I'm a student of Standard 12th, I cleared my examinations in October. I'm interested in going into sound and/or special effects. I want to know what is the minimum requirement for going into such fields, and which colleges in Mumbai and India allow you to study these subjects. I would also appreciate if you could give me some good information about the colleges in the US and Canada and regarding admission procedures and requirements. I'm very keen on learning these things and I would really appreciate if you could help me out.
