Karthic, an automobile engineer by qualification and a former vehicle testing engineer quit his job in a global automotive firm to become a documentary filmmaker. His vision has been to craft compelling true stories on nature, environment, science and society. His first film Shining Lakes of Kancheepuram was made with minimal equipment- an iPhone and a Lapel Mic.
In order to learn the ropes of factual filmmaking he is currently pursuing postgraduate studies in Science & Natural History Filmmaking at the Centre for Science Communication in University of Otago, New Zealand.
Karthic, aspires to make films that have a potential to bring positive change and will strike a chord with common people and policymakers alike. Films aside, he is also a birdwatcher, has volunteered for conservation of critically endangered vultures and a distance runner.
