‘Thithi’ writer Ere Gowda’s ‘Balekempa’ chosen for NFDC Film Bazaar’s Work-In-Progress Lab

Gowda’s directorial debut will feature non-actors from Mandya, says a report.

Script writer Ere Gowda’s directorial debut Balekempa (Bangle Seller) has been chosen at the Work-In-Progress Lab at the NFDC Film Bazaar 2017, reported The Times of India. The Thithi script writer’s film, which reportedly features non-actors from Mandya, is among the five films chosen at the Bazaar.

Gowda’s script for Thithi (2016) too was picked up by the lab in 2014.

At the lab this year, Gowda spent four days with mentors who watched his film. “The four days I spent with them were very nice,” he told the publication. “I am lucky to have got good mentors — Derek Malcolm (film critic), Marco Mueller (festival director, Pingyao International Film Festival), Philippa Campbell (producer,) Olivia Stewart (producer) and Jacques Comets (editor). They wasted no time and got straight to the film, discussing technical aspects and giving me priceless feedback. The mentors gauge our potential, support our ideas and have several discussions. I am a self-taught filmmaker and have learnt by watching and understanding. So, it goes without saying that it has helped me immensely.”

A phone so stunning that it deserves its own photoshoot

Presenting the Moto X4, crafted to perfection.

Precision-crafted glass and metal design, an anodised aluminium frame, easy to hold and featuring beautiful contours, the Moto X4 is crafted to perfection indeed.

With the distinctive placement of the rear cameras, this phone makes a great subject for a photographic series.

The light reveals the fluidity of its body; curves that fit perfectly in the contours of a palm.

Reclining on a bed of satin, the glass-encased phone blends into the folds of the luxurious fabric.

The slimness, seamlessness and solidity of the phone make for a great profile shot.

A stunning design which is IP68 rated water-resistant too, it is as beautiful as it is strong.

We partnered with photographer Gaurav Sawn to create this series. Says Gaurav, “The glass sandwich design looks extremely good and the reflections on the back panel make the phone stand out. This is a phone that is best used without a case. The curved corners were also very comfortable to hold. All in all, really enjoyed shooting this phone!”

While this phone is elegant and crafted to perfection, it is also extremely tough, being protected from scratches with Corning® Gorilla® Glass that stretches all the way around.

You don’t need to sacrifice of performance either. It’s packed with a 2.2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 630 processor and comes with a TurboPower™ Charger which means hours of power in minutes!

For the music lover, this phone is a boon. With simultaneous connectivity of up to four Bluetooth® audio devices at the same time, you can build your own stereo system without worrying about cables.

The dual rear cameras – a 12MP that lets you focus faster and get great results even on dark, cloudy days, and an 8 MP camera, with wide angle lens makes your most ambitious photos look all the more impressive.
