Seamedu School of Pro-Expressionism has three campuses located in Pune, Bangalore and Mumbai – all great student cities – and all hubs for the arts and media. We are a media school that allows for greater interaction between different disciplines. Our students love our motto of ‘learning by doing’ and benefit greatly from the concentration of practical work as opposed to simply theory.
Here is what some of them have to say!
- Department of Broadcast Journalism
“Seamedu has an active culture. We get to blend in and actually see how the media industry works. The infrastructure offered by Seamedu ensures that we stay up to date with new developments and technologies in the industry. Our faculty members are all currently working in the industry so we get to experience the industry first hand through them. We also have the chance to take up various internships making possible to get work experience while still studying.”
Here’s a student’s sister explaining why she thinks Seamedu is the best choice for journalism:
- Department of Film
“The filmmaking course taught me everything I needed to know right from preproduction, production to postproduction. The course gradually took us from the basics of filmmaking to advanced techniques. Our faculty was diverse, coming from as far as the New York School of Cinema and Australia. It has taken me from being a novice without any actual knowledge of filmmaking to a point where I am now making my own short films. I am extremely grateful to Seamedu as their support has continued even after I have completed the course whether it is in terms of advice or borrowing the equipment I need.”

Here’s why Seamedu is the premier choice for international students, in Gabriel’s words:
- Department of Sound Engineering
“I am 6 months in to the Diploma of Sound Engineering Course at Seamedu and it has been a seamless experience. One of the main reasons for choosing this college was because of the certifications they provide. Also, the progress you make. You start off as a student, become semi-professional in just 6 months and start getting commercial bookings. You then progress on to advanced mixing and mastering techniques. The teachers here ensure that you have ample time to hone your skills once you have learnt the various techniques and reach a fully professional level by the end of the course. The opportunities provided by the college have helped me a lot. I would like to thank Seamedu for everything they have given me so far and I know I can expect a lot more.”

Here’s Shubhanand Bhagwat sharing his experience:
- Department of Photography
“Being at Seamedu has been a life changing experience for me. Before I joined the course, I didn’t know how an SLR camera worked or how to handle it. Seamedu has given me exposure to different kinds of photography like travel photography, wildlife photography, fashion photography and setup photography. We have workshops and get live experience in commercial photography projects during the course. They tailor our experiences to our interests. We have some of the best infrastructure and facilities. I thank Seamedu for everything they have done for me.”

Watch Shraddha talk about her experience at Seamedu:
- Department of VFX and Game Art
“I quit my job at an IT company as I wanted to get into making VFX and Animation for film and television. Seamedu was highly recommended by a friend and I decided to give it a try. This year has been a really great experience from me so far. It has opened up new perspectives. Learning about production designing, using a Chroma studio and even actually working on a production for a short film has been amazing. I would definitely recommend Seamedu.”
– Dilip Nayak
Here’s what our Animation student Sharvari has to say about the institute:
- Department of Game and Mobile Software Development
“I’ve always wanted to be a game developer. Ever since I was a kid, I wanted to make games and share them with the world. This course offers me exactly that opportunity. What appealed to me about this course is unlike other courses out there, this course is practically oriented, so the topics that you learn in the morning, you get to try out the very same day. It’s a great hands-on experience. The faculty themselves have previously worked in the games industry so everything they teach us is relevant to the industry making sure we are ready to hit the ground running as soon as we graduate from the course. I would definitely recommend this course due to its uniqueness and if you want to become a game developer, this is the right way to go about it.”
