The Mumbai Suburban district (Marathi: मुंबई उपनगर जिल्हा) is a district of the state of Maharashtra in western India. Its headquarters is in Bandra (Marathi:Vandre). It consists of three administrative subdivisions or tehsils: Kurla, Andheri, and Borivali.[1] The district along with Mumbai City district and other suburban communities make up the metropolis of Mumbai on Salsette Island. The district occupies an area of 369 km².[2]

This is the second smallest district of Maharashtra, and it administratively comes under Konkan Division.

The jurisdiction of Mumbai Suburban District is from Bandra to Dahisar, from Kurla (Chuna Bhatti) to Mulund and from Kurla up to Trombay Creek.

London Indian Film Festival 2012 ident

An Ident created in Adobe After Effects CS5.5 for the The third annual London Indian Film Festival which will  run from 20 June – 3 July12  The Music is  from track  The Alkhemist”  by TJ Rehmi


DIRECTOR: Parag Sankhe PRODUCER: Debora Setnik
The Rooster Must Die is a gripping and funny short film that tells the story of a classic clash between traditional rural life and those who wish for a quieter and more suburban existence.

Inspired by the dramatic tousles between man and nature that characterised the iconic 1975 feature film Jaws, The Rooster Must Die focuses on what happens when a group of angry villagers join together to try and impose rule on a Rooster that is causing them all great distress.

When the village chairman comes under increasing pressure to find a solution he turns to Jack, a local hard man, who is very confident that he will have no problems in handling the irritating Cock.

Jack, however, soon learns that his enemy is considerably more cunning than the average chicken and when their plans for a quiet life go horribly wrong the villagers discover that an angry Rooster can wreak just as much havoc as a hungry shark.

The making of ‘Rooster Must Die’

The making of ‘Rooster’
Parag Sanke (Director) interview

Where did you find the script?

I’d always worked on factual projects and documentaries but was keen to try and produce a short fictional film so I placed an ad online and was sent a lot of scripts from all over the world. I was almost overwhelmed by how many appeared in my inbox but Kent’s The Rooster Must Die caught my eye because I thought that it was a very funny and quirky story and it was inspired by Jaws, which was my favorite film when I was a child. It was also a very good introduction to drama for me as I had to think about how to direct eight actors, a song and a rooster!

How did you make the film?

We only had a very small budget that came from self-funding and some investment from friends and everyone who worked on the film generously gave their time for free so that we could afford to provide good quality equipment and try and produce something that reflected the passion that everyone felt for the project. Deborah was the executive producer and we placed another advert online for cast and crew and were extremely happy with the team that we assembled and with what we were able to achieve with one DSLR camera.

Did you use a real rooster?

Yes, and one of the toughest things was getting hold of one! We contacted many farms but although almost everyone was willing to kindly let us have a rooster for free none of them wanted it back after filming. We didn’t think that our neighbours in central London would be very happy to be woken every morning by a crowing cockerel and couldn’t bring ourselves to wring the neck of a key cast member at the end of filming so were very relieved when a farm in Essex offered to lend us one for the day.

Why do you think that Rooster Must Die will appeal to audiences?

There are some films, such as Jaws, which are almost untouchable because they are so iconic but I hope that by taking the essence of one of the key scenes from that movie and transporting it to a small English town we have collectively come up with a funny and surprising short film that the audiences will enjoy.

Is there a message in the film?

Well you could say that it is a metaphor for the never ending battle between man and nature – or you could say that you should never count your chickens, or your roosters, before they hatch!

Cornwall, England July 2010 Canon 500D Video test

I shot this in Cornwall, England in July 2010 for testing the video option of my new Canon Rebel T1i / EOS 500D camera. It’s shot on 720 HD at 30 fpsLenses used
18-55mm kit
Canon 75 – 300 MM Zoom
I used macro extension bellows for flowers and snail.its edited in final cut pro and colour graded in Adobe after effects CS5 – i’m very impressed with the video recording on this entry level Canon 500D camera. No audio inputs in this one (this camera does record audio, but with an on board mic, so quality isn’t good) so if you want to use it for a short film, use an external DAT/sound recorder and a Clapper Board.
If you are really into the video side of the DSLR cameras then the new Canon 550D looks very impressive to me as it has an audio input connection so that you can use an external microphone.
