What next on completion?

A production plan is made for the film shoot of every student. The plan assigns specific crew roles (Asst Director, Asst. Camera person, Sound Engineer, Set Designer etc.) to each student for each film. These crew roles are rotated among students for every film. That way, no student performs the same role twice. The aim is to give students a different perspective of filmmaking with each film. Each student prepares for and perform his/her crew role on the day of the shooting. This in consultation with director and the script of the film. The student director will also be the cinematographer. The camera used in the course is a Panasonic HVX200. The recording media is P2 Card/Flash drives.

Film shoots are usually on weekends. Attendance of shoots is mandatory. This is because a film shoot is where the practical learning in filmmaking happens. Shoots are timed and should not exceed 8 hours per film. Each student will shoot his/her film on a scheduled day.

Each student will edit his/her film using Final Cut Pro and set music using using loops from Logic Pro on a Mac. For more info, visit our studio.
