Heritage Walk of Film Studios

A walk of the film studios of the city would be a big draw.
I tried to get film writer and historian Randor Guy into it.
Randor isn't biting. He says he has lots of writing to do - he begins work at 3.30 a.m.!
I am not giving up.

Our idea is to have a trail from Vijaya Studios to Prasad Studios via AVM's campus.
The people at these three places will welcome us. But we need people who worked in the studios in the 50s and 60s to join us and share stories.
We also need people who worked here and lived closeby to share stories of this area.

A film editor has promised his notes. But who will lead the walk?

Two walks have been firmed up. One inside Fort St. George on Aug.17. And one on Mount Road on Aug.24.

It would be nice to have a walk in Vepery and Purusawalkam. Are there old-timers who can put this together? There are no costs involved in this! Plan the walking tour, let people know and go! If some one can sponsor coffee and snacks, the walk can end on a warm note!
