Film Workshop – Cutting the Rough Edges

26 Oct. The participants of the Documentary workshop seem to be seeing bright light on the other side of the tunnel. While many enjoyed shooting and other exercises, a couple of them found it quite demanding in terms of hard work, travelling in the hot sun, shooting in unfriendly conditions, getting necessary information, making appointments with common people-and-the-mighty, researching, etc.

Today all the groups completed their shooting for the documentary. All of them had a smile of contentment writ large on their faces. Some already got into editing mode. Others are wondering, how to glean through so muchof footage for a 5-8 minute movie! But that is fun; that is learning. Everybody has learnt to handle camera with a purpose, set up scenes, use light creatively, and now learning to make the movie on the table (editing)

We have a public screening of the documentary films made by the participants during the workshop and valedictory of the film workshop on Sunday at 11.00 a.m. (sharp). Mr Richard Castelino, the noted film maker of many a Tulu and Konkani film will be the chief guest.

Do come in; we want your presence. Make it a point to be present.
