Objectives: The Academy’s main goal is to produce trained filmmakers with a commitment to excel and a desire for perfection. The world of digital cinema & infotainment is set to grow in quantum leaps making it imperative for the new media to combine artistry and technical skill to meet the expectations of a highly educated audience. Our objective is therefore to ensure that our students realize the meaning of team work, grasp the complex world of digital technology while addressing the global audiences of the 21st century!

Digital Cinema: It is common knowledge today in the film industry that the Prasad Studios and Laboratories along with EFX have become synonymous with high quality and the latest in Digital technology. The Prasad Group has six Processing labs, Shooting floors, Outdoor equipment services, several Sound Recording theatres with Dolby Digital and DTS systems and the latest in Digital Intermediate facilities. All this is spread over the six main Film Production centers of India. It will be our endeavour to ensure that each student gets to learn and practice on all our Digital facilities so that they can go out and contribute into the Film and TV industry with utmost confidence. What is going to be significant is the fact that the students here will be learning in a busy and working environment. They will have access to interact, in a structured manner, with the top film technicians and creative artistes who visit our Shooting floors, Recording Studios and the Laboratory on a daily basis. This will inspire the students while also allowing them to show their own works and discuss ways of making them better. What better opportunity can a Film and TV student have?
