Hi All,
My name is Onkar and I am from India. I am a Geologist by profession. I am here because I have always been interested in creative pursuits and although I never really thought I could myself ever be a film-maker, would like to give it a try all the same! Nice to meet you all!

Hello, I'm Jennifer. I've been working on a documentary about my sister for the last 10 years. She is developmentally disabled and a fascinating subject. Right now we're collaborating on a video blog to foster discussion and interest in the project. I've worked in Film, Comedy and Video Games since graduating from UCLA. Some of the films that inspire me: Genghis Blues, The Sound and the Fury, Fast, Cheap and Out of Control, The Cruise.
