Our Team

Rajiv Mudgal
VFX Department Head

I am an experimental Filmmaker. I grew up in Bombay. As an Indie-Filmmaker who absolutely loves his job and everything that comes with it.
I started using CG tools early in my career and produced India’s first 3D animated serial for UTV. This lead me into the fascinating world of Rotoscoping, Paint, Keying, Cleanup, Tracking-Matchmove and Rig Removal very early on.

As the Creative Director of DarkWhite, I appreciate the raw reality of everyday life, the fleeting beauty of those in-between moments, and I do my very best to take every film with that in mind.

Shaily Mudgal
Animation Department Head

As a child artist I have enacted in a number of radio plays for children that were broadcast, on the All India Radio Mumbai. I ventured into the world of TV after graduating from commerce stream. I was one of the executive producer for the successful detective serial ‘Tiger’ which was telecast on Mumbai Doordarshan.

I have been one of the co-producer for ‘Mahabharat ki Mahabharat’ which was ‘The Making of’ B .R . Chopra’s mega epic ‘Mahabharat’, a relatively new concept in India at that time.

Now I find myself enjoying the wonderful new world of 3D. I am 3D animator specialising in character and creature animation.

Currently we are working on two serials, one is an action science fiction for the young kids with heavy use of CG and the other contains lots of 3D characters and creatures based around mythical folklore.

We also have a feature film in pipeline for which we begin shooting later this year, which again makes a heavy use of Green screen compositing and VFX.

Being the VFX people has its advantages.

Kirit Kiran
Editorial and Cinematography Department Head

I am an aspiring filmmaker who started out as a journalist with prominent dailies of India. After dabbling in theatre and advertising, and, working as an Arts and Culture writer, I shifted focus to my dream – Cinema. I have worked as a photographer, a pathway to my expression. I have been a part of several international projects, the recent most being a book on Martial Arts that took me from the southernmost tip of India to the famous Shaolin Temple in China. There is much to learn and seek and my journey has just begun.
