Bhat articulates his desire to get Kashmir based Production facilities on national and International map. “This fundamental orientation has to be seen at work in our Co-Production effort. Prior to this, we have partnered with Al Jazera, PBS, noted producers and many other big channels but much on a single camera documentary film productions. BBC World Service Co-production multiple-camera mode also was not a new experience to us. But it was of course, working with BBC in Kashmir with our facilities outside DD platform.”
Promoting the development of robust electronic media software like this, is a crucial element to building our local Television Production capabilities.
