Batch of 2016 | PGD Film TV and Digital Video Production
The Film, Television and Digital Video Production course at Xavier Institute of Communication is one of the best courses in the field currently. In the duration of ten months, this course covers Cinematography, Direction, Production, Script Writing and Television and Film studies. Starting from the history of cinema, to the latest happenings in the field, are dealt with in detail. With five months of in class discussions, the basics are taught, after which, a series of film projects help the students implement all that they have learnt and understand in the field. The projects are divided into Non-fiction film (documentary), Short Fiction film, and Multi Camera project (for television). The final major project for the course is a Social documentary which ensures humanism in the students before the completion of the course. The Faculty includes eminent film industry members, mostly FTII alumni, who have the required knowledge and experience to guide the students through the development process. Various workshops are held with guest lecturers to discuss the current work and their effects. XIC has a fully equipped studio, Satyajit Ray Studio in the main Xavier College campus. The in class projector facilitates for easy viewing of films and the extra space is perfect for the discussions and holding practice shoots in college. There are various equipments (lights, cameras, props) ready for use in class, and if required extra equipment is hired by the college to help students get the right kind of exposure. The course is perfect for someone looking for a kick start in the career of films; but it must not be forgotten that this is a very demanding course and will need a 24x7 attention for the whole duration to excel in the field thereafter.

It's not often that you find yourself working with people who have like-minded interests, and even similar life experiences. In retrospect, the only common interest we ever shared among us classmates was the love for advertising. But that was more than enough to keep us glued and interested in what we were doing. And there certainly is a difference when you are bought by industry professionals who are taking time off of their busy schedules to teach a bunch of nobodies like us. If nothing else, they bring a lot more legitimacy to what they are saying in class, as we feel that like they are talking from day-to-day experiences and not from things they read out of textbooks.

This college is true to what it stands for. All faculties are Advertising professionals who have excelled in their field and come down especially (pre or post office hrs) to share their bit of first-hand knowledge. Every department of advertisement and marketing is covered, which makes it all the easier for students to choose their field of excellence later during the year. Assignments are ALWAYS in a group which makes one industry ready and the campus is fully equipped. From the staff, Admin to the college heads, everyone's extremely helpful. The canteen is one of the best in Bombay. One can never feel out of place in this cosmopolitan of an atmosphere. That's the irony.

Xavier's a strict institute in terms of discipline and punctuality but at he same time it is a place which opens horizons for it's students. This is a place which has given this country many RJ's, TV and film Actors who are doing reasonably well in their lives and are utilizing the teachings of this college at the best! So, if you also want to be one of them join it and take the league forward. All the Best!
