Ramshreyas Rao

Halfway through a Physics degree in Philadelphia, Ramshreyas Rao picked up a video camera on an internship and got hooked. Theoretical aspirations replaced by more theatrical ones, he returned to India after tacking on a Minor in Film and Video to his degree, and worked his way through an ad agency and a southern music channel to become the chief assistant director with Dungarpur Films. All this, only to realize that what he really loved about film-making was cinematography, the thrill he had experienced when he first picked up that camera.
