Mumbai: Well-known Bollywood filmmaker Ramesh Sippy is all set to embark on a new venture in the field of education with Ramesh Sippy Academy Of Cinema and Entertainment.
Sippy is introducing a graduation programe at Mumbai University in association with Garware Institute in five different streams — BA in Film Art (three years), BSc in Film Technology and Production (three years), BSc in Screenwriting (three years), BSc in Animation (three years) and BSc in VFX (three years).
He said that a career in entertainment was shunned by society for the longest time, but today it’s the most-sought after. It is the right time and people are pursuing it as there are possibilities in so many fields including short films, documentaries, and web series apart from basic filmmaking.
Inoredr to introduce the programme in the University, he first of all had few meetings and sessions with the Vice Chancellor Sanjay Deshmukh and later they decided to go ahead. But the curriculum of the courses is in the verge of finalization. He said that the best and experienced persons from the industry would be invited for giving lecture during the academic sessions.
