Workshop @ FX School

On Wednesday 3 june 2009, FX School held a one day film making workshop. There were 21 participants from all walks of life - from college students to professionals from various fields - (we even had an Army Veteran among the ranks!!). The workshop kicked off at 10 in the morning and after a brief introduction all the participants were divided into groups. As soon as the groups were divided and Christened, our academic director CB Arunkumar handed out special FX school currency.

As soon as the groups came up with themes and story lines for their respective films, they put their plan into action with the help of our faculty who had to be paid per hour for their services. (this was to factoring budgeting into the filmmaking process)

While most of the movies featured the participants themselves there were a few that had volunteers from our institute and it came to light that our Managing - Director Abhyudaya Morarka is indeed quite a skilled actor.

The workshop continued until late evening and finally at the end of the day the movies were screened at our projector room and after that all the participants were given certificates for their participation by our Abhyudaya (or Abhyu, as he is popularly known)

The faculty was amazed at the hidden talent in the participants, as the films they ended up making were far superior to expectations.

The films will be uploaded here shortly, so WATCH THIS SPACE!!

CB ArunKumar, Academic Director speaks on

Teaching Digital Content Creation in a brave new way

Usually such changes cause unexpected fallouts in areas where experts generally think they already have the last word. In the media and entertainment Industry, the digital revolution of the last decade or so has been the cause of much upheaval in the established methods of doing things."

Of Leaves and Butterflies

A lot of people are curious about the leaves that were found fluttering about the expo. The rationale behind it, and what they were doing there.
Well, we here at FX School believe that we are the proverbial tree of knowledge, with our esteemed High Council forming the roots, the Academic Council being the trunk, faculty being the branches, and students being the leaves (and the fruits) of all the labour combined. It is these leaves who will eventually drop off into the world, and flourish on their own...

The FX School turned out with all its strength at the CGTE '09, Doing what it loves best... mingling with students and professionals and generally having a ball. What better place to meet industry friends, old and new than at CGTE.
How we love our Expo's!!
