Shooting the Mr Sikkim promo. A lot of Hard work!


Gangtok, 12 Aug:

In the face of it, it looks like a glamorous, breezy task, but when it comes to actually putting together an event, it requires a lot of hard work and many hours of grueling schedules. One speaks of the promo of the Mr Sikkim Manhunt which has already created a buzz with the organisers getting a tremendous response on social media.

The promo was shot at Denzong Shangrila over a period of eight hours.

"We wanted to make it different and make no compromises in quality," said Manaen Lepcha, director of the promo video.

The video entailed hours of grueling schedules with a non-stop shoot with six boys.

These boys have registered to take part in the auditions and were selected to feature in the video.

"We must say the boys worked very hard and professionally," adds Manaen.

The shoot had the boys all decked up to look their best by the organisers and Karma Salon.

One of the contestants was not sure whether he wanted to show the birth mark on his chest.

However, with a little bit of convincing, he experimented and broke the stereotype.

"I think a little bit of pushing is what it required for our boys to break the mould," adds Manaen.

Some may have a notion of not using make up or not glamming-up due to the stated notions of machismo, but with little convincing and to bring out the best of one’s potential both physically and from within, boys have been given a complete makeover, informs Yougan Tamang, one of the organisers.

Cinematographer and editor of the promo, Sabin Tamang said that the main idea was to bring out the best in terms of looks and the output.

"We are confident of taking this to another level," he adds.
