Two Year PG Diploma Course In Screen Writing (Film,TV & Web Series)
Aimed at producing avant garde screenwriters well conversant with all forms of cinematic writing, the course employs a six-pronged approach which includes extensive writing, reading, film analysis, feedback and writing exercises, along with theoretical study. Over the course of two years, students write one Short Film, one TV Bible, one Feature Film Screenplay (Fiction), one Feature Film Step Outline (Fiction), one Feature Treatment (Adaptation/Biopic/Reality based fiction) individually; a Web Series Broad Story in a simulated Writer's Room and for diploma film along with a number of other writing exercises.
Detailed, step by step feedback from internal faculty as well as guest mentors on various drafts helps students refine their writing and develop a nuanced yet practical understanding of the craft. Hands on experience in digital film-making process, an introduction to film history and film appreciation, workshops on allied subjects (such as mythology, psychology, folklore etc.), and interactions with renowned academicians and industry professionals further enrich their understanding of cinematic storytelling, making them industry-ready.
The department has its own library of books related to screenplay writing and over 300 DVDs, in addition to the Institute’s vast collection. Each student is given a dedicated workstation equipped with all necessary software.
