People in the short film circle knew very well about Naan8 and its critical acclaim. Eventually, the team was invited to make a web series under the Popular banner of Ondraga Entertainment. We did manage to get a sneak-peek into things that went into the making of Naan8. There was a nice shot of the sea which did take place in Andaman & Nicobar Islands and you could ask us, whether they went to this island for a short film’s sake, The answer is no. That scene was already shot during a previous vacation except the beach scene ( cover image) which was shot in Chennai.
