Students at IMI
I joined IMI Filmmaking foundation program in Aug 2008 to understand the basics. My work schedule was extremely hectic and there was no way I could join an elaborate course. I must confess that when I joined IMI, I was a bit skeptical about their claims of creating film makers from people with no background whatsoever - and that too, over such a short duration of time. I did not even have a still camera at that time - forget a movie camera. I was also not a great movie buff, but just a strong curiosity to understand this domain. But today, I can proudly say that I am a film-maker. My final short film of 20 min duration gave me those moments of fame which I had never dreamt of. Many thanks to IMI for this wonderful course and to their Director- Mr Pankaj Roy for his out-of-the-world teaching (excellent teaching would be an understatement!). This course has been a turning point in my career.
