Meet Anukriti Singh of SB Films in Burbank

Today we’d like to introduce you to Anukriti Singh.

So, before we jump into specific questions, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I’m from India. I’m a freelancer Director, writer and Production designer. My all-time favorite movies are P.S I love you, Titanic, Inception, The silence of the lambs and Pulp fiction if you count Bollywood movies it’s Mughal-e-azam, Pyaasa by Guru Dutt, Highway and Gullyboy. I come from a very small village Yuvrajpur, in India but currently my family lives in Mumbai.

I have a joint family and most of the family members work for Indian television. I have done bachelors in Bachelor Of Management studies and I wanted to do MBA but while studying, I realized I’m not made for 9 to 5 Job and I started working as an assistant director just after my bachelors and I never looked back after that. I worked for many popular TV shows for three years but I was not satisfied because of repeated and restricted style of TV. I wanted to explore and learn different style of filmmaking and one day I found about NYFA Los Angeles. I asked my Father about coming here, he said yes and I’m here. I just shot my thesis film and it has turned out really good and I’m planning to send it to festivals. I’m so motivated and looking forward to work on more projects in the future.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Honestly, I’m blessed because I have great family. My father, he never forced me for anything, he supports me for everything I do. I’m kind of lucky because whoever I have worked with they have always appreciated my work and motivated me to do my best. So till now, I haven’t experienced any struggles so indeed It has been a smooth road.

We’d love to hear more about your work and what you are currently focused on. What else should we know?
I work as a freelancer but yes my father is planning to start a production company – SB Films. My goal is to direct film, commercial and music videos. But for short terms, I’m good with production design and currently, I have worked on three sets as an AD so I’m good with that also.

Any shoutouts? Who else deserves credit in this story – who has played a meaningful role?
Everyone needs a role model, mine is my parents and my grandparents. They have been great source of knowledge, support, love, and kindness. Whoever I’m or I’ll be, I’m always gonna be their reflection. I come from a state where it’s really hard for a female to get an opportunity to study abroad. Women doesn’t have a really respectful place in the society, they are still fighting for their rights and equalization. I’m so thankful that I have a really cool family my grandma and grandpa they always say they have seen California on the map and I live there, they are so proud of this. My father and mother, they never talk negative and always supports me in any circumstance which is great. It helps me to be a better person and be truthful towards my duty.
