I would like to know about making advertising and documentary films. Which are the basic courses required to do this? Also, could you please give me information on Cinematography?
For making advertising and documentary films, you can either learn film direction/cinematography on the job as an assistant to a director or a cinematographer or get a diploma in direction/cinematography from a reputed film institute. Either way, you have to be an assistant for a few years but in case one has a diploma, the number of years as an assistant could be lesser. You can do a diploma in direction/cinematography from film institutes all over India after your graduation. A few of the reputed institutions are: Film and Television Institute of India Law College Road, Pune 411 004. Asian Academy Of Film and Television, Noida Marwah Studios Complex, FC-14/15, Film City, Sector-16A NOIDA – 201301. Satyajit Ray Film and Television Institute E.M. Bypass Road, P.O. Garia, Calcutta-700 094.
