About Pranjal

Born and brought up in Indore; I am an electronic media graduate, working as an independent and freelance filmmaker. In the initial days of my college, I co-founded an independent production by the name "Light Trails production" along with a group of like minded people. Under which, we have made a number of films, documentaries, music videos and commercials too.

I am a Director, Writer and Editor who have worked intensively in all the three aspects (Pre-Production, Production and Post-Production) of a number of audio-visual media works. From fiction to nonfiction, and advertisements to commercials, I have successfully created almost each and every type of audio-visual media work; Several of which have been part of, selected and won many local, national and International appreciations through film festivals and screenings across the globe.

Currently living in Indore and working on an independent and freelance basis, I am always either working on or looking for something unique, interesting and meaningful to create and work upon. I believe in working and collaborating with different people, exploring the new dynamics and possibilities, hence always eager and open to work with new people and new opportunities. For this purpose I go wherever the work leads me and have worked upon many different ideas, concepts and projects to successfully translate them on screen.

To sum up my passion, I am an all-arts driven person who keenly explores film making, writing (literature), photography and visual arts.

Unique traits: Fine Arts.

  • Life on the Streets - Yellow by ColdPlay

    Life on the Streets - Yellow by ColdPlay
    Music Director - Editor and Producer A month before lock-down we were making a children's short film. Shooting with three children for the film, we travelled to a lot of different places in the city. As it happens, we couldn't include large parts of the raw and documentary footage that we shot there, in the final cut of the film. So, being quarantined for more than a month, we decided to make a little music video using mostly the extra footage. Sharing it with all of you on the occasion of world labour day as the video explores the life of working class and street life mostly, following the lead kids of our short film. A little tribute to the young lives living there, specially in such tough times. Watch and share your views. Stay connected for the short film.
