COVID-19 pandemic led to shutting down of several businesses around the world but there is one sector that has grown manifold since the start of the pandemic is online video streaming platforms.
During lockdown, people spent majority of their time watching films on OTT platforms including Netflix, Amazon, Hotstar, MX player etc., especially during quarantine.
Filmmaker Piyush Pande from Nagpur contributed in his own way by bringing films to the audiences. He linked more than 100 filmmakers from across India to the OTT platforms and released their films on the same.
Piyush Pande, owner at Piyush Pande Films, explained, “Being a film maker myself, I have directed as well a produced films and web series in the past and sold them to the buyers, releasing it on various online and offline platforms. It really gave me a detailed insight of the film business and distribution. I did some good networking in the film industry.”
He added, “Most of the times, a producer or a director does not know how to sell their film. I help them to find a suitable platform; a film maker can submit their films and after reviewing, the back team will find the best platforms for the film.”
Pande explained further, “Everyone is watching short films, feature films, documentaries, web series etc., and there’s lot of good content available, which is still not seen by the audiences as it has not been released yet. My aim is to release those unreleased content.”
Piyush Pande has released films on platforms like Amazon Prime, Mubi, MX player, SonyLIV, Ullu, Hotstar, Netflix, Sheemaroo, Tatasky, Airtel, VI, Jiocinema, etc.
