I'm Vikash Rai, a filmmaker and an editor from India.
Throughout my life I have had a keen interest in visual story-telling, and ever since I started working straight out of school. This is the passion I have pursued and the skill I have honed. This led me to have over 20 years of experience in the multi-disciplinary field of Content Research, Live Events, Films and Television Production.
Raised and born in the City of Joy, Kolkata, West Bengal, I started my career at the age of 18 in the field of Content Research at Big Ideas, a Derek O’Brien & Associates Pvt. Ltd banner. After a year of Content Research, I was then upgraded to the production department where I always stroved in creating exhilarating and contemporary ideas to make shows more enthralling and exciting, which resulted in stimulating response from target audiences and clients. For over a decade as Senior Producer, Director and Design Head for all Live Events and Television shows at Derek O’Brien & Associates, I then assumed a leadership role in the production department, bringing dedication, passion, truck loads of artistic ideas, inspiring and motivating my fellow colleagues and employees.
I currently work as an Independent Creative Director and as Senior Video Editor. I have also produced branded and commissioned films in India and the Middle East. My work includes for television channels, companies and brands like Warner Media (UK), National Geographic Channel, TVS, Vice Media Group, Netflix, Meta, Prime Focus Technologies, InsightTV, Autodesk, Viacom, Rocky Mountain Institute (Colorado, USA), MTV & MTV Indies, Channel V, Kokuyo Camlin, NDTV, Blue Frog, Red Bull, Puma, Fox Traveller, Coke Studio India, Microsoft, Dell, UNICEF, BESTSELLER, Mercedes-Benz, Rajasthan Royals, NH7 Weekender and many more.
I love to work on building narratives and story-telling structures with other stakeholders in the process, whether they are fiction, non-fiction, documentary, or sports telecast. As a strategic visual designer, I like to tailor ideas that match the needs of directors, clients, brands, and projects, ensuring the highest standards of creative excellence and service.
