Making cinema because sense was found nowhere else.
Vishesh Mankal has been making short films since he was in college. His first film “Suicide” was made way back in 2006. It was this film that gave him direction and got him started on his journey. In 2008, his short film “Peacock” managed to make a splash at the festival circuit and gain some accolades. In 2009-2010, his short film “Not Born Heroes” was also met with critical acclaim. However, his official career only began when he started working on commissioned projects. He started his career making videos for small organizations and websites on a freelance basis and eventually became a full-time video editor (and part-time cameraman) at Yash Raj Films, one of India’s biggest production houses. Having honed his skills in a professional environment, he then went on to direct ads, corporate films, training films and so on for various companies and agencies. This helped him strengthen his reel and get his foot in the door. He is currently working on a documentary on tigers and is hoping to get his first feature film funded soon.
