Zee Interactive Learning Systems Limited (ZILS), an educational arm of Zee Network, has announced the introduction of a new training course in the field of Media Arts. The training targets aspirants looking at a career in films and television through ZIMA - Zee Institute of Media Arts.
Announcing the proposition, AK Khetan (CEO, ZILS) states, "ZILS is entering this segment based on the strength of ZILS' expertise in training and education and Zee Network in media and entertainment fields. The potential growth that the entertainment sector is witnessing and the dearth of professionals have lead to a huge demand for training and education in this domain, with special emphasis on films and television. And that's where ZILS steps in."
He adds, "The combined strengths of ZILS, an established player for over a decade in education and training and ZEE Network, a media conglomerate in the domain of TV/film entertainment, provide a valuable proposition to the student enrolled at ZIMA."
Zee Institute of Media Arts is being designed to provide quality education in the field of Media Arts. It will be a confluence of Arts and Technical skills with basic elements constituting the various courses being offered, namely direction, cinematography, acting, writing, production, sound, editing, computer graphics and a variety of courses related to entertainment. These courses will be conducted at the ZIMA centre in Mumbai that is equipped with advanced learning systems i.e. projection systems, media archive, outdoor shooting facilities, equipments and software for computer graphics, animation and special effects. The centre is set to open shortly at Lokhandwala, Andheri (W) which is the hub of entertainment Industry in Mumbai.
