Film Making

The Film Making course is specially designed for those students who not only want to learn film direction but additionally also want to acquire a specialized knowledge of all the technical skills that are used in film making viz -Cinematography, Sound, Editing, Acting & Production.

While giving theoretical & aesthetic inputs in Film Direction, we add something very important in the Film Making Course, which is - hands on, practical training in all the technical departments of Filmmaking.

The aim is to help create a very unique kind of Film Director- one who has received an all round holistic training in all the technical aspects of film making - so that s/he can rightfully claim to be not just Film Directors but COMPLETE FILMMAKERS.

With this hands on, practical training in the technical departments of Film making, a prospective director becomes much more than a generalist, S/he becomes a specialist with an inside knowledge of each and every technical process of film making.
