Two-day Radio Workshop conducted in DME Media School
Athar Saeed hones students’ skills for producing features
Polishing the skill of effective speech with proper diction, writing an impressive script for ears, producing a feature by recording this script and enriching the product with music and sound effect – this gigantic task was taken up successfully during two days (October 10 and 11) of hectic activities at 3 venues and 3 sub venues on the campus of Delhi Metropolitan Education (DME).
This wholesome exercise was part of Radio Production Workshop organised by DME Media School for Third Semester students of BA JMC. The workshop was conducted by Mr Athar Saeed, noted news reader and dubbing artist, who has been associated with both radio and television industries for over two decades.
Radio Production Workshop, as conceived by Dr Susmita Bala, Head, DME Media School, opened in the newly built Seminar Hall in the presence of faculty members and more than hundred students. Ms Sukriti Arora, Assistant Professor, welcomed the resource person of the workshop. Dr Ambrish Saxena, Dean, DME Media School, felicitated Mr Saeed and underlined the significance of the workshop.
Mr Athat Saeed began the session in an interactive fashion by asking the students about pronunciations of several commonly spoken words of the Hindi language. The students having given various incorrect answers were surprised to learn the nuances of correct speech and diction. They participated enthusiastically and showed visible improvement as the session continued.
The workshop resumed post lunch with the next agenda of preparing a radio feature program. Students working in pairs discussed their topics and the treatment of those topics with Mr Saeed who offered his valuable guidance to all. The students were given the home assignment of writing the script for the next day production.
On the next morning, students gathered again in the Seminar Hall and discussed their scripts with their respective faculty members teaching the subject – Ms Sukriti Arora, Ms Chhavi Bakaria and Ms Shruti Pandey. Each script was vetted by Mr Saeed who suggested improvement in writing and diction before its final recording.
The recording and post production was looked after by Mr Ritwik Ghosh, Assistant Professor. Other faculty members Mr Sumantra Das, Ms Krishna Pandey and Mr Sachin Nair were also seen guiding the students in their enterprise.
The recordings took place in Studio 62 and first floor Radio Studio. Students were seen recording at other locations as well including closet space between the studio and PCR and even in the shoe rack space.
