Now the 14th Academic Year


“The director must be a tyrant and a democrat, a dreamer and a realist, a rebel and a loyalist.”

The Film Direction Course provided by Cochin Media School gives an unrivaled perspective to film making, focussing on all its deviations including Adaptation, Characterisation, Script Writing, Directing, Cinematography, Editing and Sound design aspects of Filmmaking. The course is structured in such a way to exclude the hard student transition phase from the quad to the world of cinema, art and visual communication.

We comprehend the necessity of developing an individual style of storytelling and encourage students to follow their core sense of narratives, viewpoints and logic. The courses are made to make the film director’s task to envisage a way to interpret a story into a fully formed film, and then to realize this vision, much more seamless.

Millennial and post-millennial generation grows up in a virtual limbo where technical excellence is competing with the discernment between good and terrible evaluated in the means of the number of hits, virality, and media comments.

Cochin Media School bears off every learner from today's ironic reality and teaches them to accustom to a full-time-love-affair (unending exploration) with the art of cinema. and technical soundness.

Great filmmakers possess greater qualities such as ability to focus in life environments, utilize authorial skills, visual literacy, leadership and diplomacy skills, and last but not least, confidence to create under the extreme pressure of a movie production environment.

The capability and efficiency of a director depend on how he or she tells the story visually. The hard work and efforts to be worth and remembered can be daunting so the weeds are always thrown out of the industry and the talent and craft prevail to win.

With tailored programs in direction, defined by learning and understanding the artistic requirements of the media and technical necessities of the screen, and trends, students discover the language, craft and aesthetics of being a director. They master the techniques to integrate art, behavioral sciences and human psychology to deliver the coveted impactfulness on screen. These programs are designed to progress by enhancing the participant's ability to interpret the screenplay, to understand the codes, signs, grammar methods and tools of visual storytelling and to develop a writing flavor for the screen.
