We appreciate you taking time to know our project.

We are Pradeep Katasani and Amar, two independent filmmakers based in Los Angeles. For over a year now, we have been developing a web-series, Silk Road, about two Indian (specifically Telugu) characters set in San Diego. With a well-crafted plot and rich production values, we hope to create a first of its kind web-series that sheds light on the Indian immigrant experience in the US.

Although the Telugu tv market has not been fully explored, we believe there is a huge opportunity in tapping into it. A well produced pilot and dedicated fanbase are essential to attract the attention of popular networks for a potential deal. As independent filmmakers with limited resources, we do not have the capital to finance this development stage ourselves. Going forward, to showcase the full potential of our idea (screenplays, teaser, legal costs, initial marketing, pilot episode etc), we need financial support from generous patrons.

For a detailed budget of how every dollar raised will be spent in the developmental stage, please have a look at our budget.

We are proud to say that our project is now fiscally sponsored by Film Independent, a Los Angeles based organization that champions promising independent filmmakers across the world. Through them, we are now eligible to receive tax-deductible donations for the purposes of further developing the concept for our web-series.

We invite you to come join us and become part of this project. We hope you will enjoy looking through our project material. If you think our idea has potential or if you want to support the efforts of two honest, hard-working, and independent Telugu filmmakers, please feel free to contact us anytime. We will be delighted to talk to you.

Thank you!
