Big Vision Films: Interview

The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

BELIEVE,  "Before any body can believe in you, you gotta believe in your self first".

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

I’m a Filmmaker

Why do you do what you do?

I have a Vision and I want to make a difference. 

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

I always liked visuals and colours. I got the chance to direct my first short in high school, I enjoyed the whole process, Pre production, Production and Post Production, since that day I've been a student and a fan.

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

Toughest thing I had to overcome, was being a full time student in college and being a young entrepreneur. School was demanding too much of my time and I find myself going on set rather than staying home and reading books but I did it - finished school and now only my focus is on directing.

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

I was inspired by success, everyone who was doing the same thing I was doing and they were successful at it, that just made me grind harder. I believe Ive inspired a couple of minds and i’m happy when I see them doing good.

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

One mistake that i've made, will probably be not investing money in my craft early on.

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

I’m working on a short film, so be on the look out for that, can’t give a lot of details but it's coming.

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

Dream BIG, have a vision and take action. "Vision without action is just a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world." 

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

“If it ain’t BIG, it’s little” thank you.
