Peoplessss, the below video was shot inside our office for our 2008 annual day celebrations.
Directed by: KK (Krishna Kumar)
Story & Screenplay, SFX by : Vimmuuu (oh, that’s me !)
Editing, Cinematography by : VJ (Vijay Shankar)
A ghost 'accidently' enters the sales floor of Synaptris at 12 am during the quarter end. The US sales force which works during the night hours, commonly referred as the ‘Graveyard Shift’ were the only people left in the building. Little did she know that the sales force is even scarier than her likes during the quarter-end because of the sales pressure. The ghost experiences a tough time trying to scare them, but all her efforts go in vain. She gets fed up, frustrated and bored, and begins to leave when she suddenly realizes something !
It is a 09. 31 video and could be viewed by any age group as it does not have obscenity in any form. The end credits would help you understand the cast and crew.
***Spoilers ahead ***
Now few words from me as the scriptwriter (Man! Am I enjoying this or what ???) :
Its my first attempt at 'physical' scripting (in 3hrs flat :D). So please, don’t look for logic. It’s as nonsensical as a David Dhawan or a Priyadarshan movie. The histrionics you watch in the video is just a replica of what we actually do during our office timings. A couple of scenes had to be altered taking the actors image and situation into consideration. For example, the video starts with the ghost entering the gate when the security enquires about the ID card and later on the ghost takes the lift to reach us. And the scene involving me was supposed to be entirely different; I would be opening my blog and compelling the ghost to go through my latest post. But according to the director, that would spoil my image and so the next best characteristic of mine was shot. The video was supposed to end with the wallpaper scene “When in doubt, just sell”, but we extended it a little bit from there to....ummm…to…aaah! don’t ask me, ask the director !!!
