About me

Aged 20, I, Raashi Metkari hold a degree in Journalism, currently am based in Prague. I aspire to be a visual storyteller. The one driving factor that has always fascinated me into exploring the visual field has been the power of storytelling. I believe stories aren’t just a reservoir of cultures and coexistence, but rather something way more powerful in effectiveness and inspirational in nature. In a world, wherein parallel stories try to pave their way into the mainstream, very many often lack the resources to do so, or are just victims to the compartmentalization of hierarchical structures in society. It is in this same world, where those privileged with a camera and a pinch of curiosity, can play the role of enablers to these stories. Stories are powerful. They are our chance in having a better world for ourselves. With a clear mind that tells me each day “Every Story Matters” I enthralled on a journey in search of stories through my travel within India (and most recently, China). It is in one of these trips that I realised my love for the road. Here, the road being my personal enabler of stories. Driving me around multiple cultures, and the panorama of diversity engulfed within, the road has truly left me wanting more. If asked what I see myself doing for a lifetime, my answer would only be being an enabler of tales from lands lesser known. Exposing the 9 to 5 working class to a parallel universe, that has been blurred by the mainstream. By making films that come from the roots, and yet are contemporary and relevant. My life goal is to “experience a quarter of the world”, and while I have continued to align my skills primarily in visual communication, I believe the opportunity to work with you will be a major step in the direction of its achievement. “Learning never exhausts the mind.” -Leonardo Da Vinci
