Films

I have been a thorough enthusiast of movies ever since his schooling days. Movies would make me crazy and I could go any extent to watch a film. Lucky to have been bought up near Filmcity in Goregaon (E), Mumbai, I have often hurt myself trying to get a glimpse of film shooting and witness the actors perform in front of the camera.
Despite having worked in the IT industry as a technical writer and a creative content writer, my quest for movies never really quenched. The longer it took me to make a film some day or even be a part of film making process, the deeper I craved to make it happen some day.
However, I never gave up. And finally a day dawned when I was called by a budding film-maker (Achyut Narayana) to be a part of his team. Till then, I was only aware of the jargon and the nuances of film making in theory. To use that know-how into actual film making process had finally chanced upon me.
