One Year PG Certificate Course In Feature Film Screenplay Writing
This is the only PG Certificate course in Film wing of one year duration. It aims at producing regional, national as well as international screenwriters with an ability to cinematically render diverse subject matters through the art & craft of screen writing. Our writing intensive approach draws the best from the American, Indian, and European models to inculcate a sound understanding of the craft of dramatic writing as well as audio-visual design, with an emphasis on narrative fiction.
In the duration of the course, the students write one feature length screenplay, one treatment for feature film, one 7-10 min. short film screenplay, three one-page feature concept notes and one 26-episode TV-bible to earn the certificate of completion. Students start the course with two feature film story ideas which are then developed into Treatments (detailed Story Outlines) through a series of submissions with feedback at each step, from faculty as well as guest mentors. Students select one of the treatments to develop into a screenplay, under the guidance and feedback of mentors.
Inputs are given in theory of dramatic writing, feature and television writing as well as basics of film making, along with allied areas such as psychology, folklore, mythology, etc. Renowned academicians and professionals interact with the students and discuss their work on a regular basis.
