Peter Wiant, a corporate film maker from the US visited the Arena Chandigarh Campus on 2 December 2013. He had been also holding a 48 hours movie contest in the US. He premiered the short movie “Gandhi at the Bat” (which has only been showcased on the Goa Film Fest before). He also showcased “A person known to me” in which he was also part of the cast. During this he explained the issues and how the production team handled their artists leading to a wonderful result.
He also showed commercial movies made by Wiant Productions for different corporate and branding clients. He explained the background of the movie and how they handled the situations and found creative solutions to each challenge.
He also told about the use of research in movie making. Till you are able to do good research, the authenticity of the movie will seem questionable. He advised making movies even while on research since such shots may become the base of ideas for shots. Even talking to local people can give you characters and design ideas. He dwelt on the use of sound in movies and how they providing richness to the subject and treatment.
The students came out excited to make their next attempt at movies once again with renewed vigour.
The team is bolstered by the arrival of its latest faculty, Houssem Ben Amor, an expert Game Designer and ardent 3D Modeler from Tunisia.
The team is committed to take this batch to a new level.
The 2013 Batch for Bachelors in Animation and VFX has started with quite a few enthusiastic students. Like always the batch was full from th
e first day itself. Soon the students got involved in many creative activities and began getting into the right attitude for their studies. As always this initial period is the key to unlocking the student’s potential and creating or reinforcing their passion for the field of design and animation. Once they go through the entire range of activities, most of them would have picked new hobbies and pursuits and would be clearer on their possible paths.
