Lights, camera, action! A first for a city school

Staff Reporter

Ryan International School gets its own studio



Reel time:Experts teach students the art of film-making at Ryan International School, Kundalahalli.

Bangalore: Lights, camera, action!” These words were not heard at a film shoot but at Ryan International School, Kundalahalli, on Friday. The students were welcomed to the world of movie-making thus at the inauguration of a new studio, the first in a Bangalore school.

Students will be taught audio and video recordings, colour mixing, framing and editing techniques. The studio, which took shape in association with ICEPLEX (Interactive Community Education Portal Leading Entire X-gen), a team from Mumbai, will offer film production as well as news presentation and production courses.

Eager to learn

Raghav B. Reddy, a Class 8 student, is thrilled. “Last year, I attended a weeklong course on film production and we discussed the perfect shot we had always dreamt of and how we would execute it,” he said. His friend, M.S. Nandeep, was in a team that produced a public service advertisement. “We were a group of five and were to shoot a skit. It had the characters of parents in it and we had to manage the camera. We were so confused; the mother in the skit delivered the dialogues of the father. It was fun and funny,” he said.

Augustine F. Pinto, chairperson of the Ryan Group of Institutions, inaugurated the studio along with guests from various fields. “In the changing media scenario in India, we are confident of giving our students a head start in all its related fields. It is important to develop skill-based programmes at school-level,” he said.

Shibani Sharma, head (Content Development), ICEPLEX, said they have two fully functional studios in Ryan Schools in Mumbai. The one at Malad is in the Limca Book of Records for being the first-of-its-kind studio in a school. Students will be provided hands-on training in film production and news presentation and production, she added.
