Hello readers, I am Shivani Poddar. I am pursuing Digital marketing and advertising (DADM 2nd Semester)  from Arena Animation, Park Street.

This is my first blog.In this blog i would like to narrate my experience from not knowing anyone in the institute to making so many friends in my very first week of the second semester.

In 2nd Semester it was my first day with Somnath Sir  he is called “The Singham” of the institute. I was scared but the way he explained me everything was very supportive and  motivating. After the syllabus discussion he told me about the monthly activity that was going to take place the very next day. He asked my seniors to include me in the activity. I was quite happy to be a part of the activity. My seniors were discussing about the script and even i was asked for ideas. I was also included in the script i was also given a small office scene. First day went very well. Now it was show time the activity day.

The activity day(23.11.2019):

The activity started in the morning all my seniors were very welcoming and enthusiastic. Then came my scene where i had to sit in the office and this way i was a part of the activity. Later seniors had arranged for lunch. The day ended pretty well and it was alot of fun to be a part of the activity.It does not end here i was chosen for a small task and that was editing and assembling the videos. After the work was done all my seniors appreciated me for what i had done.

At the end i would like to say that this one week i had alot of fun and interaction with my seniors. They were the one who made me comfortable and at home.

I will be coming up with more blog and  interesting Vlogs.

PEHLI BAAR HAIN JI

blog_image_4

Hello readers. I am Manjyot Kaur. I am pursuing my bachelors in commerce from St. Xavier’s College (Autonomous), Kolkata along with my certificate course in Graphics, Web Designing and Development (GWDD, 2nd Semester) from Arena Animation, Park Street.

This is my first blog about my first seminar at Arena Animation. The subject was Typography and Blogging itself. Hence I got the motivation to write this.

The first session was on Typography. Starting from what are pictograms and phonograms to anatomy, every bit of information on it was beautifully explained by our teacher. I never knew about the em-space  and en-space. Various fonts which we incorporated in our graphics are obsolete and some are not even appropriate to use. Answers to some of the questions were known but not most of them. Our teacher had explained each element of the anatomy of any font. I never thought that letters also had anatomy like our human bodies do. The end of the session gave us a feeling of frisson. We had to create our own font. I never thought someone would ever ask me to do that. Somehow we did it and there was one winner like in the every race.

As and when the second session started, we all were eager to know the commonly heard term, ‘Blogging’. I have tried writing blogs before this. However, after the session, I would rectify myself. We got to know about various sites like WordPress and how blogging is a trend these days. The definition of blogging in one line would be ‘sharing your stories online by writing them’. Blogging is a crucial element of digital marketing. As a web development student it is important to know that content is king of any website. Hence this session was crucial for us.

At the end, we were also provided with information about making your curriculum vitae. This was like cherry on the cake.

I believe that gaining knowledge is a continuous process and lessons outside class are very important as we cannot learn about a subject wholly in restricted timings of our classes.

Zindagi Ek Safar Hai Suhana

SUDDEN HOW! LIFE BECOMES GET A NEW PHASE

Hi Guys, I am Bhavna Agarwal student of Arena Animation Park Street, Digital Advertising And Digital Marketing(DADM)(2nd semester).This is my first blog through which I want to share my views with you all, about my transition from first phase to birth giving phase(from 1st semester to 2nd semester).

As I was so far from Arena family, I didn’t know how’s the four walls of Arena will treat me if I get enroll myself in this institute.

So, when I got enroll myself in December, 2018, from this time my life has become changed. Guys, I have done B.Tech in computer science from Luckhnow University in 2014. After that I had done my post-graduation i.e., M.B.A in computers and HR in 2016. Actually I have a very distinct story. When I completed my B.Tech, I wanted to get placed in some professional life. I had given many on campus and off campus interviews, some has given me correct evidence and some negate me. But in the end of my B.Tech, I got selected in an interview for a private organization, in Delhi. Then suddenly what happens, my family has been shifted to Kolkata due to business norms. That time I didn’t know anybody in Kolkata as it’s a new place for me. I have never been there before this time.

Suddenly by God’s grace, I got a chance to I enrolled myself in Arena Animation Park Street. Now, I have started to enjoy my course as I was so enthusiastic to know graphics and marketing. In spite of all the academic work, I had learned some extra-curricular activities and to became a part of Arena family. All the time software tools and their working struck to my mind to make me what to do next. When I get free time, practice chases me.

Though I am a house wife, I have to do all home chores. Not all but I do cooking, have to give my sometime to each and everybody, some socializing, my personnel work and all other things which every girl follow after their weddings. In spite of all, it’s my pleasure I am enjoying every needle of this course. I listen my mentors, I involve almost in every activity of APS.

Now my first semester has been completed and I am walking towards my second semester, our seniors have welcomed us with a nice balloon decor in THOR Lab. They were guiding us, what would we have to face in 2nd semester. Seniors told us that you people have to be concentrate on your work because Somnath Sir is very passionate towards his work.

I think, what I did in past it’s not sufficient and I have to build myself strong, reliable and tolerant. Earlier I had learnt tools and techniques but right now, I have to implement them with my great efforts. Now my life has become changed again. Earlier, I was down to earth personality but I have become idealistic.

I thought, I have to substitute myself to become strengthen, patient and passionate one to survive in this adventurous world. My thought process has changed entirely after entering in this dreamy world. Earlier I was introvert but now I am an extrovert. What a wonderful well of knowledge and experience tapping inside me is making me fantastic. And I think there is no greater skill in life than patience.

At the end I’d like to say Life is very short. You never know when it will get change. So, guys do everything in your life whatever you want. Whatever runs in present, opportunities comes in future.

Perks of being a APS DADM Student

blog image

Hey everyone! I am Meghna Gupta2nd sem student pursuing DADM (Digital Advertising Design & Marketing) course from Arena Animation, Park Street. Along with this I am doing my B.COM  (bachelors of commerce ) from J.D Birla Institute.

I’m very excited to write this blog as it is the first time ever I’m ever writing a blog. My journey in APS has been beautiful and life-changing. Every day I learn something new and interesting. In this blog I will share my experience about the recent seminar I attended in APS on the topic ‘Digital Marketing benefits in GWDD (Graphic, Web Design and Development).

As interesting as the topic, the seminar was also exhilarating. The seminar was held on 21st June 2019, and was conducted at the ‘Thor Lab’. We all know how marketing has evolved globally by going digital and it has become an important part of every organisation. With India going digital more the concept of digital marketing has come into the picture. The seminar was conducted by my mentor, Somnath Chakraborty Sir. He has a different approach and doesn’t believe in teaching theoretically. He makes us understand everything practically and has always been preparing us for the industry. He explained exactly what is digital marketing and what are the different aspects connected to it and how it is useful in every career and why every firm today needs a digital marketer. He often says, “digital marketing is an ocean”, an ocean of techniques.

A firm requires a digital marketer for it’s promotion, brand building and buying and selling of goods efficiently and many other activities. He made us acquainted with the term “SEM” (Search Engine Marketing) and “SEO” (Search Engine Optimisation) which are major parts of digital marketing.

He further explained the various ways to optimise a website and the factors such as text, content, images, videos and inbound and outbound links affecting the rank of website in a SERP (Search Engine Result Page).We also had the honour of having our centre head, Ramesh Ruia Sir to share his knowledge with us, which was extremely useful. He told us how the population is distributed among X,Y & Z generation and how to hit the right target audience using a right digital platform.

He unfolded the importance of ‘content’ in a digital platform. He said, “At the end everything comes back to the content.” He also gave examples from his own life and what role did digital marketing play and also explained the concept of Google Analytics. Both of their discourse on the topic was very engrossing and enlightening.

Between the seminar, we got a break in which we all classmates seniors and juniors really bonded with each other and had a nice time. The day ended with a relaxing chai and samosa session with my seniors and Somnath Chakraborty Sir.

Thank you APS for arranging this captivating seminar. It made feel that I chose a right career for myself by choosing DADM as my course and made me realise the need for a  digital marketer in the society.

Experiences That Matters

Experiences That Matters27332733_210656996163164_8341032753999385392_n

Hello everyone! I am Shrrija Das 2nd sem student pursuing DADM course from Arena Animation,Park Street.

This is my very first blog which basically pens down my experiences I have had so far in these very four walls of Arena Animation. I can undoubtedly assure you that the last 10 months of my 1st sem(comprising of Digital Advertising Design) here were nothing but an enriching experience about learning something new and assimilating my thoughts and ideas into one place.

It is before joining Arena, that I had this idea, that someone who has great knowledge about painting and designing could only go for these type of courses which wasn’t totally wrong but wasn’t totally right either. This course will not only allow me to learn something new in the fields of designing but also help me out with marketing as I am pursuing Bachelor Of Management Studies from St. Xavier’s College,Kolkata and would also become an icing on the cake for my resume.

It is also believed that –“Knowledge is the only thing that this world can’t take away from us”. And I always go by this notion.

Coming to the faculty members, my 1st sem mentors were Sayani Ma’am and Deepak Sir. They taught me Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Premiere, Adobe Audition respectively. Both of them were equally supportive and it is because of them that I could learn how to get my scattered ideas and creativity together.

Often, Ma’am used to say –“ Make it simple, but significant .” Trust me, this saying works wonders if you understand it.

Talking about the 2nd sem(comprising of Digital Marketing) taking place in the “Thor” lab, it has only been 5 days with Somnath Sir and I can tell that he is one of a kind. He is also known as ‘Singham’ for a reason, but he is very persistent in his work and that is to teach us the right ways in building a great core straight for the industry, which shows that he truly cares for his students. From the very first day, he has told us that Digital Marketing is not going to be as easy as what we have learnt in 1st sem and that it is not about tools but he will be there for us whenever we need him only after we try to solve the problem ourselves in the first place. I believe, with his support by my side and by listening to what he says I can work on my loopholes.

I have also attended a seminar conducted by him which proved to be an effective one and I am also looking forward to attending more of it. Meghna is my classmate, we have started our classes together and she has always helped me out with the problems I have faced so far.  A wonderful initiative was also taken up by the seniors, Burhan Mullamithawala, Mariyam Dharar, Rupankan Bhattacharya & Salini Pal to welcome us as the freshers to the Thor lab, where we learnt many things about the lab and got to know about sir a little more and that what we should do and what we should not. Overall, so far it has been a great experience and I am really happy to be a part of Arena Animation, Park Street. I am looking forward to having more great experiences as long as I am here.

Always remember to “Be thankful for everything that happens in your life; it’s all an experience” – by Roy T.Bennett.

Ajab GWDD Ki Gazab Kahaani

burhan

Hello guys! I am Burhan Mullamithawala from 2nd semester, GWDD, Arena Animation, Park Street.

This is my second blog. I would like to share with you my experience in the past 3 months of coming in the 2nd semester of GWDD, Arena Animation, Park Street and my latest experience in participating in our exhibition Pratibimba2019.

As I shared with you in my last post how I have changed in the last 8 months, only this time I would like to tell how responsible I have become as a person.

Learning HTML language in GWDD has widened my perspective of how little I know about today’s technology. Its vastness blew my mind but it didn’t stop me from taking it as a challenge. Instead I understood its concepts and logic that is to be used while designing a web page. As our mentor Sir Somnath Chakraborty tells us that Web is a vast ocean and it can never be learnt in a limited time. Every day it’s changing and expanding through its boundaries. Only we can do is to keep learning and adapt with it. Currently, I’m progressing in learning this vast language and I have already begun in designing my first webpage for my first GWDD Project. It has been a challenging experience but I have the support of my teacher, my family and my seniors Koushik Dalui, Salina Marandi and Ausmita Pal. Apart from being just seniors, they have become friends as well. We share a great bond and no one could tell that we have a senior-junior relationship.

Coming to Pratibimba2019, it’s an experience that cannot be explained in words. We all worked hard for it to be a success. We made short funny clips where we enacted different roles. I for sure got to see a different side of myself. I got to play Gabbar (Macchar) Singh and it was a fun moment. I also got to see my funny side where I enacted in a funny interview. And that funny side did also come out mainly because of one person, my senior Sattwik Banerjee who played my interviewer. His acting chops are a class apart but more so are his funny gags which made us laugh out loud. We also got to play roles where we were smitten by Tanushree Roy’s playboy character and we ended up having fun due to Koushik Dalui and Sandip Mondal’s hilarious acting.

All our videos were on display for our parents, friends and other esteemed guests to see and we definitely got a great feedback. These videos showed people that our lives just don’t revolve around studies but we also have fun. It showed that we break the monotony of living a robotic life and do something opposite where we end up enjoying and learning from each other. We got to interact with people during the exhibition and it helped us in learning how to present ourselves to different types of crowd.

All in all it was a great experience for me. I learned how to take charge of my life and present myself in front of the camera and people. But all of this would not be possible without the guidance and support of our mentor Sir Somnath Chakraborty. He truly brings out the best in us. He is many a time harsh on us but that is only because he knows our capabilities and he wants us to get out of our comfort zone. He sees a great potential in me and I know I will reach my destination because I have his unconditional support.

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog. Hoping to share more of my experiences in GWDD, Arena Animation, Park Street.

Woh Zindagi Hi Kya, Jisme Koi Namumkin Sapna Na Ho

Koushik-Dalui

Koushik Dalui, GWDD, 2nd Semester, Arena Animation, Park Street

Hello everyone! This is my first blog where I would like to share my journey so far in GWDD (Graphics Web Designing & Development), 2nd Semester.

The true value of an asset is realized when we lose the asset. As far as I was doing a job I didn’t understand what contribution it had in my life. After working for 5 years in a telecommunication company, I lost the job when the company collapsed, leaving us jobless overnight. I reached a state of null void which seemed endless and infinite. I was clueless about the next steps in my career. But I knew I had to work for my family, not just any work but something where I could give my heart and passion. Since I started working from the college days, I didn’t get time to upgrade any other skills. Thus, I knew at first I have to update my technical skills in a very short span of time. That’s why I went for the suggestion by my brother and took up GWDD in Arena Animation, Park Street.

The reason to take this course was to get a job at the end of it, by any means. Our classes started with first semester. When it started, classes were just for two hours a day, thrice a week, as it should be. I knew my destination but not how to reach the destination. I worked but mostly I spent times with friends, not taking studies seriously. I really miss that life and the fun I used to have. Why? Because now , that life is nothing but a mirage to me.

At the end of first semester i got information that we will be sent to another faculty for 2nd Semester, to the man who was famous for his rude and tough nature, words he used and most importantly, his success in building up a student’s future. His reputation always preceded him. He was none other than Singham ( Somnath Sir). When our whole batch was ready and we had a small session with him. I cannot express what I felt like that day. We all were scared and nervous. Since my communication skills are not so good, I was afraid even more about how I would answer his questions. As the classes started, I took some time to get used to the class timings, working principles and environment. Every second I lived in the threat of getting scolded or committing a mistake. Slowly, sir explained me my faults and analyzed me. He told me to work on important areas and other loop holes I had. He told me to work for myself and not just to complete the syllabus. When I understood why I had to take the pressure or work so hard on my assignments I started working on them wholeheartedly. After spending the whole day in classes I still got home tasks which I had to complete after returning home late night. It became difficult to adjust with the late night working hours and waking up early in the morning. But with time I got accustomed to the new routine and loads of work. Of course, the pressure I took wasn’t for my teacher, my friends or anyone else. It was for me and my bright future. It was for the dream and the battle I was fighting to leave the null void behind and start a new life.

The best part of this semester is the changes I went through. I heard a lot of stories about other’s experiences. Now that I feel them myself, I understood the real taste of it. Sitting in a position for hours wasn’t something I could do before. But now , the coding keeps me engaged for hours and I don’t even realize time passing by. Gradually I learned to calm my mind and think before acting. I learned to organize my thoughts, my life, and also my folder system. Our classes became self-sufficient with the fun and entertainment right inside the classroom, among my batch mates. I have to agree, that they were as refreshing as productive and informative. Whether it be monthly activity or monthly seminar, Pinocchio Lab (our classroom) has always presented me with a gift and teachings that changed me as a person. I know I have a long way to go. But now, I have started enjoying walking on this path and know that this will lead me to my destination.
