Noted film maker Subhash Ghai said that he had restructured the acting course in his Whistling Woods International (WWI) film institute and designed it into a two-and-a-half-year “Actor’s Studio” course.
Ghai said the curriculum will involve six months foundation course where the aspiring actors will undergo training in all aspects of filmmaking.
There will be a one-and-a-half-year specialised course in the art and technique and the last six months will include screen acting with cameras and grooming of the actor as a star. WWI will then try to get the students employment in the industry through its placement cell.
By the end of 2010, Mukta Arts, Ghai’s film production company, will encourage at least eight to ten projects in film and television, every year scripted, directed and produced by the WWI graduates featuring actors from the Institute.
