Film making is story telling! It’s about the person behind the camera and his point of view. Globally, in a minute 7.5 Lacs hours are watched on OTT channels. No wonder, OTT industry is the fastest ever growing industry in the world.
70 Crore Indian population is enjoying internet and this number is going to reach up to 100+ Crore in the coming 2-3 years. Almost 80% of Indians have mobile handsets and 80% of the consumption on mobile phones is video. If we treat ‘YouTube’ as a country then it has world’s second largest population.
