Training in Film Production a Must, Says Shabana Azmi
The actress spoke on the importance of film production while interacting with the media when she hosted a painting competition to celebrate the 100th birth anniversary of renowned poet and her father Kaifi Azmi on Saturday.
Veteran actress-activist Shabana Azmi feels that Indian film institutes must teach film production to their students.
Asked if Indian film institutes don’t put emphasis on film production as compared to acting and direction, she said: “It is absolutely right thing. I always say this thing because out of our country, there are lots of institutions where production is taught.
“In India, for production, you just need to have money and it doesn’t require any kind of experience. I feel film institute’s should understand this thing that production also needs training.”

After the raging success of Netflix’s original interactive choose-your-own-adventure film ‘Black Mirror: Bandersnatch’, Google-owned YouTube is now working on interactive shows and live specials.
Following the traditional format of interactive shows, the content YouTube is planning would allow viewers to make their own choices throughout the show and eventually conclude an ending of their choice.
The project is under the supervision of Ben Relles, former Head of YouTube’s unscripted programming, SlashGear reported on Tuesday.
Developers who create this kind of interactive content develop multiple storylines for the same show.
To keep the story flow smooth, the different storylines are made to intersect at certain points, resulting in different potential endings for a single show, which once started, cannot be paused, rewinded or forwarded.
With Bandersnatch that launched in December last year, Netflix became the first content platform to attempt an interactive entertainment aimed at adults.
Because of its design to keep viewers hooked watching and playing, Bandersnatch did not come with a set run-time.
However, according to information available on public domains, it lasted for a peiod of 40-90 minutes roughly before getting to the end credits.
