Anmol understands cinema. Like most children, he spent countless hours enthralled by its power to transform the black-on-white monotony of text, or the hazy phantasmagoria of imagination, to an immediately palpable reality.
It’s a small wonder then, that as a precocious fifteen-year-old he began apprenticing with legendary ad filmmaker Robert John Pinto. While skills such as intercutting moved from his technical vocabulary to his technical repertoire, the deeper language of film-making revealed itself through the collaborative efforts of the team, and the synergistic evolution of the values which became embedded in film. Intent on learning more, Anmol studied film production in Los Angeles where he attained his bachelors degree.
Living in Los Angeles, the “Entertainment Capital of the World”, he quickly moved into the professional space- working with Warner Bros. Television and, the California Film Commission, and editing short films like KAVI: Behind the Scenes with Oscar nominee Gregg Helvey, and The Seawall with Cannes competition nominee Mason Richards. He describes how he was “a runner on a large TV show one day and an editor of a no-budget short film on another” and adds that “I grew with every project and every person I met. Meeting people from different parts of the world and diverse walks of life, I began to understand empathy at a profound level- something that has helped me be a better filmmaker.” He was invited to Kingston University London, earning a masters in management of the creative industries and creative economy with highest distinction.
Films directed or edited by Anmol have been screened at films festivals worldwide- including his acclaimed short film Maya, which was selected for the Cannes film festival in 2013. Yet, he doesn’t see cinema as a means for fame- it means too much to him, and he knows his audience deserves to be challenged and to be inspired.
Anmol comes with an extraordinary portfolio and knowledge of branded content videos, live action events and advertisement films. His clients include Raymond, Eureka Forbes, Red Bull, Pidilite, Procter and Gamble, Bisleri, Twitter and more.
He currently resides in Mumbai and works as a video producer, editor and director across the globe.
