I think the Institute of Moving Images is the only film school in India that gives such a high level of understanding and in-depth knowledge on business of Film Production at such an affordable fee. It has been a tremendous journey and eye opener for me. One of the best courses I have ever done, just loved it. Now I am working in the industry and getting ready to make my own feature film.
