About Unni

I'm a cinematographer/DP based in the Bay Area, CA. Been in the industry for a couple of years and have worked on several different productions: documentaries, commercials, corporate films, narrative shorts, and indie features.

Born and raised in India, moved to San Francisco in 2006 to study photojournalism and documentary photography. After my education, I started my carrier as a freelance travel photographer for Lonely Planet Magazine – one of the largest print and online travel guidebooks and magazine publishers in the world. I also had the privilege to work as a documentary photo/videographer for several NGOs in the United States and abroad. I have won a few awards and recognitions for my documentary projects in Haiti and India.

I have had the opportunity to travel to over 23 countries and work with companies such as AARP, Humanity & Inclusion – Handicap International, Burger King, BYD, Calvin Klein, Harley Davidson, Modsy, Target, Madison Park, Ink+Ivy, Designer Living and many more. I have also done two independent feature films and multiple award-winning short films.

  • Degree of Comfort Weighted Blanket

    Degree of Comfort Weighted Blanket (2019)
    Commercial by Sync Design Inc. Cinematographer/DP Weighted blankets have become more and more popular over the past few years. Not only are they known for improving sleep, but they’ve also been shown to help with certain disorders such as anxiety and ADHD. As a matter of fact, they were originally developed as a type of therapeutics product for special needs individuals. Often used by occupational therapists, these blankets provide deep touch pressure stimulation, a form of tactile sensory input that produces a soothing and calming effect. While each of them is different, most weigh anywhere between 15 and 20 pounds. As far as where the weight comes from, they are typically filled with glass beads or plastic pellets, the latter of which you’d find in a Beanie Baby.
