Mr. Anant Rai, Director of the National and International award winning short film ‘Mai Tamanna’ and RJ Abhi, Programming Head of Indo- American Radio station ‘Radio Zindagi’ attended the workshop as guests experts.
Mr. Prabhat discussed about the practical aspects of script writing for films. The topics covered were
1. Idea framing
2. Story plotting
7. Location description in scripting
Showing some examples of screenplay, he described the final draft for script writing of a film. He discussed the role of Psychological Analysis in a good script. During the course of the workshop, he instructed the students to write script of a self created story and then finalized some among them for drafting in the proper format to be discussed. The activities in the workshop motivated the students for scripting with insight and creativity. a motivation like this is expected by the students on regular basis as this fascinated them to a large extent.
The learning outcome is such that the students have reactivated their cells of writing. This is what was confessed by the students just after the workshop itself. The faculty was thoroughly thanked for the escalating experience.
