    Great information! There are numerous schools out there to help give knowledge. Very few avenues are there to search and source specific jobs after your film education is over. Normally the trend is to go to Mumbai and start your “Struggle” and/or find a mentor depending on your luck or contacts. There was no avenue available which caters to this need until now.
