About

Why, hello there!

 

How do I pronounce the name?

(We-know-the, and cut off the extra 'uh' from "the"), you can ask me as many times as you need. :)

I'm learning the fine art of filmmaking, and I'd like you to be part of my story. Besides narrative films, documentaries, and music videos, I also enjoy covering profiles, events, corporate presentations, student films, and pretty much anything that can be imagined.

While growing up in a small township in Kerala, India, we experienced significant delays in how fast we were exposed to technological advances. So the internet, TV Shows, and international trends came largely late. I tried using my imagination quite vividly, and enjoyed consuming videos more than anything else. I tried my hand at writing at around this time as well.

Since then, I've been through business school, advertising, and generally got advised to stop pursuing filmmaking. It was in my second year of business school that I actually made "my first student film", and, well, it's pretty much what you'd expect from an 18 year old who had no idea what to do, and where to go. This is obviously going to be the most immature/unorganized film I've made, and there's no pride in hiding it.

So I'm still rather proud of it, considering the number of times it almost never came through.

By the end of my stay in Delhi, just as I finished college, I started taking up classes and started making any sort of video I could. And that was just a few months ago. Now I'm in Tokyo, and making more videos than I thought I would be. And I'd like to continue growing.

I started out freelancing around May, 2017, and joined the DigitalHUB.JP team in December, 2017. I also work on videos for Sake Works on their 'Sip of Japan' series.

That's a condensed perspective on my video-based journey thus far. Come along for the ride?
