Sachin Ravindran’s Countless Skill Sets

Sachin Ravindran’s Countless Skill Sets

Every month, New York Art Life finds artists changing the game in the arts. There are individuals who constantly challenge the game and bring forward new visions that create eras and movements that define art in different time periods. Many of these artists carry more than one skill at once and handle their craft with delicacy while being tough at work. One of these artists is Sachine Ravindran, who we will introduce today.

Sachin Ravindran is a multi-disciplinary Media Professional. He is currently based in Edison, New Jersey while organizing and collaborating with artists at many other cities in the world. Sachin has been a top professional in the media industry for more than eighteen years, raising the bar for all artists in the field. His work is heavily focused on postproduction. Sachin has a great experience covering national and state politics, topics of human interest, sport and fashion events, business functions, news features, and many other stories that require heavy detail and editing to fit a specific narrative. His concentration is so amazingly detailed and specific, that he has also organized and arranged multi-cam set ups, channel integration, Vsat, Inmarsat, DSNG, and live view operations. But his career only continues; it is every artist’s dream to be able to juggle as many essential skills as a media professional. Sachin has also been active operating PCR and MCR and working on stories and scripts for documentaries. Furthermore, Sachin also develops stories and scripts for programs and shows he works on personally.

Currently, Sachin has been working at Streaming Pixels Media as the creative head. He is also the co-founder of the company, which produces shows and documentaries for different channels. The company also utilizes different tools to manage multi-camera productions. Sachin’s background also includes experience as a media consultant for channels such as Newsnation, NDTV, and Times Now. These channels went to Sachin for in-house productions of multiple channels as he offered his creative input for the variety of shows they had available.

Video Journalism and associate producing is also part of Sachin’s impressive background. He worked closely with the first team that launched Times Group’s Business Channel ET Now. He was sent off to find daily material in various ministries as well as corporate houses. His topics of coverage were general budget and board room meetings of leading corporate houses in India. This remarkably expanded his vision for material as he connected to different areas in the world for his work and worked with countless people of dramatically different backgrounds and interests. He had close work with many major events in which he shot and set up multi cameras for major programs. For instance, he shot for the series Indiamart Leaders of Tomorrow and set up the camera work for Lufthansa Pioneers of Tomorrow.

Being an associate producer was one of Sachin’s favorite areas of media production. He also handled the duties of a camera man for both N.D.T.V and Cameraman. At the first company, he shot many different news stories and he also became involved in making decisions at the pre-production level of things in addition to postproduction. The documentaries he became invested in also required his input as for the script and to coordinate PCR/MCR. Many of these documentaries were heart-wrenching and life-sized, such as the Aarushi Murder case, the BMW hit and run case, and many other murder cases that grabbed the attention of viewers for a long period of time. His work consisted of finding out important details and facts of stories that changed history forever. Sachin’s notable work also includes covering two seasons of IPL for NDTV. He recalls travelling intensely for this project.

Sachin Ravindran’s Countless Skill Sets

Sachin had deep passion for camera work and photojournalism from the very start. He was a cameraman for Sun TV Network in which he covered Daily News National as well as Kerala Centric where it happened in Delhi. He was also responsible for handling Srinagar Muzaffarabad bus service from the Indian Side and travelled to Kashmir to also work on related stories there as well. Many of his stories include the bomb blasts for which he was praised for his reporting as many of the shots were extremely exclusive and risky, close to the scene of which the incidents happened. These are testaments of how committed Sachin is to his work. Some of his other risky shots were from events such as Panipat Train Blasts, and Nandigram issue (in Nandigram West), Delhi’s doctor’s strike. On the flip side, Sachin has also been covering exciting events that were followed by the public closely. He covered the first two seasons of the Indian Premier League, which was a major event with countless numbers of viewers. Sachin also covered India Fashion week, the B.J.P. Silver Jubilee Celebrations, Santosh Trophy Football Tournament, and Asia Cup Women’s Hockey Tournament.

Just when you think Sachin’s work can’t get any more impressive than it already is, he breaks the barrier once more. Sachin has had extensive career success in many cities and venues around the globe. He has shot content such as the Mirae asset international media conclave, which was held at Seoul, South Korea as well as Hong Kong. This was part of his work for NDTV. He has also shot a special feature on the development and functioning of the automobile industry in the Netherlands as part of his projects at ET Now. Sachin has also worked independently in developing fantastic stories and narratives. He was working on Skoda Rapid advertisements, promotions for Nike, shooting content for Kingdom of Dreams Jhumru, and many others.

Sachin has been constantly making big steps on his way to an incredible narrative, which inspires all artists to do the same and to follow the passion in their heart. He’s worked in exciting venues, and in contrast taken vast risks to cover stories many people want to hear. But this is all part of bringing the dream of a passion to reality.
