Film and Video Design Admission Process, Top Colleges and Eligibility

Courses in Film and Video Design put emphasis on strong narrative content. To communicate using the Film and Video media, one needs to use equipment like film and video cameras and editing systems. Moreover, conceptual processes in addressing the communication needs of the social and commercial sectors should also be rigorously followed. Of the many Film and Video design courses, the one at MITID emphasizes on the holistic learning.
Topics like Photography, Instructional Films Making, Videography, Film Language / Film Theory, Cinematography, Editing, Script Writing, Production Design, etc., develop a very strong conceptual understanding of all important aspects of Film and Video Design. Apart from the regular inputs in film making, modules (courses) like Basic Documentary Films, Fictional Film, Music Video, Promotional Films, Advertisement Films, Multi-camera (fiction & live event), Instructional Films and exploratory Documentary develop a very strong conceptual understanding of all important aspects of Film and Video Design.
After undergoing the comprehensive FVD course, the students find their calling in various aspects of film making as writer, directors, cinematographer, editor, VFX designer, art director, etc. While many of the FVD students have made a rewarding career as a freelance film-maker, some of them are also working in production houses and companies like BookMyShow, Deollite, Equinox films, Glitch films, Supari films, Jet Airways, etc.
The films made by FVD students are doing great in various student film festivals being organized across the country like NSFA, Clapsticks, SRFTI student film festival and Pune University film festival, etc. These films are also achieving amazing viewership at the MITID films channel on YouTube, thus encouraging future students to desire greater heights. FVD department is also proud of its minor role in changing the gender bias prevalent in the film industry. Most of the best student awardees of the department are female students who are doing great work as professional filmmakers.
