With medium and technology becoming more accessible, smaller towns have emerged as the new talent pools for film-making, said Rajiv Menon, cinematographer and founder of the Mindscreen Film Institute, Chennai.

But that said, getting a break in the film industry has always been hard. Unlike in other industries, an aspirant here faces numerous challenges from the number of competitors to the lack of money to make showreels for themselves. Although the trend is changing, actors and producers are still skeptical about providing opportunities to newcomers, unless they have formidable talent.
Luckily for newcomers, there is a rising demand for various types of talent.And when the talent is coupled with the reach of social media, YouTube channels and digital entertainment platforms emerge and some of them go viral and become household names.Experts say the volume of audiovisual content being produced today is 100 times more than that being made two decades ago.
Evolution of technology, which is cheap and readily available, has pushed film schools to introduce new courses. Mindscreen for instance, is planning to offer courses on sound engineering, editing and VFX.
When we started working, the base film was around 100 ASA (film speed). Today , the ISO of the digital camera is 800 ASA, which means it is eight times more sensitive to light than the film that we were using back then. You can now work with available light, but need to study the role of art, costumes and various aspects, which go into creating a memorable film, said Menon.
