Damodara Dasa: I considered myself a film maker from 1961 to 1966. In addition to school projects and commercial jobs, I made several experimental shorts. Then I met Srila Prabhupada and my self-concept changed. I became his disciple. So for three years I trained my 8mm "home movie" camera on him.
Vaishnavas in 1967 was my first effort. Photo is at the proprietor of the seaside cabins, an elderly woman, lamented to Prabhupada that she had no children. He said to her, "Just make Krishna your son."
