Bhavesh J Kapadia
Having come from a family with a generation of two brilliant cinematographers, it’s rather difficult to explain as to why you want to become a director . Soon Bhavesh managed to fool his family and joined Corcoise Films in 2005 as a very young production assistant and his journey went on as he assisted the most renowned directors at Corcoise Films which includes Prasoon Pandey over 120 commercials till one day a client decided to send a script for him to direct. Since then, he has directed over 40 commercials at Corcoise Films till he decided to move to Cutawayy Films for greener pastures.
Currently working as an Ad Film Director at Cutawayy Films and having directed over 100 films, his forte lies in the performance driven films and likes to explore the quirky and idiosyncratic expressions of emotions in his work and likes to keep it subtle and stylish. His work includes top brands for clients like Crompton Greaves, Coca Cola, Jubilant foods- Dominos, Yum foods – KFC and Pizza Hut, Google, Dabur, Nestle Nerolac and the list goes on. His 1st campaign at Cutawayy Films for Client Droom won an award at Goa Adfest but he blushed the most when his mentor Prasoon Pandey himself told him once that your film is looking better then mine.
Along with his journey in advertising, he will soon make his directorial debut with a wild and entertaining female-led comic thriller series to be produced by Roy Kapoor Films.
