Have you ever seen electronics? When one talks about pottery, one can see the clay and pot. When one talks about carpentry one can see the tools and joints.

Film Making with Ally

She is 14yrs old, she has just finished a filmmaking course, she wanted to share her learnings with us at Aarohi. She prepared a presentation on filmmaking and she took a session with us. She also worked on making a film with some of us. It was great having her at Aarohi. We had a wonderful session with her on filmmaking. As she shared "Filmmaking is just not picking camera and's an art. It requires a lot of detailing, preparation and understanding". She inspired us with her story, her passion.
