Filmmaking is not just science and art but also philosophy as well. Our approach is based on the quiet meditative way that we use in wildlife filming. We bring a sense of calmness and warmth to capture the essence of your organisation without causing chaos and disrupting your busy corporate life. We want to understand what you want to be and through our films help modify the perception and morph your organisation into it.

Films

Our Documentary "Jewels of Thane Creek" was created for Maharashtra Government, Mangrove Cell, GIZ and Indo-German Biodiversity Project on Coastal & Marine Protected Area to highlight the unique mangrove ecosystem of Thane Creek and its impact on Mumbai.

We are equally at ease exploring the role of Culture in our lives...

We take special interest in exploring India's historical past to draw inspirations from the art in stone that has survived thousands of years. Our Short film "Fall of Harappa" to highlight the role of Climate Change in decimating the advanced Harappa Civilization

Our documentary on the cult of 64 Yogini worship and tantra traditions is currently under production...

We don't believe in short cuts. A sneek peek to our Documentary "Leopards: The Last Stand" which is being shot over the last few years in various parts of India.

Pound for pound, the leopard is the most powerful predator. Like the mysterious black panther, we love to pack in a big punch. We own and use the latest professional equipment like the Canon Cinema C300 cameras, Canon 1D X Mark II, Sound Devices mixers and recorders, OConnor fluid heads and tripods, sliders, Aerial copters etc. to shoot and create world class imagery.
