I always wanted to find a way to express my stories in a better way. Writing was my weakness until I took the camera in my hand. Since 2015, I started to work as a professional photographer and also in various projects of Digital Media. This section of my portfolio contains my works related to Digital Media.
Awesome Assam with Sarah Todd
Worked as an executive producer for this travel film aired in National Geography and Fox Life, on behalf of Halcyon Media Pvt Ltd (a Mumbai based company). This was a project done in the year 2016. This was a film having a travel story of famous Australian super model and celebrity chef Sarah Todd, traveling across the beautiful land of Assam. This was a commissioned program done for Assam tourism under the brand name of Awesome Assam.
Act East- Guwahati Advantage
Worked as Associate director as well as production manager. This was a project where my company Ziatra Creatives Pvt Ltd handled the line production, which was produced by Halcyon Media Pvt Ltd. A strict deadline-based project, where we completed this promotional movie for Gauhati Smart City limited, on the occasion of Investors summit,2017, within just 10 days. This film was done in January,2017.
I wrote this story, developed the script as well as directed this promotional film. Pragati is all about four stories of hard work and success. This film was developed for National Diary Development Board (NDDB) and WAMUL (Purabi Dairy). Here we showed how Purabi dairy and NDDB worked hard to develop the different segments of lives of people of Rural Assam. Four stories covered four different elements like, solving the problem of educated unemployment, increased productivity of milk, women empowerment and community livelihood. This film was produced by Exclusive Advertising Pvt Ltd and line production done by Ziatra Creatives pvt ltd.
Assam is lacking behind by far in the filed of milk production and dairy farming in comparison to states like Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab etc. One of the major reasons is unavailability of high breed animals at a lower cost. Most of the farmers from Assam do not have high buying power to be able to procure highbred animals from out side the state. And if someone does that still have to face lots of problems during the animal is transit period. So NDDB and Purabi Dairy has tirelessly been trying to popularise Artificial Insemination among the farmers in Assam. This film is about AI and its various aspects. I had to develop this story in such a way so that even the illiterate rural farmers can understand about the subject in detail. I conceptualised and wrote the story, developed the script and directed the film. This film was produced by Exclusive Advertising Pvt Ltd and line production done by Ziatra Creatives pvt ltd.
Selling of loose milk and consumption of the same has always been causing a lot of Socio-economic problems in our country. Apart from this, it is also creating some health hazards for the consumers, in various times. One of the main reasons of it is lack of general people’s conception and understanding about Pasteurised packaged milk and how safe it is. NDDB and Purabi Dairy wanted us to make a film where we can briefly mention about the entire process of pasteurisation, its benefits, risk involved while consuming loose milk, economic draw backs etc through this film. Like the other films here also I wrote the story, developed the script and directed this film. This film was produced by Exclusive Advertising Pvt Ltd and line production done by Ziatra Creatives pvt ltd.
As we all know productivity of each individual dependent upon various factor and balanced diet is one among them. The same logic applies for animal husbandry also and specially in Dairy farming. This film aimed at informing the concept of Ration balancing, its benefits, ill effects of feeding animals without having a proper diet schedule and how NDDB and Purabi Dairy is working towards this cause in rural Assam. I wrote this film, developed the script and directed it. This film was produced by Exclusive Advertising Pvt Ltd and line production done by Ziatra Creatives pvt ltd.
Towards a change
This is a film developed for the most prestigious health brand of lower Assam, Sarathi Multi-speciality Hospital Nalbari. Management of this hospital already has a very popular hospital, Nalbari Maternity Hospital and people from lower Assam are not aware that the same management has started the brand Sarathi. So, my task was to establish the relationship between Sarathi and Nalbari Maternity hospital and establish the stories of each of the person from management. I was responsible for the story, script and direction. For me this was the most challenging job till now. Production done by Ziatra Creatives pvt ltd and completed the film in September,2019.

The Writer in to me
I belong to such a family, where almost all the members are associated with writing and literature. Though I also started writing at an early age, but could not continue.
