What better way to kill time than to do a short summer workshop? The Graduation Ceremony was for the AISFM Summer Programmes that were conducted earlier this month; a 2-Week Photography Workshop and a 2-Week Acting Workshop.

Famous actor V. Nagineedu, who won the Nandi Award for Best Villain for his role in Maryada Ramanna, was the Chief Guest for the event. Interacting with the enthusiastic students at the event he said, “Always take negative feedback with a positive attitude and make your passion your profession with hard work.” He reminisced that he became an actor due to his passion for acting after he saw Akkineni Nageswara Rao in Pullarangadu. He added that acting is an inborn talent and students should understand and recognize themselves and “institutes like AISFM will polish it.”

Before handing over the certificates to all the students, he advised them to conduct a SWOT analysis on themselves and identify their own strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats; and work on them to achieve their desired goal. Earlier on during the event, two plays were enacted by the acting workshop students whereas selected photos taken by the photography workshop students were shown.

Under the guidance of Dr. Rammohan Holagundi, the acting course took students through a program of international-standard acting technique training for both on- and off-camera, apart from basics of acting, imitation exercises, mime exercises to develop the finer details of body language, dance, play rehearsals and more.
