Hello eveybody

Would anyone suggest me a good institute for a Direction course!
I am willing to join one in Andheri west (Lokhandwala). Any idea?
I also want to know if it is easy to join a director as an assistant direction there?

FTII - try only at the best.
do research well and good before you join any of them 'lesser known' institues.
government run institutes generally have more credibility - not that private run institutes dont... but you got to do your homework - good and proper.


sorry to burst your bubble - but nearly all aspiring film makers aged 17 and up - have / are making short films

Thanks Brishti,
I think you mean FTII in Pune, no? I heard that it is a good institute in India. Although I prefer to be in Mumbai capital for the course.

I don't know what to do!! I only know that I am completely lost

Brishti is right - India has plenty of these education shops - you will get a paper at the end of it but not much else . MICA in Gujarat is another good place or even any of the Universities (eg Jamia Milia) which have courses in Film direction - be warned competition is tough to get into them.


Bombay however may not be the best place for studying it though.

Thanks Rahul,

Maybe both of you are right about what you are saying. I know that:
Nearly all aspiring film makers aged 17 and up - have / are making short films ...
+ I will get a paper at the end of it but not much else

But, I am sorry, I don't agree with the end of the sentence...because that depends on many things and NOTHING IS IMPOSIBLE...If I believe in your point Rahul, then it is better for me to stay home and not to do anything...But no, we have to think in positive ways....If there is a closed door...there will be always an open one...but need to be hard working to find it!

Wishes and shukriya again for all your useful comments

I don't agree Bombay is not the best! infarct its the best cause afterworlds there is a much scope of internship!

@ Karina

There are Many institute like Whistling woods Zima and others but they actually take huge money according to what they teach, Kifa what i came to know 40 Hollywood profesionalist will come and teach, infarct when my friend went for enquirer he meant one Hollywood Actor, and they sounded very interesting!

I agree with you Rohit.

Whistling woods only offer courses of 1-2 years, and that's a long time.
KIFA offers 2 months and it seems not enough to learn. But I found that their programme schedule is very interesting.

I want to share with you the thing that delighted my day. I participated in RAB NI BANA DI JODI competition and the video was chosen as the winner1 !

http://www.yashrajfilms.com/Pages/8e...bfcf7/dpc.html

This Video was Selected by Shah Rukh Khan for the best Dance contest on Rab ne Bana Di Jodi

Enjoy and wishes

well done karina - congratualtions!

While directing a movie can lead to a shiny Oscar, it also means taking on a lot of responsibility. Simply put, a director is responsible for a film's overall vision. He has final responsibility for the actors, the shots, the script, the props, the editing and much more [source: Full Sail].

Responsibilities involved with directing include:

* working with the movie producer to cast the actors
* organizing and selecting shooting locations
* interpreting the script -- and in some cases, writing or selecting it
* approving sets, costumes, choreography and music
* giving actors direction while conducting rehearsals and shooting the film
* directing the work of the crew during shooting
* working with cinematographers on shot composition
* working with editors on creating a rough cut and final film
and you want to do all this in a 6 month crash course?
good luck!

Thanks a lot Brishti,

Yes, direction is a huge responsibility and I am as huge as that responsibility!!

6 months is sufficiently long for preparing the individual for the professional work in the chosen field. maybe it is not enough to learn perfectly everything in the field. But practice and training after receiving the required education would help you to achieve your goals.

but dont you think someone with a 3-year degree would have an edge over getting the breaks in training and practice ?
if 6 months is enough to learn it all - then all the major film institutes from siberia to saskatchewan [metaphor] must be... rip offs!

i'm not dissuading you karina - that is not my intent.
film making is a serious studied subject... as with all specialisation courses.
no short cuts - no quick fixes.

hard work / discipline / knowledge / practice / training are given granted.
i think anybody in any field follows that dictum, no?


anyway - you know best - and the best of wishes to you

Dear Brishti,

Don't worry about me as you don't know me and even you don't know if I have or I dont have a knowledge about the field! And yes, I have an experience and also years of studies. So nothing to worry about!
If ( 3-year degree would have an edge over getting the breaks in training and practice ) than that's perfect!!! I have 6 years degree of study and practice. It's not that bad at all

He who goes after it, gets it.

so why do a 6 month stint if you already have a 6 year degree?
i am confused
i was under the impression it was a specialised film course you were interested in [either graduation or masters] - which is why my reasoning with a 6 mth crash course.

i have no doubt you know what you're doing.
spain is one of the hub's of world cinema - more my confounded confusion!
bollywood is more attractive is it?

i'll leave it here!
here's wishing you an oscar... sincerely
