Chitrabani: A Center for Media Arts

I had the pleasure of going to Chitrabani in Kolkata recently, a social communication center that has much to offer in media arts.

I was there to record voice-over narration for a video on life in Kolkata when I discovered what a gem it is. They offer classes in film making, animation, scriptwriting, radio broadcasting, puppetry and more. And have a photographic library of over 18,000 images of West Bengal.

Here we are making our way to the recording studio. I love the colors throughout the space, definitely create a mood.

Here is the director and sound engineer.

My view from the mic. The equipment was so sensitive I had to remain very still and stand in the same position for each take.

Wonderful blog! I am working on my application for the State Department and I am undecided about my track-would you or your husband be able to answer some questions I have? I couldn't find an email or something but I can provide mine if you'd like.

Thanks!
