AV Digital Services is Plymouth, MN based film production company. It had undertaken the current project of making a feature film project “Mithya”. Though it has extensive experience in handling shorter film projects like advertisements and web videos, the company had no experience executing a feature length film project. This project incorporated a few project management techniques to finish this project efficiently.


This project would not have come to fruition if not for the support of my professors in the Masters of Engineering Management program at St. Cloud State University- Dr. Hiral Shah and Dr. Ben Baliga who along with Dr. Balsy Kasi have guided me to undertake this unusual but highly rewarding project. I would like to thank Dr. Ben Baliga for his support and encouragement through the Master’s program. I would like to especially thank Dr. Hiral Shah for her patience and her expert guidance during the course of this project. I would like to thank Ms. Beverly Arro and Ms. Sue Pope for their timely administrative support. I would also like to thank Mr. Anil Kundeti, director and producer at AV Digital Services, Plymouth, MN for having me on board for this ambitious project. I would like to thank all my family and friends without whose support I couldn’t have attempted this endeavor
