Our Philosophy:

We believe that a good film-maker, irrespective of his / her role must appreciate all aspects of the process. From the choices a cinematographer confronts, understanding the director & his script, how sound and music transform a scene to assembling of images in the editing room. We belief the best way to learn them is to have a real ‘touch-feel-do’ experience.
