I met with some of the guys behind homegrown movie, SOLUS. SOLUS, a short film made as part of the 48 Hour Film Project  in Dubai won the BEST FILM AWARD and will now represent Dubai at the Filmapalooza 2012 in the United States in March 2012.

I spoke with the Producer/Director, Kalyan Chakravarthy, Producer/Cinematographer/Editor, Rohit Jayakaran, Scriptwriter, Vikram Ahuja and Co-Music Composer, Govind Varrier. Mo Rida, who brings the 48 Hour Film Project to Dubai also spoke to Dubai in a Frame.

Since it is still doing the rounds at various film festivals, stay tuned to their Face book page here on when you can watch this seven minute winner of a short film.
