Zero Budget Filmmaker
Abhishek Padmanabhan is an engineer turned filmmaker who works a day job as a content writer and uses his weekends to turn his films into reality.
His journey started off with a burning desire to learn how to write scripts. From there he got the call to acting. He followed that voice into an acting school where another voice said to him direction.
After culminating the powers of scriptwriting and acting he wrote a script called 'The Winning Mind' in 2015, but had no idea how to make a film. With no money and no hope, he fell into a pit of despair, until he found a book called ' Rebel Without A Crew'. In the book he read about how you don't need an elaborate crew of technicians and huge budget to make a movie.
You just need to pick up a camera and shoot. From there on he started binging on any information related to filmmaking and ended up shooting eight short films in a year. He is now producing his first feature film with the students of his filmmaking workshops.
