World Design University Announces Unique Film Course Led by Farrukh Naqi Azmi
The World University of Design is introducing a 6-month Certificate Program in Filmmaking in its 2022 academic session. The program will be led by a veteran trainer for aspiring actors, Mr. Farrukh Naqi Azmi, and will start from March 2022 .
The program aims to provide in-depth training to applicants for a career in the Bollywood Hindi film industry and has a limited number of 25 places which will be allocated based on application and personal interview. Divided into 2 divisions of 3 months each, contestants will first undergo intensive training in the first semester and then feature in a full-scale feature film which will then be used to launch them as actors. The film will be produced and distributed by WUD itself. This is a unique offering that sets this course above other shorter courses.
The 6-month acting course is designed in such a way that students instill a sense of confidence and act effortlessly in front of the camera, gain a good command of spoken language with flawless dialogue delivery; mastering facial expressions, developing good body language and flexibility; develop the essential skills of observation, imagination, memory of the senses and emotions; ability to improvise; master movement with special emphasis on dance skills to improvise; and the fundamentals of action choreography.

Peppered to handle his new role at World University of Design, Mr. Farrukh Naqi Azmi said, “I have been training aspiring actors for over 3 decades now in India as well as overseas, but each time, any the experience feels new to me. Every place has its own dialects, vocal formations, and a certain way of life that needs to be assessed before the grooming, diction, and all the technique takes shape. So here I am, eager and waiting to begin the acting trip for new kids!”
While advancing its footsteps to provide a bright future for its students, the university will ensure that every student gets plenty of auditions in Mumbai. WUD not only arranges for its students to be equipped with necessary skills like makeup and video editing, but also provides them with prospects to produce their own short films or music videos if they wish.
