Hi, I am Siddhant Joshi

Filmmaker | Photographer | Immersive Reality | Visual Story Teller |

About Me

Excitement,passion,beauty and surprise – those are the words that come to my mind when I think of filmmaking.

Always fascinated by moving images – as a child, I embarked upon my journey of visual storytelling in class 8th.

I started by making silly videos, editing them in After Effects while trying various themes such as HUD, muzzle shots, fire and text intros.

I gradually started developing visual sense and learnt how I can use all the tools to create impactful stories. Nevertheless, I took literature as my major to understand story telling.

360 Filmmaking

The 360 videos/films are a new form of visual storytelling. It is an innovative technique which has strong psychological impact on the viewers. I have been working in Immersive Reality filmmaking from past 2 years trying to understand the grammar of this new technique. I was trained by industry's top professionals when MGIEP UNICEF, a partner organization for United Nations, selected me for training to produce videos for their #kindnessCampaign.

I am neither especially clever nor especially gifted. I am only very, very curious. ― Albert Einstein
I think the root of every innovation stems from curiosity. "Curiosity" and habit to "question" things have taken me to places wherein I have explored the depths of various things I have undertaken. Apart from filmmaking, I am curious about computers, AI, machine learning, communication and human psychology.
