As a part of our new series Secret Superstars, we will celebrate the work of a film technician every month. The idea is to tell film lovers that there are many more crew members on a film set other than the director and lead actors who are crucial to the filmmaking process. We start this series with Sudeep Chatterjee an FTII graduate who has films like Chak De India, Bajirao Mastani, Dor, Dhoom 3, and most recently Padmaavat to his credit. In this video, we get to know a little about Sudeep’s role on a film set, what he enjoys about his job, films that have influenced him and advice for upcoming cinematographers.
