Have you ever thrown something against the wall to see if it sticks? One night I decided to post a random message into a companies chat bot window. The message was about making a documentary and I'll admit, I didn't think anyone would read it.
A few weeks later, someone had seen the message and responded. We set up a meeting in Las Vegas to go over the film idea and see if we could make this idea come to life.
Sometimes things just work out. Shrinivas Sugandhayala BNG the makers of Nag Champa was a dream client of mine. They were at a point where they needed their story told and needed to establish an online presence.
Within a couple months I was on a plane to Bangaluru, India with a bag full of camera gear and a visitors visa.
I travelled to India on multiple times to work on the film. Overall I spent a month in Bangaluru but would travel all over Southern India.
It was an unforgettable moment in my life and the first time where I felt like a real filmmaker.
