Whistle Stop: Nurturing Talent

The project was stalled for over a year, but finally, music maestro AR Rahman and filmmaker Shekhar Kapur could see one of their dreams of the non-celluloid kind come true. Together they have launched Qyuki, a website, which acts as a talent repository. The website allows consumers to create content of any variety photographs, videos, music, short films, poems, short stories and so on that can then be made available for viewing under various categories based on interests (the way Pinterest deals with content but only of photographic nature) or communities of people one wishes to engage with. The biggest draw that the website is likely to have is the fact that it will have successful people from across creative fields also engaging in creation and co-creation with regular members, thus making it a platform for talent hunt.
