Siddhant Paul, India
I am a student filmmaker and pursuing my Bachelor of Media Studies (BMS) from Symbiosis Institute of Media & Communication (UG), Pune. I want to make films which possibly will move you, set you thinking, surprise or shock you or just amuse you. Documentary films have always inspired me because they are candid and genuine. They bring out pure human emotions and nothing can bring you closer to a story as a real life character, a real hero.
Video Volunteers is a great platform for me to understand the basics of documentary filmmaking as well as the intricacies and sensitivity involved in making one. I am amazed and inspired to see the potential the Community Correspondents of VV have. They are not only efficient communicators but also exhibit courage by standing up and speaking out against unjust practices. VV is stirring up a huge movement with every video of theirs that goes online, and I am happy to have an opportunity to contribute to it.
