Since I can't upload all my films here, Click below to see Filmography...

The first time I heard this song, I could only imagine Madhuri dancing to it,
And I was like; why not convert this into a video using found footage.
And here I am with the first promo; I will be completing the song over the summer…

Onion Soup - Video Installation
The concept behind the installation is to enter a thought space with a visual description of my thoughts displayed through a dual projection placed at different angles on the wall. 
The projections are further layered with 4 mosquito nets which multiply the projections representing the layers of our thoughts which are constantly on different tangents in our mind.
The idea behind the installation is – No matter where we are and who we are talking to – Our physical being has no relevance to our mental being – We can be somewhere else mentally and the physical existence wont hold any importance. I have tried to create this blank space between our physical and mental being

Images showing what the video installation looked
 like with multiple projections

I'm Home
I'm Home was made under Purple Burps Productions with my crazy friend - Sibya Rosalyn 
The film revolves around on how each abandoned building is a bag full of memories from each family that has lived there and made it into a home.  


 'Pause' is a dual film that was made under the sci-fi course held in Srishti. It is also my first attempt at Science Fiction.
The world today survives on a social construct due to which the human brain has been accustomed to respond, inspire or follow the path shown to it by its surroundings – its society. The realm of society can be brought down to families. The concept of families has been depleting since the past few years – It started by Joint families followed by the concept of Nuclear families and people today are okay with the fact of not being married or remaining single; this belief has led the concept of society starting from the concept of family to abolish in the next coming years.
Due to the abolishment of society – social construct has failed - The human brain has stopped responding to emotions and is not being influenced its surroundings as in this world today – It just wishes to work for survival – the very basics – food, water, sleep. It is not aspiring to go beyond; as there is nothing to aspire it. It has chosen not to reproduce or carry on their evolution forward – As it is not influenced by humans anymore.
The present human social construct in this world has paused.
The brain has accustomed itself to follow and not to lead.
