This course at the ZEFT film college in Chennai combines the curricula for both Screenwriting and Film Direction. The course imparts knowledge to improve the creative, conceptual, technical and organizational skills in this field.
Direction deals with every aspect of film making, from screenwriting to film publicity. The Direction and Screenwriting course is a combination of theory and practical classes that will make the students create movies independently on completion of the course.
Students in Film Direction are taught independent film production and an insight into the art of makeup, costumes, and design of the film sets. They will also be taught theoretical aspects of cinema from around the world.
Intensive script writing exercises are directed towards teaching the students to find the appropriate balance between the spoken words and unspoken feelings of the image on the screen and the contribution of the ambient sounds.
The students will spend a considerable amount of time with actors and directors (both film and theatre) to understand how physical action and the spoken dialog in combination with the camera result in the emotions that we see in the cinema.
