As Michelle Obama said, "You may not always have a comfortable life and you will not always be able to solve all of the world's problems at once but don't ever underestimate the importance you can have because history has shown us that courage can be contagious and hope can take on a life of its own".
About Pranav Pingle:
All my schooling was done here from the Hyderabad Public School, Begumpet. I then completed my Bachelors in Mass Communication from St. Mary’s College, Yousufguda. For my Masters, I studied Film and Television Production at the University of Bristol in England.
I have always been a Cricketer, from school to university. I was selected to play at the district level and state probabales. I was even a swimmer and was selected for the nationals.
Through college here in Hyderabad, I began developing a keen interest in theatre as well. I performed in four plays over the three years
I have been inclined to this creative work from a very young age. I was a complete outdoor child and my interest in this field began with my father’s influence. My mind was made up when I saw “Life is Beautiful” for the very first time.
I developed eight films while pursuing my one-year masters degree in England. They ranged from drama to documentary to comedy. My roles in these eight films varied between Cinematographer, Producer, Director, Assistant Director and Actor. I even won best Cinematographer. I met many people from around the world who gave me a vast range of perspectives and ways to look at things. I was given the opportunity to understand various filmmakers and their approaches. I interacted with professional actors, gaining different responses and suggestions to scripts. I was exposed to world-class equipment and knowledge.
But the journey for me has just begun. I came back to Hyderabad and started Mirage Media. “Abeer: A Fatal Nuance” was my first film under Mirage Media and “Handle With Care” is my second. Both have been for social causes.
For these, I played the roles of the Director, Cinematographer and Actor.
My aim now is to make a few ad films to gain more experience and knowledge. Soon after that I hope to develop a feature film for the Indian diaspora, for which I have already begun work. I look forward to the response and eagerly await the day it is completed.
