Director Biography - Krishnaraj Seenivasan

Krishnaraj is a 22 year old Indian born, American raised, London studied filmmaker. His first foray into the visual arts was at age four when his mother bought him a 35mm photography camera. Needless to say, the photos were horrendous.

Raised by two voracious filmgoers and never staying in one city for too long, Krishnaraj's only constants growing up were cinema and television. He spent some time after high school interning at a production company and freelancing before graduating with a BA in filmmaking with a focus in writing and directing from the Met Film School in London.

Krishnaraj is always on the lookout for opportunities to collaborate creatively with talented filmmakers and tell meaningful stories.

His other interests include food, traveling and tennis.

Director Statement

Before I went to film school I thought I knew what kind of director I wanted to be. Two years later I realised how wrong I was. I've barely scratched the surface in terms of world cinema and filmmaking knowledge which is great because I'm constantly craving and learning something new. One thing I do know for sure is that I want to be a meaningful, reality driven storyteller. Which is why I made Roots, my most personal film and one that I hope will positively define the beginning of my filmmaking career. I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I did making it!
