St. Xavier's College, Ranchi (Autonomous) has been running Mass Communication and Video Production department with an aim to prepare tomorrow's filmmakers and journalists. Technology is ever on the upswing and the world, which has already turned into a global village, is witnessing new and fast changes every day, in which instruments of mass communication are playing vital role.

The demand for the undergraduate course is high and as the department has limited seats, we fail to accommodate many youths. Thus, many aspiring filmmakers, who otherwise could be playing important role in shaping the society had they been provided with proper training with facility, fail to get the required skills.

It is due to this reason that the college has decided to run basic course on film making for people who want to learn the art of film making. Video cameras today are becoming common equipments for households and many households are having them. All that they need is the basic training on pre-production production and post production, so that they no longer have to depend on professionals to prepare films (documentary, doco-feature, short films etc) - may be of travel, site-seeing and important social and family occasions.
