Director Biography - Pratham Saini

Hey there, I'm Pratham Saini, a filmmaker who has been immersed in the world of visual effects and animations for the past seven years. However, my true passion lies in writing and directing movies. Over the last four years, I've been fortunate enough to bring my creative visions to life on the silver screen.

Growing up as a cinephile, I found inspiration in the works of incredible directors such as David Fincher, Sam Esmail, Michael Mann, and Christopher Nolan. Their ability to craft thought-provoking narratives and push the boundaries of storytelling has had a profound impact on my own approach to filmmaking.

While my journey initially revolved around visual effects and animations, I recently took a leap of faith into the realm of live-action filmmaking. It's an entirely different ballgame, especially when you're working with a zero budget. But I've embraced the challenge head-on, determined to prove that creativity and resourcefulness can transcend financial limitations.
