I have so far produced just one movie. Being a movie producer was a lot of fun and an opportunity to watch many talented people at work, often till the early hours of the morning and usually way behind deadlines.
Shakti Rising is a two hour feature film about the human drama of entrepreneurship set in the context of a village. The film forms part of a video based course on entrepreneurship – the MBE or Microbusiness Education Certificate offered to microentrepreneurs – and is where it gets most of its audience. Currently in Tamil it will soon be dubbed in multiple South Indian languages and reshot in Hindi. Subtitled in English it was a selected feature of the South Asian Theater and Literary Arts Festival at the Smithsonian in Washington DC and various Asian film festivals from Florida to California.
