About

Chiraag is an award winning, London born filmmaker working across TV Commercials, Branded Content, Documentary and Social Media.


As Shooting Director, Chiraag leads by example, managing teams on shoots as well as working independently. Visually, his style is cinematic, opting for shallow depth of field and movement where possible. In instances of dealing with sensitive contributors, Chiraag is always professional and adaptable to the environment.

Chiraag is experienced in all aspects of production, and can take on a project from concept to completion, including managing budget, crew, equipment and workflow.


I have had the pleasure of working with and alongside Chiraag for a number of years and there’s a lot to admire in the way he works; methodical, technically astute and versatile. He is extremely driven and passionate about what he does and I wouldn’t hesitate for a second in recommending him for any job - he will always exceed your expectations.

We wanted to create a promotional video to coincide with the launch of our brand, that would signal our arrival and connect with the core of our target audience. To say we are delighted to have worked with Chiraag is an understatement. Our launch video has currently racked up over 18,000 views and has received a great response, whilst expanding brand awareness and creating a foundation for us to continue to build upon.

I highly recommend the services and professionalism shown, and feel we have managed to strike up a collaborative creative partnership with Chiraag, that will evolve and grow organically long into the future.
