What are you up to now and what’s next for you?
It’s always better to bounce ideas of someone to make them better. I don’t think there has been a single time when working as a team hasn’t made a project, an idea, or even a shot better. It also takes a lot of pressure off one’s shoulders.

What would be your dream project?
We’d love to start working with VR in a narrative way. We would love to find a way to make use of it as new format rather than just as a gimmick. It would be great to find a project that fits the medium so well that the story can only be told in VR.
What’s been the key to your success?
What’s the most exciting thing you’ve worked on since being shortlisted?
Competitions and awards put you on the map. Being shortlisted for the Next Director Award also meant we got introduced to a mentor from the industry. It was very interesting to talk to him. Over a year later, we are still in touch and sometimes we call him up when we have questions about fees, productions, etc.
The D&AD Next Director Award unearths the best new talent and promotes it back into the industry. The competition is open to new directors with less than two years professional experience.
