I found collaborators in this college, students with substance, technical expertise and most importantly, passion A year into the country’s best Media school, I had a ton of like-minded and driven people around me. While college had lectures ranging from Film Studies to Public Relations, initially I hadn’t completely discovered my passion for filmmaking. It...
“…while screaming through the ups and downs of this roller coaster, I found voice” I vividly remember my first day of college. I was grouped together with a few students whose names were around mine on the attendance sheet and we were taken on a college tour. I was nervous, mostly because I came from...
“The work ethic remained, but we learned to laugh a little, to let go a little and to let others in a little” The constant refrain “These are the best years of your life” keeps surfacing as the days inch closer to leaving Pune forever. It certainly wasn’t easy, growing up never is, but it...
The feeling of actually strategising and executing a complete ad campaign was extremely motivating. One of the assignments we received at SCMC for the subject of Indian History – Post Independence, was to prepare an advertising campaign in case of a hypothetically imposed national emergency.

Be here in half...
This professor also didn’t say that we would get everything on a platter, but he briefed us about how the job can be interesting I am going to finish two years at SCMC. And here I would like to look back at my sweet memories, new encounters, clumsy cases and other times worth remembering. The...
And each day, I came back home and wondered “what am I doing with my life?” Symbiosis Centre for Media & Communication was, is and will always be a dream for people who want to do something great in media. Journalism, Film-making, Advertising or Public Relations, the centre has four specialisations to offer. I, being...
What intrigued me the most was the kind of diversity and flexibility the Film medium possessed, including the very fact that there were no concrete set of rules governing the art / science of filmmaking. I was desperate to get into a media college. Two years of engineering had worn me out. I was sure...
