Shikha Kapur, Amit Chandra and Prabhat Choudhary announce “The Sourrce” 

It partners with Ormax Media to launch “The Sourrce” and offer insights.

Mumbai: Shikha Kapur, Amit Chandra and Prabhat Choudhary launch “The Sourrce”, an industry first story library committed to harnessing original storytelling from India. It also collaborates with Ormax Media to offer insights and audience feedback to the development team by curating an appeal score to every story before it makes it to the library.

It endeavours to put a structure to the process of harvesting ideas and concepts for story and screenplay development.

Film director Rajkumar Hirani sources the first story and steps in as chief creative mentor.

"The Sourrce" has cultivated a deeply entrenched, first of its kind network of story scouts across the diverse geography of India, spanning across 21 states. Scouts from Kashmir, North East, Hindi heartland, Punjab, Bengal, Maharashtra and Southern states send stories and ideas to the Sourrce’s development team in Mumbai daily.

From true horror stories to folk tales, to rare human achievement stories and rich mythology, the development team at "The Sourrce" is processing an array of incredible story inputs from across the country daily. "The Sourrce" also has dedicated teams to tap into unexplored narratives in the medical, legal and business world.

With this, Ormax Media will offer an industry-wide subscription for access to its library and will also curate stories specific to development briefs.

Commenting on this partnership, Ormax Media founder and CEO Shailesh Kapoor said, “At Ormax Media, we have been testing scripts for films and series extensively over the last decade. But the association with "The Sourrce" is particularly special because it allows us to contribute to the development process right from the onset, from the insight or the idea to the story and then the screenplay. In a rapidly-evolving industry, the importance of audience insights cannot be undermined, and I'm glad that the leadership team at "The Sourrce" is committed to using audience inputs in their pursuit to develop great content for the Indian theatrical and streaming market.”

Adding to it, filmmaker and chief creative mentor Rajkumar Hirani said: “This is a very powerful idea and something that our industry needs. The content pipeline has just exploded and as an industry we need more and more ideas. "The Sourrce" puts a structure to the process of finding creative ideas. While I wouldn’t be involved in the day to day functioning of the company I would be mentoring and guiding the creative team.”
