DROWN – a short film

a film by Dennis Konjengbam, Prateeksha Darabdhara & Bijoy Labuktongbam

 Shillong. Tara is getting married in 3 days. On her bachelorette’s party, she falls into a pool to find herself in a world exactly like her’s but where she doesn’t exist. 

This was our diploma film. After spending most of the given time in pre-production and script finalisation, we had only 2 months to shoot the film with almost no budget. With a Pink Scooty, a broken tripod and a DSLR , we set out to shoot a 28 scene film in under Rs. 8000.

About the Filmmakers

Dennis KonjengbamDennis
Born in in Imphal, I always felt the need to tell stories; stories inspired by people and society around me. I live about about a block away from the red light district in Imphal. The people I met there, who grew up with me, though my parents forbid me to go there in the first place, has inspired me to tell stories. I never liked the idea of “normal”. Made over 30 short, documentary film and music videos in over 2 years of college. Now working in a multinational advertising agency, I spend more time mastering the craft of writing off camera. Graduated from St. Anthony’s College, Shillong in Mass Communication and Video Production.
