I have known Sid since 2007, but we never really met for long or did any work together. I was introduced to this guy through another film maker friend called Rabi Kisku. However, Sid was present on the sets of Pancharangi in the Camera Dept, but we didn’t get to interact much during that project.

Thanks to the social media, we were kind of aware of the projects we were doing. So when Lucia was announced, he just shared some of his recent works. He had already worked on 2 feature films as the DoP and had shot them in the same style as I was planning to shoot Lucia. He is very experimental and I needed someone who would just jump in and shoot without much hesitation.

So that’s that. Hope our experiments together will show good results on screen. Trailers of some of the films Sid has worked on –
