About Shravan

Shravan Vidyarthi is the founder of Intersect, a global video and photo production company. We make it easy for corporations and nonprofits to tell great stories anywhere in the world. Why “intersect?” Because we defy boundaries and love bringing ideas and people together. We help our clients define their creative vision, and bring it to life with seamless shoots and artful post-production. Recently we’ve been on location in Colombia, Ethiopia, Ghana, Jamaica, Senegal and Rwanda for clients like Land O’Lakes and the MasterCard Foundation, and we are excited to see where our work takes us next. Intersect was founded by Shravan Vidyarthi, a filmmaker and photographer based in New York and his native Nairobi, Kenya. His documentaries have screened on PBS and at MoMA, appeared in The New York Times, and won awards at international film festivals. Shravan has broad experience in the developing world, and speaks English, French, Swahili and Punjabi.

    The CNN Heroes series profiled Minneapolis’ Vednita Carter, who has helped more than 6,000 victims of sex trafficking. Once a former sex worker herself, Vednita has built an army of survivors who have joined her crusade to end sex trafficking. Taking an empathetic approach to a difficult subject, we worked to make the women comfortable on camera while also protecting their identities.

    The USAA, a leading financial and insurance provider for the military community, wanted to show their dedication to military families. Working with VSA Partners in Chicago, Intersect profiled Gene Kranz, former NASA flight control director for Apollo 13. We shot in Houston and worked closely with NASA to get access to locations and archival footage.

    EcoPlanet Bamboo aims to convince major corporations like WalMart and IKEA to trade timber for ecologically-sustainable bamboo. Intersect helped EcoPlanet define its pitch—contrasting the deforested slopes of Vancouver Island with lush bamboo plantations in Nicaragua and South Africa—and make the case for many of bamboo’s potential uses. We produced the spots from beginning to end.
