Film Zoya filmed in the forests of #Kanha National Park has won the student Emmy award. Best part was the Kanha forest itself which the crew experienced.
Group heard the alarm calls indicating the predator on the either side of crew – and #Indian Gaur pounding through the forest. There was silence for the next 10 minutes as the crew froze. With great difficulty the crew took the shot and fleed.
Zoya won third place in drama for 2016 college television award. Setthi beautifully dealt with the subject of wildlife and its conservation through the eyes of wildlife conservationist. it is an emotional trip to search for missing #tiger while trying to reconnect with his daughter.The wildlife background has been provided by biological anthropologist Jessica Lynch Alfaro. she acted as Sethhi’s mentor as he wrote the film’s script.
No doubt that idea of conservation is big concern globally which has stuck the right chord with the audiences and judges at the film festival.
“It’s extremely validating and encouraging to have one’s creative efforts recognized by the television academy foundation,” Sethhi said. “it’s a fairytale start to life after film school.”
