About the Fundraiser

About the Documentary

I’ve been a part of the Hindi film industry for the last 20 years in various capacities  - as a writer, director, editor and executive producer.

I belong to the Saurashtra region of Gujarat, born and brought up in Mumbai. I have  always wanted to make a film in Gujarati, my mother tongue not just for the Gujarati community but to showcase it to international audiences.

While looking for subjects, I came across many interesting stories about man and lion coexisting in Gir. That’s when I decided to experience Gir for myself by staying there for a few months and based on that experience I even come up with a script for a film. But the longer I lived in Gir, I realised Gir is undergoing a change against the challenges and pressure it faces for its long-time preservation and conservation. I needed to capture the emotions and the unrest in the air of Gir in the form of an honest documentary.

With 75 days of permission to shoot in Gir Sanctuary and GIR National Park, we have already shot for more than 600 hours of footage in and around GIR. We have travelled more than 15,000 Kms in and around the deep forest over the period of 10-12 months.

We believe that what we capture as an observer will have its own effect on the International community and within our own country and will serve as a guide for appropriate steps towards the sustainable conservation of GIR and its ecosystem.

 

 

How will the funds be used?

Till date I have utilised all my savings worth Rs. 10,00,000/- and there is further need of about Rs. 15,00,000/- as we have two more seasons to shoot (8-10 months). Having said that my crew is working free of charge and I have support worth Rs. 8,00,000/- for Camera Equipment from Accord Equips Mumbai and  and Post production support worth Rs. 4,00,000/- from Image Devices Pvt. Ltd. Mumbai, there is a cost of logistics, accommodation, travelling, food and other facilities. Also a big part of funds is needed for permit and permissions to shoot in GIR. We also need further funds for exhibition, promotion and distribution of film, as it is equally important that film reaches to maximum audience globally, so that its purpose of creating awareness is achieved and in effect of it the outlook towards the GIR is changed for its better conservation.

 

 

Why am I crowd funding?

Documentary films are considered the poorer cousins of feature films and therefore have none or very less commercial interest attached to it.  

Khamma Gir Ne is a very sensitive subject and needs to be handled and presented in a very honest style which does allow it to be aligned to corporate or other commercial sources for funding.

Hence, we are looking for support from sensitive individuals who can relate to the need of making this film for better conservation of our last few eco hotspots for future generations.
