Students at IMI
The day I decided to leave my comfortable corporate career to become a filmmaker, I had only passion in me but no required technical knowledge to pursue it. So, I joined IMI and soon a new journey in my life began. Whether the basics, the technical aspects, the exposure to world cinema, the real life case studies etc., all that is part of IMI's beautifully structured course not only increased my knowledge but also gave me a huge boost of confidence. And all this culminated in my short film 'Before It Rained' and my ambitious short feature 'The Atonement'. Both the films are getting rave reviews and for that I thank IMI from the deepest of my heart. IMI Rocks!!!
