"A film is never really good unless the camera is an eye in the head of the poet" - Orson Welles
Film Direction needs an in-depth understanding of screen writing, acting, cinematography, editing, sound recording and design. The story will come to life only when the filmmaker can not only visualize it but also execute it and then finally sell it. The movement of images, the play of lights, the stories attached to experience the emotions depicted and every other little detail which goes into film making, constitutes an art.
Online film direction course is a six month part-time program with the fundamentals and takes students through the finer nuances of film making.
This program takes budding film makers right from the idea stage of the story to the time it becomes a show reel.
