It’s been a while, where have you been?

Yes, it’s been a while I know…

It’s been over 2 months since my last blog post and a lot has gone on, and I mean a tremendous amount. Only a select few have known that I had been to India and directed a documentary out there on the Amritsar Massacre of 1919, and the experience was incredible.

And we’re now in the post production process I’ve been quiet as ever, but the end product is going to be an important one, culturally speaking.

There is so much I’ve learnt and if you know me, you know that speaking Punjabi is not my strong point, especially when it comes to explaining technicalities, but I did an amazing job of directing in my mother tongue which was a valuable life lesson.

Me and my producer will release the documentary in April 2019 on the 100 year anniversary of the Jallianwala Bagh Massacre and will screen it at Wolverhampton University.

February bookings can now be made, if you need a music video shooting, crew for a short film or video editing then message me or drop me a line at filmsbyravi@gmail.com

Film Fundamentals workshop

November has approached quick and there’s 2 months left of the year!

There’s plenty of people out there who are already ahead of the ‘New year new me’ curve and are already planning what they want to improve about themselves, and then there are people like you and me who are on that virtuous grind all year round.

It is for those like you and I that this workshop is for, those who search for information and want to turn it into practical knowledge to use out in the real world.  There’s been many a times where I went to go and listen to a guest speaker here, an industry specialist there and had gotten the same information. Walking out with an empty notepad and  pissed. Maybe I was looking in the wrong places?

This is why I want to give you and 9 others a one hour workshop on the pre-production in film and video, free of charge. We will also have a discussion at the end too so your voices are heard. If you are someone who needs guidance on executing a solid pre production game plan then click the link below and RSVP.

Oct 2018

I had received the good news that a film I produced back in my final year at University has now been selected and will be screened in November 2018 as part of the Birmingham Film Festival!

It was a graft getting that film together with my director Kamilah, luckily we had an amazing team. Better yet, we had even more amazing communication. As a producer I knew my roles very well, but it was also important that I had communicated across to the team what their roles were and what the requirements were. My director and I had then sat together and drafted up requirements including areas of study in which we would like the crew to gain knowledge on (from what style we are going to shoot, what camera we’re using to sources of inspiration) so that when it comes to practice shoots we have solid ideas to base the practice off of.

Preparation like this is so overlooked in simple things like music videos, I would like to work in a way where there is room to prepare just as how we prepared the crew.
