Director R Balki turns lecturer

Whistling Woods International students get an opportunity to learn from an expert.

Renowned ad-film maker and director of movies like Paa and Cheeni Kum, R Balki (RB) took the master class at Whistling Woods International (WWI) for the academic year 2010-2011. He shared his experiences of the Jaago Re Campaign and the two films he has directed.
A panel of questions was set, based on the common inquisitiveness of the students. They were asked by none other than the founder of WWI, Subhash Ghai.

QUESTION HOUR
Why is there a social message in most of your ads?
RB: The social message is not added consciously by me, my aim is to express a thought through a powerful idea.

How do you select newcomers for your film?
RB: It is purely on an audition basis.

Magic mantra for a good film?
RB: Script, script and script. People do not come to see craft. Craft in a film is only to support the story metaphorically.
As a concluding note he said. “Enjoy yourself while you are here. The real world outside is not as enjoyable as this!”

– Ravi Ved
