Im just thinking about the way the project started…
Makepeace S of The Alternative visited Thalam for an exhibition launch and we had a half a minute chat on Korkai. Just post that meeting, Selvaprakash L and I met with the team, Aarti Mohan & Rathish Balakrishnan at The Alternative and we were on board for the collaboration project to celebrate the World Water Day. Everything else fell in place, say Catch Every Drop photo contest, followed by an Exhibition at Max Mueller Bhavan, Photo Workshops and Walks across 8 lakes in the city.
Then came the idea of making a community film which can be used to create awareness among the general public as a medium of communication. The same film can be used to showcase the success stories of Lake Champions, and Government Officials involved in the process. We shot this for 3 days and sat in the editing table for 4 days… and this is what we made at the end of it.
