KIIT School of Film and Media Sciences Student wins Basudha Award for best film (25.06.2012) Also wins “Best Cinematographer” of the year.

Subhransu Satpathy, a 3rd year student of KIIT School of Film & Media Sciences, loves nature. His passion and his skill in film making won him an award for “Best Film” at Basudha – a National Level Art and Film Festival that was organized a few days ago in Bhubaneswar. Student’s Filmmakers of India also awarded him the best cinematography award for his short-film ‘They Really Need Us’. It depicts the plight of birds in summer.

His movie has a message for viewers and tells them to keep a bowl of water in an open space such as in balconies and gardens so that birds can quench their thirst. The movie suggests making small reservoirs for birds so that they can bathe in hot weather conditions. Subhransu is a film-making student at KIIT University, a wildlife photographer and an e-volunteer for World Wildlife fund (WWF) and Global Oneness Project. “The motto of making this short film was to create  awareness among people about the need to save these little creatures. I will be more than happy if my movie impels viewers to do something for the welfare of birds and other wildlife,” said Satpathy.
