  2. Track Trolley workshop/Crane workshop/HMI WORKSHOP- Will Not Be Meant For FTII-Coaching Students.
  3. After 5-months you will not be Shooting Direction students projects and will be attending the “Show reel making in the afternoon classes, which is meant for Regular one Year Students having Fee of Rs 1,50,000/-
  4. You will be receiving 5-months classroom coaching certificate for cinematography course while regular students will get one year “PG DIPLOMA” in Cinematography

Q.2      In case i wants to Join one year full time program of cinematography, would it be helpful for to prepare for FTII preparation also .

This program is geared for making you fully Independent cinematographer. If you join this course probability of qualify orientation and interview will be much more higher than other students as you will be geeting4 days in practical input. In case you fail to make it in FTII , you can start working as an assistant in Mumbai film Industry for which we promote our students through our Network of “Cinematography  Art Magazine” , which goes to 5000 important cinematographers / Directors of India.
