The distance between a person sitting infront of the screen and the person who is actually on the screen seems too little. Infact, simply looking, it is just 70 Meters. However, the journey from the audience seat to actually showing up on screen is not easy by any means. We have taken a few steps in that direction and now we invite you to join us. Lets make dreams happen!
