“Mega Plus offered me a distinguished and unique opportunity for further developing my producing abilities. I believe that the current economical climate, competitive market and rapidly evolving distribution platforms are challenging the film producer to take a more active role in exploiting the film, therefore I was fortunate that Mega Plus helped me to understand the commercial identity of films, the end of the value chain and it strengthened my understanding of the business side of filmmaking.

I also see networking as an essential part of a producer’s competence and through Mega Plus I was able to build up my own contacts to European film producers with whom I wish to cooperate in the future”.

“What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger! This is quite true of Mega Plus as well. The intensive 3 months in Ronda coupled with 6 months of industry internships is exactly the kind of reality check young creative producers need before they step into the professional world.

 I was told that I was the first ever participant from India. I’m certain I won’t be the last as I highly recommend this program to up and coming producers from India.

It’s so hard to boil down the amazing MEGA experience into one line. But I’ll try. It’s simply THE BEST!”
