About me

After having worked as a Freelance Editor and Cinematographer in India for a year, I decided to pursue what I've always wanted to: Fiction Filmmaking. So what better than the beautiful city of Prague to study Filmmaking? In Prague Film School, I wrote, directed and edited about 6 of my own short films apart from serving as a Director Of Photography, Gaffer and Art director in about 20-30 other films. I specialized in Cinematography since I was already a professional editor, although I would say that my main talent is editing. Now, I am fresh out of film school and am looking for opportunities to continue making movies that are not just "commercial" products or "Avant-garde" pieces but also works that engage the audience and give them an immersive experience that only pure storytelling can achieve.
