Outlook's anniversary issue, curated by Editor Chinki Sinha and guest editors Aradhana Seth and Gautam Pemmaraju, is an ode to the below-the-line cinema workers.
Behind what appears on the silver screen is a vast, dynamic, living, breathing ecosystem of labour, material, technology and processes that shape the creative outcome of a film.
From the gaffer who lights up the set to the set dresser who resets the pillow covers, each person is an essential part of the story being told, the film being seen.
We bring to the limelight, some of these anonymous workers – the backbones of any film.
