    About Shibani B.

    I love stories. I am a storyteller at heart, and telling unique stories drives me. We all relate in some form or another, and stories are the key to human connection. I make films to raise awareness among diverse audiences and inspire viewers to make positive contributions. For the past four years, I've worked as a film producer and editor on both local and international film shoots, including two feature documentaries. I work as a one-woman team to produce, shoot, and edit short format corporate films. I hunt for stories that humanize the marginalized, expose different angles of an argument, and impassion viewers to take action. I strive to help viewers understand people and emotions through beautiful images. I'm extremely hardworking and very adventurous. I enjoy taking artistic risks, challenging myself, and using my creativity to tell fresh, innovative stories.

    About Raaghav M.

    I'm a filmmaker from California in my 4th year at UC Berkeley. I spent my fall semester studying film at the University of Hong Kong (HKU), and will be graduating in May with a degree in Economics. I want to tell stories that recall emotions more difficult to express, through both narrative and documentary styles, and plan to use my directorial vision and editing ability to craft them. I've got a few shorts under my belt, along with various videos I've made for clients and myself. My most notable works can be found on my portfolio (http://www.raaghav.me). If anything, I'd love for you to check out my two shorts – one is a fiction x documentary hybrid shot in Hong Kong during the 2019 protests ("inertia"), and the other is a short experimental piece shot in New York City ("below"). I directed, shot, and edited both pieces. Besides film, I love listening to jazz, soul, r&b, hip-hop (and every combination of those few), being completely horizontal on grass when the sun is out, and climbing trees and rocks.

    About Daniel V.

    I am from Milan, Italy, and I immigrated to the US in 2009. In Milan, I achieved my bachelor's in Advertising as a copywriter then won a grant to join one of the finest film companies at the time, Central Productions. After a few steps in commercials, I joined a Post facility (Rumblefish) where I worked as an AVID editor (commercials, documentaries, TV Shows, you name it) in the pioneering years of NLE, the mid-'90s. After three years immersed in Post, I began to freelance and merge my advertising studies with my tech skills. I evolved professionally as a writer, video, and convention director across Europe for Fortune 50, as well as filming documentary footage in Tibet. Relocating to the US was a major change in my life. I went through a long immigration process and health challenges. From the time I arrived in the US to the time I received a life-changing green card, I endured years of unemployment due to Visa restrictions, and battled cancer at the bone marrow while being a stay-at-home dad to my newborn daughter. Such experiences shaped my approach to work in new ways– I’ve learned the literal meaning of resilience, increased my empathy, and try to make days meaningful and joyful. In 2016, I wrote and directed my first US short film called Thank You Rebbe. In 2017, at the age of 44, I received my green card and returned to collaborating and volunteering with film projects. Soon, I was helping nonprofits meet their filmmaking needs, and in 2018, I accepted a full-time position as a video director at the Jewish United Fund of Chicago. The first project I wrote and produced was a video raising awareness about anti-Semitism in the US. In 2020, I received a Silver Telly Award and a Midwest EMMY nomination for this video. In 2021, my short film Thank You Rebbe won the Best Jewish Film Award at the Cannes World Film Festival - Remember The Future competition. My professional expertise includes developing creative strategy, managing creative and production teams, and developing content for Arts, Broadcast, Corporate, Entertainment, and Non-Profit initiatives. My passion for storytelling led me to wear multiple hats, from founding niche social networks to directing videos and conventions. I love to travel and have developed projects in China, the Czech Republic, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, Russia, Tibet, and the USA.
