Parag Patil: (Asst.Editor for Films) : (Half Girl Friend, Ek Villain, InduSarkar,PoshterBoyz, I Wish, BehenHogi Teri)

Getting trained under Kunal Sir helped me a lot to know how a film actually gets shaped on Editing Table. He not only trains the students with the IN & OUTs of the software but intends to teach the actual EDITINGprocess.His motive is to get students qualified as editors and not software operaters.

Vishal Jadhav: (Editor:Reliance Broadcast Networks Limited

Being a Commercial Artist, I was aware of Print media but a novice to the field of Electronic Media. Getting trained under Kunal Sir helped me widen my vision to work in electronic media as an Editor. His patience while teaching.helped us from the student stage itself to develop the same patience and calm actually needed for an Editor while working professionally. His up-to-date knowledge about the softwares and continuous changing trends in editing also keep us motivated, to remain updated too.

Ashutosh Ghurup: (Editor & D.I. Dept.:NY DI Wala: Ajay Devgn Productions)

Excellent Amalgamation of script writing and editing. He teached us how to edit scripts before going to shooting stage and how it is beneficial for the Director also to visualize the entire film from Editing point of view.

Nikhil Thorawde: (Editor:Prime Focus Technologies)

Learning Editing under Kunal Sir was always a fun as he always taught each and every aspect of editing with ease and specifying a reason as to why it is needed and done in filmmaking. With all the suitable video clip examples whether it would be a specific kind of CUT or EFFECTs, everything used has a purpose behind story telling.This kind of learning has helped me a lot now while working as an Editor on different platforms.

Priyal Mahadik: (Editor: Prime Focus)

Now working at a senior position at Prime Focus,I had been a student of Editing approximately 10 years ago. But till date we are in touch for all the technical know how and changing market trends of softwares and editing styles and techniques. Inspite of being a teacher he also keeps alive the student in himself and also inspires us to keep alive the student inside us for on gaining knowledge of not only editing but every aspect of filmmaking.
