Netflix’s upcoming web series TYPEWRITER is being helmed and written by Filmfare and National Award Winning Bengali director Sujoy Ghosh. Sujoy Ghosh opens up about his problems which he faces during writing the web series. He says, “I had a hard time in the beginning and it is really tough.”
Well, five episodes series TYPEWRITER reveals the secrets behind the mysterious deaths in Bardez begin to unveil. What do you do when even your home isn’t safe? While sharing his views on writing this web series, Sujoy Ghosh told IANS, “It is really tough. The process of writing stories for a long-format medium as a web series is quite tough, and Typewriter was a learning process. I literally had to unlearn so much from my habit of writing the script of a film, which has a duration of just three hours.”
He also added, “I have also written a short film, and this (web series) is such a long format of storytelling. I had a hard time in the beginning. The good thing is, now that I am done with my first web series, I can write and direct another one with the ease I make a film. Creatively, I know the path.”
‘Typewriter’ is a horror series with the backdrop in Goa. The story deals with three young friends in Goa who plan to search an old villa for ghosts, but when a new family moves in, the home’s buried past resurfaces in chilling ways.
Sujoy Ghosh stated, “I live in the characters as I write them, so I know their physical appearance, their essence, which I look for in the actors I casts. If Jisshu does not look like (his character) Amit, then as a director it is my failure, because I have to bring out the character through the actor’s personality.”
Typewriter premieres July 19. Be ready for the legend of Bardez Villa comes to life.
