Our approach to Film Making: We believe it is all about ‘telling a story’, everything else is secondary. Film-Making is not about Cameras and Gizmos. The camera types specified in the title are only indicative. What we are here to preach and practice is, ‘How to tell your story interestingly without making a hole in your pocket or running into debt!’
