Sarath split the groups into 5 teams of each 11 member. We are asked to pick a lot by teams which contains different roles like,
  • Producer
  • Director
  • Assistant Director

  • Script Writer
  • Screen Play
  • Actors
Time chart has been displayed to us regarding What to do? When to finish all the activities? - Its a Theme of Developing a Story and making it live with Trailers and showing full movie by acting on the stage by teams.


  All producers got instruction based on the story theme line they are expecting in their film. Directors got ideas regarding the resource usage. Only directors involved with the tam members, all the producers were asked to sit in a different area apart from their respective groups.

After some time, discussions moved in all the teams, charts, sketches has been given to producers. None of the team meet producer regarding what they need ? what to do in film story like that? After sometime directors from different team came up with a story. Producers started rejecting their story and told that we are expecting a different concept like that. 

Then, the team started working based on producer needs, We got an alert from Sarath, regarding performing our trailers. Most of the team did somewhat good after trailer over all teams presented full movie on the stage.

Everyone participated actively on the stage performed their skills in acting. 

After Lunch, Priya discussed about Cognizant Culture and some general things in Cognizant.
