Arka & the making of Ginnima
Really, I don’t have any idea where to start this story. From the Dhaka based audio visual production house? Or that journey to be a Khalasi? or about that boy who had a handycam? Actually none of them right now.
When he started to move on for Ginnima he faced a lot of obstacles. He lost all the footage before the final edit. A whole slot shooting footage was totally missing. Then he did re-shoot them. But that was not enough to complete the story smoothly. Because of his editing skill he finally complete the story with that footage he had.
It was not easy to finance two times for one film.
Director Abhijit Arka finished this film with the finance of his won production company khalasi talkies.
As a director he performed good in his first production. He is very nice to his team and He always appreciates his team.
Arka said, He is really thankful to Bongo BD and to his team for their supports. Currently he is working in a Cinema with talented Director Tokon Thaakoor.
