NEW DELHI, India, February 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Mediakraft announced that in two weeks' time it will launch the documentary series 6.9 Sikkim Rising live over Internet. The press conference of the launch will be held in New Delhi, India and will be streamed live internationally. 6.9 Sikkim Rising documentary series is an independent production initiative undertaken by Mediakraft to help the earthquake victims of Sikkim, a disaster affected state in India. The press conference and live launch of a documentary series over the Internet is an industry first in India.
Primarily made for distribution by Video on Demand (VOD) over the Internet, the pilot episode of the 6-hour long travelogue-cum-documentary series will be made available live for the general public and national and international press and media executives.
After the launch, the project will also be made available to various international, national and regional mainstream TV channels on a revenue share/royalty basis between February and March 2012.
"I am delighted that we have already received over 2,500 likes on Facebook and around 150 followers on Twitter, a number that includes international journalists. This has been achieved within a few weeks of the project's details being made public on Facebook, Twitter and Youtube. Our supporter base is growing by the day. Considering people are also talking about this project internationally we expect a good number of participants from across the world for the live launch," said Aditya Basu, Managing Director, Mediakraft Pvt. Ltd.
Mediakraft Pvt. Ltd. has undertaken a noble venture to make a travelogue documentary mini-series on the effects of the 6.9 magnitude earthquake that hit Sikkim on 18 September 2011 evening. The tremors of the quake were felt wide across the Indian subcontinent. In the course of the series the plight of the people of Sikkim will be highlighted along with in-depth coverage of the socio-economic problems being faced by Sikkim post the earthquake.
To make people aware of the issue the series will be made available to the regional, national and international markets via both the New and the Old Media. An abridged version will be made available for special hall screenings on request and will be released over the Internet.
"We intend to create international awareness about what has happened in Sikkim and will highlight how Sikkim needs additional funding and an increase in tourism related revenues. I will also like to thank the scores of people and companies who have come forward to help us in making this project a success," said Aditya Basu. "We also intend to donate 10% of our profits to government and non-government initiatives in Sikkim. We are also planning to launch 6.9 Sikkim Rising branded merchandise to raise funds for the earthquake affected people and their rehabilitation," Aditya Basu added.
