Producers will be able to announce audition calls and also time their auditions into a schedule. At a single click, over 300 SMSes can be shot-off to aspirants."

Production properties, equipment, talent, technicians, creative agencies, shootings, line producers, production houses and agents are amongst the listed entities also available for upload on the portal alongwith their portfolio or show-reel.


"We‘ve gathered information on shooting locations from film commissions from about 120 countries. For India, we successfully used 28 RTI applications to the Archaeogical Survey of India (ASI) and Airports Authority of India (AAI) and organised permissions to shoot at restricted sites. We‘ve also applied to the police commissioner (Mumbai) and the customs for and received a detailed listing for shoot dos and don‘ts, fee structures, rights and privileges," he says.
