What we're about

This is a group for aspiring/amateur Indian actors and filmmakers based in the Bay Area who want to create their own opportunities and market themselves.

Why do we need such a group?

We all know how hard it is to get that first big opportunity. If you are a filmmaker, you have to sell your idea to potential buyers like studios and producers who believe in it. If you haven't made any film before, no one is going to believe you. If you are an actor, you need to go through auditions and casting directors. But if you have not acted before, you have less credibility as opposed to an actor who has several credits or online work to his name. Last but not the least, because of visa constraints a lot of us won't be able to audition or work for a studio as a maker.

But, you increase your chances greatly if you have an online presence as an actor or filmmaker and your work can be seen online. This allows to not wait for the right opportunity to come to us but instead create our own opportunities our own way and gain some recognition.
