In the West it happened long back but It took some time for the complete change to happen in India. Its a conversational Documentary, we traveled across the country and interviewed around 80 technicians from Bollywood to Kollywood,few names to mention like Mani Ratnam, Kamal Hassan, Seengethan Srinivas, Suresh Babu, Santosh Sivan, Trivikram, K K Senthil Kumar, RGV, Rajeev Menon, Vikram Bhat and Many more.. right from writing a script to the final stage of projection everything is Digitalized in our country today.
The soul reason behind doing this Project is Mr.Basi Reddy sir,Chairman & CEO of Digiquest India Ltd.,
Its his Dream Project! and I thank him from the bottom of my heart. Basi Sir is one of the pioneers in introducing the Digital Medium in our country especially in Film making, way back in 1999 – 2000 .
When no one could even imagine that one day the entire Film making Process will be digitalised, he and his team worked very hard in spreading the knowledge by arranging several workshops getting several high-end equipment’s from abroad.
He always wanted to document this era of transformation. so that 10 or 20 years down the lane our future generation can always look back at this Documentary as a source of study material, he is Planning to screen this Documentary in every Film School across the country.
