Most directors will tell you that it’s one thing to imagine it inside ones head and it’s quite another thing to actually be able to pull it off. I was fortunate enough to be supported by @kaushal_dp who worked out a brilliant lighting design that aided the shot taking as well as @priyasuhass who understood that the design of the hospital needed to be porus, one space opening into another.
However, none of this would have been possible without our brilliant stedicam operators (we worked with 13)
Finally we synced up with @lakshmisha_75 who just danced around the set and created magic.
It would be unfair to not mention our drone operators @nilesha_films & @lens_pilot who now having worked with me on almost all our projects seem to know what I want even before I do.
The scene takes us into the setup of a hospital being overwhelmed by the number of people showing up in the instant aftermath of 26/11 attacks. The clip gives a brief insight into what one can expect from the highly acclaimed series.
