I am a cinematographer from India, currently living in London. Studying at the National Film and Television School has given me the opportunity to shoot on film (16mm and 35mm) and digital mediums across fiction, documentary, commercials and animation projects.
Narratives that look at the layered relationships of characters on the periphery of society at a moment of transition are of particular interest. Supplementing them with imagery that depict the intricacies of mood, emotion and relationships through a symbolic approach to framing and lighting excites me.
Arushi has worked on a number of productions which have gone on to receive critical acclaim. 'Dragged Up' was shortlisted for Best British Film at Iris Prize, broadcast on Film4 and available on All4 for a year. It has also received an honorable mention at Outshine Film Festival, selected for Encounters Film Festival among others. 'Do Not Feed The Pigeons', a film I did additional Photography on, won the BAFTA for Best Animation. 'Flavours Without Borders' was nominated for the Royal Television Society Award, New Voices Award at Edinburgh TV Festival and shortlisted at Series Fest. 'The Visit' screened at Bronzelens festival and Woman With A Movie Camera Summit. It also won the Best Student Film Award at Hollyshorts Festival.
