D - Parthas - for about.jpg

I've wanted to be a filmmaker ever since I can remember. It started way back in school, when I badgered my father into buying me a Sony Handycam that shot on Digital 8 tapes.  Although I did study filmmaking during college, I believe I learnt more on the job. Early gigs included assisting Sujoy Ghosh on Kahaani, and working with Sumantra Ghoshal on his documentary films as a cinematographer. 

I thoroughly enjoy telling stories, particularly in the advertising space - be it a few seconds, or better still, a longer film running into several minutes. I also lookout for opportunities as a cinematographer, but mostly for non-fiction. There’s something about shooting documentaries that I have always enjoyed. Given a chance, I’d love to take a stab at fashion too.
