The India Film Project is a cinematic narrative film collaborating with real people and stories from the natives of Northern India.
The script was written with true events in mind, shaped from the stories of the Christians who sacrifice for their faith each and every day. This noble way of life becomes the backbone of our film’s plot.
Conflict over religion extends to every culture and country on the globe today, and is expressed with an entirely unique perspective in the film.
The story follows a young man, who having grown up in the poorest slums of India, finds true hope when he trusts Christ. Such a decision, however, is seen as traitorous to your culture and family, often leaving these young Christians shunned from the life they once knew.
Risks and challenges
TRAVEL & LOCATION:
We understand that filming a documentary in the country of India is no small undertaking. There are issues of sensitivity in the culture, logistics of traveling from city to city, language barrier, and conflicting world views that often make it difficult to fully grasp the motive behind the actions we see. We have counted the cost and have made adequate preparation for these challenges.
We are addressing these issues in a few different manners. We are relying upon organizations, friends, and churches inside of the country to help give us guidance. Our director has extensive travel experience having spent over a year of his life traveling in southeast asia working in media in missions. Our coordinator for logistics has been working on developing relationships in the country for the last three years in preparation for a project of this nature.
Many narrations and voice-overs are used to guide the story. Dialogue is spoken in the native languages, taking the viewer deeper into the world of Northern India.
This will be FundamentalMedia's first time editing a 45 minute documentary. On average we will shoot about 2-4hrs of video per day while we are in Northern India. When we we return we will have roughly 40 hours worth of video which will need to be edited into to a 45 minute documentary. This is a huge undertaking requiring one editor to work on the project full time for nearly two months.
