He started his journey in the Animation Industry armed with a BFA and a Diploma in animation film-making, and inspired by Disney's traditional storytelling and their electrifying characters. He walked the path of animation and live action for 19 years, exploring various film formats along the way, including visual scripting and visual development. Having discovered that his strength lay in Direction, he has now graduated into a full time Director. His best works include those done for Mr Shekhar Kapur (Director:Elizabeth)
and, on various DreamWorks projects, including Puss In Boots and Madagascar 3.
“Art, not only represents the outward appearance of things but their inward significance too”. Looking at Ramana’s work, this feels so true. Not only he has worked in many famous films but has also made some of the finest artworks.

Living Idle is my debut short film. With the earlier experience of working under Hollywood director Mr. Shekar Kapur, I attempted this short film. I wanted to do an emotional short film in feature film standards, with a main idea of holding the emotions of audience through out the movie without any distraction or deviation. So, I took enough care in all aspects of the film, starting from pre-production, casting, cinematography, editing, art direction, music etc without compromising on any minute details.
I hope I achieved the desired result and will connect the viewers as well
