We can work with you through every aspect of the project - from fleshing out the story idea and storyboarding, to filming, editing, and final rollout to your audiences. It does not stop here, we also provide specific services like building your brand identity through graphic design, brand placement and website development.

Mohit Arora, Cinematographer and Editor

Mohit started out on his journey as a filmmaker in 2017 in Auroville, an experimental township in south India, where he was spellbound by the ideas of sustainability and social impact. Having studied mass media, he felt it was natural to use film as a medium to capture these ideas and create impact through media. Thus, he started making ‘zero-budget’ films for grassroots organizations across India. Since then he has directed, shot, and edited multiple short-format documentaries and videos with the simple aim of creating a more just, equitable, and sustainable future. Mohit has worked with agencies such as OML and WATconsult in Mumbai and directed videos for organisations like ecofemme, The Real Elephant Collective, Keystone Foundation and the Timbaktu Collective.

He was one of the co-directors on the short documentary film, "Made in Madras" that won the People's Choice Award and Overcoming Obstacles Award at the 2019 MyHero International Film Festival in L.A.
