During my screenplay writing class this weekend, our course director Mr Niyaz emphasized the distinctiveness of characters. It hit me – everyone is unique for a reason.


He also compared us to gods of our own stories, creating conflict, drama, and solutions. Now I get why blaming God for our problems won't help. It's like God, the ultimate screenplay writer, shaping us into better people through life's challenges.


In this big story of life, we all have a role. If there was nothing for us to do, God wouldn't have created us.

We at the YWTC Charitable Trust are proud to have launched ‘Lights Camera Inclusion’ in association with Film and Television Institute of India Pune (FTII), a program to train persons with disabilities in different fields of film making. A Special thanks to our #CSR partner @Fiserv for their continued support through their #FiservGivesBack program. Our CSR NGO Partner is United Way Mumbai.


Our online Screenplay Writing Course kicked off this weekend, and I'm not just an organizer but also a participant this time. The first weekend sessions have been a game-changer for me. I now realize how much more I could have improved our short film "When Opportunity Knocks the Recruiter's Door" ( https://youtu.be/ftEXzxhOjM4 ) with the knowledge gained.


Huge shoutout to our Course Director, Niyaz Sir, who's doing an outstanding job. It's amazing how, before this course, I had written the screenplay for our short film without formal training. With the insights from Mr Niyaz Muzawar, I'm excited to take it to the next level! He covered crucial topics like Premise, Character, Conflict, 3-Act Structure, Scene, Scene Design, and Writing a Scene. The homework assignments are taking me back to my school days, and I'm loving every moment of it. Learning new things keeps us young and active!

As a Certified Anti Money Laundering Specialist, I know about the concept of layering in money laundering. However, yesterday, I had the honor of delving into a different kind of layering – character development, thanks to Mr. Vijay Viswanathan , the Founder of Alchemy Academy of Performing Arts, which specializes in training in acting and drama.

Mr. Vijay generously conducted a workshop for our acting course participants, sharing his extensive expertise in the world of acting. His insights covered a wide range of elements, from the nuances of character development, including relationships, education, financial, political, and religious dimensions, to the importance of voice and facial exercises. It was an enlightening workshop that deepened our understanding of the art of acting.

Moreover, Mr. Vijay assigned tasks and provided valuable feedback on each performance, turning this experience into a remarkable learning journey. We're immensely grateful to Arun Lakshmi Sriram for making this invaluable connection possible, expanding our horizons in the realm of acting.

Thank you so much RRD GO Creative team and Amardeep Devadason for providing the venue and volunteering support !
