Hide n Seek
Vivek Kamat
India

Having fun in the time of Social Distancing and that is exactly what we did ! We wore our masks kept our distance and made this film.
We used a treatment of old B – Grade Indian Horror films and tried to replicate the over the top and in your face sound and visual design style.
It is a collaborative effort between director Vivek Kamat, based in Mumbai, and Creative agency Beantown Union based in Bengaluru, which are separated by 985.5kms
Music was done by Leslee Lewis who was sitting at his home 28.4 kms away.

 

Stay Home
Kiran Koshy
United States

Kiran was born and raised in India, studied to become a bureaucrat but ended up in Advertising as a self-taught art director, worked as a freelance cartoonist with his own strip in a major newspaper and founded a concert promotion agency before eventually heading West to grad school and a decade at The Richards Group. Kiran also teaches art direction as an adjunct at Texas A&M Commerce. And he’s one hell of a table tennis player.

 

Tiempo de espera
Mateo Llosa
Peru

Mateo is a 26 year-old Peruvian director based in Lima. When he’s not staring inquisitively into the abyss, he spends his time pitching for ads, trying to watch all the movies because then (in italics) he’ll know, and, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, sits down to ponder how Lucrecia Martel wrote those darn screenplays. He likes to edit and sound design his own work but is slowly learning to let go.
