Inquisitiveness is what really brought me into the fabulous world of filmmaking. A bachelor of engineer studying for his master of business management entrance test went on a documentary shoot with one of my friend as a driver, to help him and to understand how the films are made, ended up being a boom man, camera and lighting assistant on that shoot.
Completely mesmerized by the unseen chaotic world around me that starts challenging my notion of existence in it. That’s where I got hooked up to filmmaking and started my journey to understand my surroundings and the correlation of my existence with it.I love good stories more than the gear and really thrive on collaboration in finding each story’s uniqueness.
The same thing “inquisitiveness ‘ wants me to work with different people and try to understand different approaches towards cinematography.
