Another important factor that sets this course apart from the others is that here the participants will get to know about the nuances of film making as well as acting from a successful practicing film maker owed to which the knowledge imparted will not be “bookish” but practical enough. In this training program, participants with a natural flair for acting will be taught various traits of being a good actor which will include everything right from voice modulation to body language to general discipline on the sets.
Participants enrolling for the film production workshop will not only benefit from the experiences of a seasoned film maker but will also get hands on experience as the organizers even plan to make a short film during the course of the workshop.
