Using his methods, I was able to bring my imagination and life experience into my scI have just completed my first screen play for a Tamil feature film, within two months of the Script Writing course by Mr. Sam Kumar. He explained the techniques of writing screen plays in a simple manner that can be understood even by an absolute beginner like myself.

Your short-film making course that I attended truly revealed the magnitude of effort that goes behind film-making – be it short or long. Considering that this was only a course spanning 2 months, you did very good justice to the process of learning, especially with those assignments and the actual short-film shooting. Thanks a lot to you for introducing me to the nuances of film-making! Thanks for being a wonderful teacher! All the very best for your future endeavors!
