The broadest and the most varied creative opportunity in mass media are the films. The Indian film industry produces the largest number of films in the world. India produces almost 900 1000 films every year and most of the films come from Bollywood i.e. from Mumbai (Hindi) and even large numbers of films are produced in regional mostly from south India and Bengal.
It is a blend of creativity and technicality. Films are not only for entertainment and information but also for communication. Films have developed in the international market as universal art form that transcends cultural differences. Feature films, documents, news reels, promotional films, TV commercials, music videos. All these are included in film making.
A film maker is like a captain of a ship who looks at all the aspects of film making. A real film maker is one who finds muted emotions more interesting and challenging and who can translate not only his own experience but also other peoples experience into a piece of work which brings them to tears, ignite their passion and can also draw laughter.
There are several universities that offer training in these areas. The pioneer institute in this line is FTII, Pune i.e. film and television institute of India, and in Tamil Nadu we have Film and Television institute of Tamil Nadu , Chennai
The best way to begin in this field is to join any of the recognised film institutes and after that by working in production department of a film company. So that you may get a lot to learn by assisting the director and this way through becoming a director or a producer. This is a highly competitive field where one has to put maximum effort to remain at the same place from where he started. One can get jobs in production companies, film studio, processing laboratories and government departments of films etc.
