Sourav is a self-taught director, writer and actor. Sourav started writing, directing and acting in skits and plays that won awards routinely at School and University. Having trained as a neuroscientist, he finds the human mind and its yet unknown abilities as the most fascinating subject to explore through his work.
The philosophy that dictates his creativity is the essence of a meaningful ‘aftertaste', he wants to offer the viewers, through his work. His stories shine a spotlight on the 'less visible' in the society, are culturally inclusive and experiment with the obvious.
His first short film, an experimental animation, Trigger Love, drew attention to gun massacres, and was selected for the Beer Town Film Festival, UK (now FESTIVAL DEUX CANS ) in 2018. He has worked in the team of an award-winning cross-Atlantic project with Emmy award winning actor Vincent de Paul. Recently, he produced, directed and acted in the first of a trilogy of short paranormal thrillers (Katakuti [Tic tac toe]), produced entirely in India. The second part of this cross-border trilogy is currently in pre-production with planned production in the UK.
Sourav is working on the screenplay of 3 short films and 1 feature film at the moment.
He is keen to meet and collaborate with other like-minded filmmakers from around the world.
Katakuti (tic tac toe)
tic tac to (Thriller) Director, actor, producer In small town India, a typical Sunday in a working men's lodge starts with the curious news of a woman's possession, but soon unravels a roller-coaster of events.
Film (Short) Director, actor, co-producer, editor A social media addict takes us on a journey into the many ramifications of his conscious and unconscious mind diving in and out of reality - all through the course of a "LIKEMARE", just like a nightmare.
Film (short) Production asst. A man with a suggestible mind, who ends up marrying a second wife out of a desperate situation faces the consequences of it.
Film (Short) Director Trigger love, was my first short and my humble effort to bring to the attention of people in power or otherwise, what it could be like losing your own child to a freak gun-related accident like the one depicted in this short animation, except that, such incidents in real life are not accidents and are totally avoidable. The idea was to draw parallels to the sheer abruptness, senselessness and irreversibility of the event as shown in the animation to the gun massacres in real life.
