I have embarked on a new path in media studies in a disciplined manner, I have identified my passion is in Visual Effects with the support and guidance from my faculty members.
I like the friendly atmosphere here and the fact that the teachers are approachable at all times. Their way of teaching is really interesting. We are enthused by the classes. My grades have gone up as our teachers give individual attention on each student. Every project is given equal importance and we are encouraged to strive for excellence.
At the end of my first year, I was confident enough to produce a documentary and submit the same to International Film Festival of Kerala 2017. Though I was going to learn the nuances of film making only in the higher semesters, my department supported me in my maiden endeavor in terms of creative and technical aspects. With the constant support of the media department, my second film “Drupada” won the prize for Best Editing in an intercollegiate media fest.
Our department concentrates on educating us in a creative manner and strengthening us technically.
