Documentary making workshops at Pondicherry University – 2013
Making a documentary film is by no means an easy feat. And it goes without saying that for beginners in film-making, proper training and guidance is very important. Taking this objective forward, Department of Electronic Media and Mass Communication, Pondicherry University conducted a series of workshops on documentary film-making for the students. The workshop was facilitated by experts in various fields, like Ajay Raina, Pankaj Rishi Kumar, and Suresh Rajamani.
