We had already informed that Lucia director Pawan Kumar's next movie will be titled C10H14N2 (Nicotine). The movie is expected to be ready by September 2015. The director's previous movie Lucia was made using crowd funding. Well, the director is all set to repeat the same with his next movie.
Pawan Kumar has set a budget of 3 crores for the movie but wants to raise 5 crores.. The director started an online campaign to raise the money for his movie. In a detailed write up the director has explained why he prefers to crowdfunding over conventional producers.
The movie will be content driven and will not revolve around the star. Therefore, a big league actor will not be interested in making such a movie. While C10H14N2 is an action-thriller, the focus will obviously be on the script of the movie. With no big superstars in the movie, producers never come forward to fund the movie.
The director also lamented that such kind of movies do not fetch good money through satellite rights. In such cases, the only option for the director is to go public to get funding. The director intends to make an original movie with a strong content. He did manage to do that with Lucia.
The people who donate to this cause will be able to download the digital print of the movie three weeks after the release date. The campaign started on November 1st and will end by November 30th.By end of November we will know how successful Pawn Kumar is in gaining the trust of the viewers.
