He spoke at length about using a high-definition camera with P2 memory to shoot films.
For countries that cannot afford to splash money on filmmaking, the P2 HD Varicam camera is a good option for getting quality equivalent to celluloid films, he said.
He will also organize a two-day course on filmmaking in the city on August 20 and 21.
