Learning theoretical and technical media concepts, along with their applications

The more we went in depth, the more fascinating I found it. When we started learning camera angles and different photo and video shooting techniques, I was dazzled literally. Like everyone, I have watched several movies and have viewed many videos and photographs. But, never could I imagine the work done behind the scenes could be so extensive. Even the slightest mistake in detail could destroy the scene. From camera angles to mise-en scene, everything matters.

And the scenes themselves have to reflect on something, they have to be pigments of reality themselves. After every class, our theory teacher discusses current media events and shares his experience on the field with us. Media for me is like an art in which one can let his/her creativity flow. From newspapers to news channels, our teacher discusses every media aspect in a lively way. Just after one week I had to confess to myself that I was in love with the subject.
