A group photo with the representatives from National Kidney Foundation
It all began on 18th October 2018 when Azizul Rahman, a senior lecturer from the Broadcasting department approached the representatives from the National Kidney Foundation (NKF) when they were at BAC PJ campus for a talk. Seeing this as an opportunity to collaborate with them, he took upon himself to make it a project for his Scriptwriting for TV and Production Management class.
IACT has always been known for collaborating with industry clients like MGAG, MAGGI, R. AGE, WOBB and many more to allow the students to experience real life industry project. However, what made this collaboration different from the rest?
In an interview with Azizul, he said “I want to find a new direction for the students. Not only will they be doing this as assignment but they are also helping the society by spreading awareness about the foundation” It is like making a meaning in the works of the students.
Students pitching their ideas to the client
Approximately about 55 students were divided into groups for this documentary project as their final assignment. To highlight issues given by the client, they were given 5 themes and 2 of them were students favourite: Dialysis patient’s journey and Healthy eating. To make it fair, Azizul had them combine 2 themes that are relatable to make the documentary interesting.
