Do you have a basic story idea and want to structure it effectively?

Writing a good script is deceptively simple. It’s the chiselled story arc that sustains through scenes and sequences, which is the most sought-after commodity. If you know how to approach character development and create a compelling plotline that resonates with the viewers, half the battle is won. The dedicated program grooms the students through structured training with guided mentorship.

If you love to act out an emotion and perform, you are spot on!
If you have talent and sensibility to get into a character, here is your chance to hone your skill and take your first step into the world of acting. As acting is all about responding to the stimuli – imaginary as well as lived or experienced, actors use their body and voice as instruments and draw from their memory and creative imagination.
The program is for someone who is really passionate about acting. The course breaks down the complex acting methods at length and in-depth, for a nuanced understanding of the discipline.

  • Film Production

It’s all about planning and executing a project in a systematic and structured way.
