Presenting 'Blink' a film made by Akhil Lotlikar, one of the students from the first batch of Discover Cinema Programme. The programme launched by the Indian Film Institute to empower media, theatre, performing and visual arts students educating them in the craft of film making, has already begun to produce results.
Talking about the programme, Akhil Lotlikar says," I was inspired by a thought which resurfaced as I was cycling one evening, everyone perceives a certain situation in their own unique way. The start of something new seems very exciting but often people lose interest once they reach the midpoint of the journey, but if we just change the way we perceive the situation our whole perspective towards it can change for the better, by thinking that new opportunities await for us at every turn and obstacle we face, hence the quote ends with "but it's new dawn".
Discover cinema has proved to be a course which really focuses on the essentials of film making and is very successful in instilling ideas on how to convey a good story visually. Building up the fundamentals is a key aspect to mastering anything and discover cinema really gives importance and attention in the key fundamentals of film making."
As part of the course, several students have come up with remarkable screenplays, pictures, and films.
