FilmIt Workshop by INTACH

Manu Kalra
5/08/2017, New Delhi

FilmIt is a multi-cultural project that aims to develop childrens minds by giving them an opportunity to showcase their talent through movies. INTACH aims at preserving and restoring heritage in every form, tangible or intangible. 
 Every year we get a chance to be a part of the workshops organised by INTACH. Students from classes 6-9 are engaged in this activity. Two workshops are conducted every time- Content and Technical.
For the Content workshop on 28th  July 2017, three students from class 7 accompanied me. The keynote speaker of the workshop was Mr. Feisal Alkazi. He is a renowned theatre person and a great author. 
After having a fruitful brainstorming session with him, the following points should be kept in mind before the actual implementation:

  • The Title should not be very lengthy and be appropriate to the theme of the movie
  •  The content should be catchy and not monotonous
  • The flow of the movie should be smooth
  • Strictly adhere to the timeline
  • The shots of the movie should be captured cleverly and correctly
  • Lastly, the movie should be able to capture the audiences attention and leave an everlasting impression

Three students of class 9 went with me for the Technical Workshop on 4th August 2017. This workshop was conducted by the technical experts Mr.Ankit Pogula and Ms Shreya Kakria. Both of them are renowned award winning filmmakers of the Tuning Fork Films.
It was a very enriching experience as the students were told how to create films. Correct and efficient planning and research is the recipe for a perfect movie. Students were even taught about the different camera angles and shots and how to put them in action. Various tips were shared on how to stabilize a camera while filming a movie. Visuals, voiceovers, dialogues and music play a very crucial role when editing a movie using the various softwares.
This workshop was an entertaining and a great learning experience. It was useful in igniting the passion in our young aspiring film makers. We hope to make wonderful films this year as well and put to use all that we have learnt.
