In the first phase of its launch, the Academic programme will be introduced to schools in Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata, Hyderabad and Bangalore and will be launched in other cities in phase II. A special curriculum has been formulated to help students learn all nuances and become proficient in the art of video editing and filmmaking, informs an official release.

Using the Pinnacle Studio editing software, students can now add sound effects, put labels and re-arrange the order of the pictures or video to make their own Harry Potter movies or special birthday videos and upload them on the net to share with their friends and relatives.

With cameras and mobiles becoming a daily part of their lives, the Pinnacle Studio Editing Software can help children edit videos and still pictures to make their own favourite movies like Spiderman and Harry Potter! Not only that, with Pinnacle Studio editing children can easily upload the movies on the net and share with their friends. patriotic

"The Studio Academic programme has been a big hit with children across the globe and we are sure it will be a great success in India too. The best part of this programme is that it taps into the 'technologically savvy' new generation and offers it an avenue into the rapidly growing world of broadcasting in India."
