Students at IMI
For long I have been part of print journalism and wondering how to switch to electronic media. IMI program gave me the courage to venture out and actually make a film. The initial phobia disappeared in a week. I liked the way my confidence was built slowly but firmly. Most importantly I learnt the craft of documentary filmmaking with immense fun.
