Pune: Film and Television Institute of India (FTII) has announced a three-week basic course in Digital Video Editing at its Pune campus.
The course aims at imparting a fundamental understanding of the digital Video Editing set-up, its operations, concepts and principles as well as professional practices. It will be particularly useful for those already working or deciding on a career with television channels or production houses.
The course will begin on October 9 and close on November 2.
The last date for submitting applications for it is September 25, while the minimum educational eligibility is Std 12 (HSC). Only 10 students will be admitted to the course.
“By the end of the course, the participant would have learned the operations of a Digital Video Editing set-up and would be able to edit Film/ TV Programmes. The course content is attuned to the requirements of a growing demand for trained editors. The traditional linear editing in film and television is a slow and expensive process. The alternative is Digital Video Editing, which is currently practised worldwide and is fast,” Bhupendra Kainthola, Director FTII Pune said.
The course is planned under Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY), the flagship scheme of the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE).
