The first video i ever made was with a $100 Action camera I bought with all my christmas money from that year. I edited it using free software on my mum’s laptop and I’ll admit, I used a coldplay backing track.
as you can imagine, it was terrible.
that being said, I was incredibly proud of it because now I forever have 15 year old Jagan’s memory of Australia day 2012.
The real magic of cinema is simpler than fancy cameras and visual effects; the real magic of cinema is emotion, captured on film to last, and be enjoyed for lifetimes to come.
THIS IS HOW I LIKE TO MAKE FILMS; TO tell stories and capture genuine feelings, WHILE KEEPING THE PROCESS AS STRIPPED BACK AS POSSIBLE.
When I’m not shooting couples, I’m either surfing, annoying my friends trying to take Their portraits for the 1000th time, or up at 2am, 4 hours from home taking photos of star trails. **or Eating Pastries..
