Present at the event was eminent film-maker, Karan Johar who provided insights on the role of technology in digitizing the world of cinema. He added, “I’m one of the rare few people from the current lot of filmmakers who made the shift to digital editing, along with Aditya Chopra. There’s been a sea change within the film fraternity when it comes to using technology. I actually edited all my films using literally a scissor in hand, snipping and slicing film together. Technology means you can try fade-ins and blurs and after the initial excitement died down, we understood how to make the most of the technology that was here to stay. The whole change has been completely, diametrically phenomenal.”
