A collection of anecdotes by individuals, just like us, doing what they love
"By the time I was 14 I had lived in 7 different cities. My family was always moving and my sibling and I had very little time to form deep friendships. Therefore my escape was reading. Till the end of my English bachelors I desired to write. I joined Jamia Mass communication with an aspiration that it will give me an opportunity to write and very little information about what the school actually taught. We started learning photography. This led to our first project, telling a 3 min story through still images. By doing it I realized I extremely enjoy telling stories. By continuously pursuing the visual medium I discovered I was a much better visual storyteller.
Filmmaking is a challenging pursuit. It does not yield results immediately. I was very clear that I wanted to tell stories that moved me. Stories that are authentic to human experience in this world. The first hurdle was not doing anything other than pursuing filmmaking. Everyone around me was focused on getting a job and making a living. My focus was very different; I wanted to make a living pursuing my passion. Therefore, I had to figure out a way that would allow me to do that. This led to the formation of Red Stone Films. It gave us the space to tell stories we would like to tell the world. My early two years of entrepreneurship were a wrestle with my confidence as a female entrepreneur. Nothing was good enough and there was a constant need to over-compensate. This drove me towards developing an authentic voice. This leadership voyage was a discovery of who I was and who I wanted to be."
