The Video Graphics Association, better known as the VGA, is a student body within the institute which started as a small group of students interested in making videos. The body has made several documentaries on social awareness, academics and for student entertainment. The VGA also makes short films aimed at not only sending messages out to the public but also for competing in national level film festivals.

The work of VGA include two videos for the counseling days which tell the story of the Institute’s development from absolutely nothing to a building equipped with the best quality academic facilities- the way the founding batch has seen it grow.

The VGA has also made a music video dedicated to the pioneering batch of the Institute which had been to Kuchchh, Gujarat on a rural internship during the summer of 2008. The video is living proof that this one batch when put together will always find a reason to smile even when they are put in the harshest rural conditions. No wonder the title of the video says ‘Friends Forever’.

The VGA (Video Graphics Association) of PDPU was approached by the National Institute of Fashion Technology, Gandhinagar (NIFT) to prepare a documentary on the occasion of the National Girl Child Day (24th January, 2009). The VGA had thus taken up the challenge of making a documentary in a short span of four days and thanks to all those who have been working along with us for this documentary, that we were able to finish this venture within the set deadline. The documentary ‘Let her not be born again’ is about how the girl child is treated right from the time she is born to the time she is married. It is followed by a few slides and a poem composed by our very talented scriptwriters. The documentary had been screened in front of distinguished panelists such as Mrs. Manjula Shroff (Founder – Calorx Foundation), Mr G S Gulati (Director – UNICEF), and Ms Amisha Mehta, Course Co-ordinator – NIFT. The VGA is glad that the documentary was well received by everybody and the entire team was appreciated. This documentary would not have been possible without the constant support and encouragement from Dr. Nigam Dave and Mr. Dushyant Dave.

Moreover, VGA stood 1st in SYNAPSE’08 (cultural fest of DA-IICT, Gandhinagar) for the video ‘Let her not be born again’. VGA has also made documentary ‘How corrupt they are…’ to make people aware about corruption.

The VGA participated in an event organized by School of Petroleum Management in association with National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT in Gandhinagar) and Dhirubhai Ambani Institute of Information Technology (DA-IICT in Gandhinagar). The event was conceptualized on ‘Young India’ and was aimed at awakening the youth towards the nation. Many Institutes in Gandhinagar and Ahmedabad had also participated in the event. The VGA had made a video for the sleeping youth - ‘Wake up India’.

The VGA further plans to compete in film making festivals organized by colleges like IIT Kanpur (Antaragini), IIT Powai, Bombay (Mood Indigo) in the academic year 2009-2010. It also plans to work in collaboration with more institutes to do whatever good it can to society.
