Sai Akhil started making films when he was 17 years old. Read on to know more about this young and talented filmmaker.
Tell us about your life journey in brief?
My love for films began when I was 17 years old. My brother encouraged me to make short films when I told him that my dream was to make good films or act in good films. The ideas that I had for projects couldn’t take form due to lack of equipment and the like. Luckily, I met a classmate who was as enthusiastic about films as I was. That led to the birth of our production house ‘Unique Films’.
What prompted you to become a film maker?
I personally love Mr. Productions- A Tollywood production house. They have inspired me to follow my dream of film making.
Tell us about your team? If you have?
We started the production house as a group of friends who were equally enthusiastic about film making. Some of my team members are- Akash Patnaik(My Brother), Sudhanshu, Shivam, Raunak, Avinash, etc.
How many/ what kind of movies/ videos you have made?
We’ve made three short films till now, out of which two are on societal issues, and one is a comedy.
We are also releasing soon, a short film called ‘Youngistan baba’ which is a comedy.
What are your dreams/ visions?
My dream is to become a successful and good actor/director.
What difficulties you face as a film maker?
Lack of knowledge is a great difficulty as we are just beginners. And lack of support is something which is a great difficulty.
What inspires you or keeps you going?
My parents and some short film makers I admire like Subash Chandra, Dheeraj Raju and Sabarish Kandregula.
Any fun/ memorable incident?
Any moment that we get praised is a memorable moment for us.
What advice would you like to give to someone who is interested in filmmaking?
Do what you want to do.
Everyone has to face difficulties but don’t give up. Trust yourself, try something new, and don’t get disappointed with your work.
Remember that one day the sun will rise to give light to your future.
