It was in August 2000 when Sam, an undergraduate, walked into a Production Company and announced “I want to work here!”. The director of the company absorbed him in as swiftly as Sam’s “announcement” was innocent. Over the next 4 years Sam upgraded into a Video Editor winning nominations for his work in Fictional TV. Directing short films on the side, he developed an interest for TVC’s. Moving on to working for one of India’s most celebrated Directors- Ketan Mehta, Sam worked on Visual Effects for some of India’s biggest feature films. Now having a clear idea about where his passions lay, Sam moved to Australia to study at the Sydney Film School and immediately started acclimatising to the Australian Film & Ad scene. During his years spent in Sydney and Melbourne, he graduated from a Production Assistant to a Producer developing a professional network across Australia. After returning home to Mumbai in 2009, Sam worked as a TV Commercials Producer and setup his own Production Company and an office in Melbourne partnering with Australian Producer- John Hipwell.
Over the years Sam has produced TV Commercials, Feature Films and AV Content which has made him a reputable name in the Indian and Australian Film Industries. Now transitioning to his passion for Writing and Directing, Sam is currently writing Feature Films stories that would connect the Australian and Indian continents narratively.
