MESSAGE OF THE MONTH

In conversation with Shiva Prasad (Segment 02)
Award-winning filmmaker on mobile phones

Shiva Prasad is a Mumbai-based management graduate in international business. He chose filmmaking as his career, and worked in Indian and British films. He also worked as a creative researcher for the Hindi feature film Irada, which won the Indian National Award in 2018. He has also been rated as a top photographer on Google Maps. As an extension to his passionate interest in anything smartphone, Shiva is an active stock video producer for leading agencies across the globe.

Shiva tasted success as a filmmaker in the year 2013, when he was stranded in the Uttarakhand flash floods. He managed to survive that and captured nature's fury in great detail on his smartphone. (That was all the shooting kit he had with him at that point.)

He titled this film "Himalayan Tsunami" and demonstrated that professional documentary films can also be made with a smartphone. This film won him the second prize in the International Mobil Film Festival in San Diego. “Himalayan Tsunami” was also nominated at other mainstream film festivals, in addition to being part of smartphone film festivals in Australia, Canada, USA, Argentina, South Korea and Mexico.
