We're Making a Short: Dandekar Makes a Sandwich

I can't believe it's been over a year since Leena Pendharkar and I have been making short films together! We started working on short films for our Web channel So Natural TV. And now we're making a short film based on a feature-length script that Leena wrote called Days with Dandekar. 
The short film is called Dandekar Makes a Sandwich. We have cast the hilarious Brian George of Seinfeld fame to the lead role of RK Dandekar, a lonely man who goes on a journey to find his stolen Volvo and finds himself along the way. In the short, Dandekar makes a sandwich and an unlikely connection.
We've started an IndieGoGo campaign to help raise the financing to make the short. We have some fun gifts at each contribution level so we hope you check out the campaign. Maybe you need a tote bag or a T-shirt?
In all seriousness though, I am really proud of the work I have been doing with Leena. We are two independent filmmakers who teamed up to make fun, entertaining stories. I have been producing her work because I really believe in her talent. I think her work has something to say and she has a really fun aesthetic and wry wit - I'm really drawn to her storytelling. I hope you are too.
With your help, we plan to shoot Dandekar Makes a Sandwich next month. Then next year, we aim to film the feature-length script Days with Dandekar - click on this title and become a fan on Facebook!
As I mention above, we have started an IndieGoGo fundraiser to help raise the money to make the short - and any additional funds will go towards the making of the full feature. 
If any of you are able to contribute - whether it's money or posting about the project for your friends to see - we would be so grateful. Thank you so much.
