About the Event

“The Sparkplug” – A 3-hour session to get you started with your filmmaking journey.

Similar to how a spark plug provides the spark to ignite your vehicle’s engine, this workshop will kindle the flame in your film-making journey.

There are millions of people who want to become the next Steven Spielberg / Mani Ratnam / Rajamouli, but do you know what it really takes to become like them?

When millions of talented individuals and countless films join the film industry every year, why do still only a handful of films/film makers stay with us? What is the secret formula they follow? What is the secret ingredient they use to make such memorable films?


If you are an aspiring actor/filmmaker/cinematographer/writer/editor or interested in any other aspect of film-making, then please join this 3-hour session where Vihaan, a national level award winning filmmaker, shares his invaluable experience about the right way to approach film making.

What is the session about?

To achieve mastery in any field, KSAs (Knowledge, Skills and Attitudes) to solve problems are the primary aspects. While in our regular film making workshops we teach you (knowledge and skills) the basics of how to make films, in this session, we will focus on how to approach the process of filmmaking (attitude) in the best way possible.

Many people try to get started with filmmaking without even having a proper idea of how to go about it. Though it’s not impossible to become a successful filmmaker that way, it’s almost as difficult as driving in a dark alley with your car’s headlights off.

Who is this session for?

Irrespective of what profession you are in:

If becoming an actor/filmmaker is your passion

If you are just a beginner who has no idea about how acting or film making works

If the humongous information available on the internet scares you,

If you prefer having a experienced mentor guide you rather than a YouTube video

If you are confused or clueless about how to get started

then this session is for you.
