“Cinematography doesn’t have to be beautiful. It has to be appropriate.”
Cinematography for me has always been a tool for the art of story telling rather than just beautiful imageries. And I always strive to create visuals that can make the storytelling more interesting and engaging. Because I believe it is the story that is more important and vital!
And my belief was reinforced when I was featured in the Arri Signature Prime Summer 2020 Showreel. Only two cinematographers from India were featured in the same. That was a moment to cherish which made me believe every design has a purpose and the journey is in the right direction!
