Balaji, SIMC to introduce television writing course

Television production house Balaji Telefilms has teamed up with Symbiosis Institute of Mass Communications (SIMC) to introduce a television writing (fiction) course. The programme will be conducted between June 1 and July 31.

"Balaji Telefilms is coming up with a lot of serials and they are looking out for good talent. They have tied up with Symbiosis and would be training the students opting for this course. Following this, interviews would be conducted and selected candidates would be absorbed by Balaji," said Anupam Siddhartha, Deputy Director, SIMC.

On what really led to this tie-up, he said, "Balaji was scouting for talent and we felt we could facilitate this. Moreover, we felt that this brand association would work well for the institution and the production house."

The course would involve screenplay writing, scenic design, television production, dialogue writing for television and film appreciation The students opting for the course will have to mail their resume to the institute and write a short note in Hindi on why they wish to pursue the course. Siddhartha said, "The batch would comprise 25 to 30 students based on the final results." The last date for application is May 20, 2005.

The institute is also looking at a tie-up with television channels in the future, he said.
