Director Amit Gupta has worked in the U.S., India, East Asia, and the Middle East, shooting commercials, music videos, and films. With a network of contacts spanning the globe, he works closely with some of the world's most talented industry professionals to bring bold, creative ideas to life on the screen.
Known for his offbeat sense of humor and unusual approach to the fine art of directing, he can generally be identified on set by his unruly locks which become increasingly wild as the day progresses.
His commercial work has earned him the Mosaic Award from the American Advertising Federation, and the Telly Award for excellence in television commercials. His film "The Guardian's Gateway" has screened at the Kids First! Film Festival, the largest festival for children and family films in the world, and the Hollywood International Student Film Festival.
Currently based in Bombay, Amit holds an MFA in Film and Television from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, California. Alongside his future aspirations in the profession he loves, he also anticipates the day he will acquire a jetpack, and own and operate his very own micro-brewery.
