We talked to Satyarth Shaurya Singh
, who is an independent filmmaker
and the founder of LightsonFilms, a film studio based out of Mumbai that does a monthly screening of independent cinema under the banner of Peepshow @antiSocial. The other half of the duo, Namah Shah
is a self taught MUA
and a visual artist
and has worked on projects like corporate murals, luxury branding and packaging.
Together they have worked on an award winning short film and independent music video as well as a few travelogues and a film for Kargil tourism
. Their work has really been the highlight of our mornings today.
Satyarth (ST): So me being a film maker/visual artist and Namah also being a visual artist and a make-up enthusiast we really wanted to create some interesting content this Halloween. Around the same time homegrown contacted Namah and we decided to do twisty the clown and the Black dahlia as our looks. We wanted to keep the film also not very make up based but present it like a short story to instigate a thought or a feeling in the viewers mind. And that's exactly what happened.
S: 5 couple inspirations for halloween
ST: Undoubtedly the following:
- Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
- Frankenstein and bride of Frankenstein
- Red Riding Hood and the Wolf
- Vampire & its prey
- Mr White & Jesse Pinkman
S: if Namah was a witch, her heart would be ...
ST: ...in a perspicuous object like a crystal
S: Which is the horror movie/ character that still gives you the chills every time you watch it?
ST: Emily Rose from Exorcism of Emily Rose
Namah: Lady from the Mirror in "Mirrors"
S: DIY costume that satyarth can easily pull out out of his wardrobe.
Namah: Vampire; he wears a lot of black. Black pants with a black T-shirt and hoodie (from his closet) maybe some hair products, fangs and blood (from mine)
