About the project

Unfateful is a feature film shot entirely guerilla style on the road using an IPhone 7 Plus camera! The film follows a scriptless approach and covers more than 15,000 kms across three states, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh.



India's First Road Film Shot on an Iphone 7 Plus Camera


Unfateful is a passion project for the entire team. Before we started shooting the film, since most of the shoot was going to be done on the road, we realized that it was impossible to shoot using a DSLR camera, especially considering our financial constraints. 

So we started brainstorming to come up with different affordable options. During these discussions the DOP suggested that we could use Iphone 7 Plus instead for principal photography. And since we could only afford to buy this phone once in our budget, the entire film has been carefully made on a single IPhone 7 plus phone. 



"Robert Rodriguez's El Mariachi, Christopher Nolan's The Following, Satyajit Ray's Pather Panchali - all these legendary films have been made independently on a micro budget. They have all been experimental with their narrative styles. That is exactly where I was finding myself. Being influenced by a wide variety of filmmakers and their journey and philosophy, I was developing my own perspective and vision." - Seby Varghese (Writer, Director, Producer)



Micro Budget Feature Film

We had an amazing script and a dedicated team that was madly passionate about the story. We weren't going to let money stand in our way! So we pooled in our resources and managed to collect 15 lacs through personal savings, loans and help from friends and family. We cut corners wherever possible, worked around our budget and started shooting the film.


“Slowly, what had started out as a passion project between friends, grew from a mere weekend project to a systematic 9 month long project that brought people from all over the country together!” - Jophina Joseph, Producer


Scriptless Style of Filmmaking


Being first time filmmakers, we have no formal film school background or any previous experience with a film crew. All the knowledge we have about cinema comes through hours of self-schooling and experimenting. In Unfateful, we've made sure that this fresh perspective that we have towards cinema, works to our advantage. 


Unfateful was made using the scriptless approach to filmmaking. We had a bound script, which we used as a reference. This helped in achieving a distinct narrative style for an Indian audience, while at the same time worked well with the aesthetic style of the film.



“I realized that my lack of formal education in filmmaking was leading to a unique aesthetic towards storytelling. Something that was new, raw and compelling. That’s why I decided to go with my gut while shooting.” - Seby Varghese, Writer-Director-Producer

About the filmmaker 

Seby Varghese - Writer | Director | Producer

I’m an auditor by profession but storytelling has always intrigued me. I have been in awe of cinema since the day I watched Jurassic Park on Star Movies. Slowly I started making short small experimental films with early mobile phones. My first short film was a horror story, shot and edited live in 2006 using two mobile phones: the first Sony Walkman and LG camera phone.

Why crowdfunding?

We were aware from the very beginning that we will only be able to handle the financing till we reached post-production. We had planned and prepared for it. Since there were many risky factors involved, we did not want to risk a lot of money from others till we had something tangible. Now that we have a tangible product of our idea, we are seeking for crowdfunding for the post-production expenses of our film. We want you to support us if you think this film deserves to be on the big screen someday.

How will the money be used?

Rs. 500000 in Sound design

Rs. 180000 in Music

Rs. 120000 in Colour grading studio

Rs. 100000 in VFX editing

Rs. 100000 in Admin fees


What are the risks and challenges associated with your project?

The biggest risk we're facing right now is that eventhough the film is amazing, the return on investment is not guaranteed. It's a passion project for the entire team so the only dream we have for Unfateful is that we see the film to its completion.

Why should you believe me and why should you fund this project?

We have been on a roller coaster ride for the last 10 months. We have accomplished something beautiful and worth giving a shot. We have crossed the major hurdle of production and are now closer to seeing our idea into a reality. We believe the film will set its mark in the coming years, will be spoken about because of the effort and pain that went behind it, the passion and love for cinema as a storytelling medium and will introduce many new talent to the industry. I believe we will be able to contribute our part in getting Indian cinema to the global audience. And YOU can help us accomplish all this.
