Don’t lose your innocence, your naiveté and always watch and make films with passion. I envy you for this opportunity you have, to learn and earn a certificate in 2 years, while it took me 20 long years to achieve it on my own.
I am impressed that L V Prasad Film & TV Academy has successfully completed 7 years. I am sure this batch of filmmakers will make films with sensitivity which is the need of the hour in Indian Cinema.
