Vismaya Max Audio has shifted its recording studios Prarthana and Pooja from Chennai, Tamil Nadu to Kerala, with the aim to brush up its home turf in Thiruvananthapuram Kinfra film and video park. The move follows its joint venture with the Indian arm of the worlds largest multimedia school, School of Audio-engineering College (SAE College).

The arrival of the sound studios will give much-needed audio facilities to the Kinfra film and video park, Kinfra managing director AS Suresh Babu said.

Vismaya Max Audio will soon start an open air set facility. The set will be the first of its kind in the country and will be very cost-effective in terms of film production, claims actor Mohanlal, who owns Vismaya. The company has involved artists like Sabu Cyril and Rajeev Kumar in the project, he added.

In the three-acre film campus of Vismaya, filmmakers will be able to reproduce any kind of open air ambience with the use of modules and the latest techniques employed in Hollywood, according to Mr Mohanlal.

The studio will be functional in eight months.

Meanwhile, the Kerala unit of the Sydney-based SAE College has started functioning with 10 students in Thiruvananthapuram. Access Atlantech, the technology partner of Vismaya in the JV with SAE, monitors the course curriculum and the teaching process.

SAE has a student strength of 12,800 in 36 centers spread across 16 countries. The degree and diploma courses offered by SAE have accreditation from Middlesex University, UK among others.
