My name is Souvid Datta. The smiley guy at the top :)
For six years, I've been working as a narrative and commercial director, a writer, photographer and self-shooting documentary filmmaker. My work's taken me to over 50 countries, for clients spanning the editorial, broadcast and promo industries. I truly love what I do and here's what I've learnt.
Stories define our world
They can inspire and incite us, educate and even unite us. My aim is to realise more worthy  stories that earn a spot in everyday lives. As a creative director, I draw together skills of visual communication, interactive design and investigative reporting to deepen narratives and connect people. Stories should be forged as powerful instruments to engage minds. That's the vision I'm chasing.

Nowadays, I collaborate with forward-thinking brands, NGOs,
news outlets and production companies alike.

So - if you're curious, and keen to make your projects
more immersive  and impactful, drop me a line and
let's make something great together ;)
