Is it possible to shoot 3 short-films in a single day with no prior planning?

Yes, our students can and they did it !!!

Every year we are updating ourselves to new technologies, changing the course curriculum and discovering new paths for incorporating innovative practical sessions for students like setting up an audio recording studio, creating electronic gadgets etc

3 short films has been made on a single day, each having 3 minutes duration, by 3 batch of students and it was a mere coincidence that the film has been screened in the academy at 3o’clock in evening on the same day.

DSC02516After the screening the project guide and senior faculty KS Ravi has told that the students had delivered maximum effort during the production and used their talents in creating the movie.

He expressed that 3 short-films which the students produced with limited time and resources has been exceptional with regard to its content and technical aspects.

Students, do expect to perform these type of innovative projects as part your 1 year Diploma in Sound Engineering and Sound Recording.

Looking forward for your thoughts as comments below.

A session with Binendra Menon

Last week we had an interesting session in the academy on the topic Cinematography. It was a great moment for us when Binendra Menon, an eminent cinematographer has agreed to be the Guide  for SEA’s  students for their one among  three projects, ie “Audio Post For Film” which the students of 1 year Diploma in Sound Engineering is supposed to complete during their second semester.

During the session Binendra Menon has provided details regarding sound perception, basic techniques used during Cinematography etc.

The world of movies is always fascinating for everyone and our students are no different from that.

The whole session was an interactive one as our student has raised many questions on basic filming techniques and how sound is effectively managed in movies.

During the end of session Binendra Menon has suggested some world class movies which the students can watch for learning better sound designing techniques and assured students to conduct another session to explain more details about the process of Film Making.

We, the Students, Staff and Management at Sound Engineering Academy once again express gratitude to Binendra Menon in conducting a session for our students and agreed to be with us as the project Guide, looking forward for future associations.
