SUSTAINABLE IDEALISM: REALITIES OF FILMMAKING
30 May 2018 | Don Aravind in dialogue with Andie Chen
Don Aravindâ€™s steady career exemplifies the endeavour of the working creative â€“ consistently making films for over ten years with an unwavering cultivation of his creative streak. He straddles both film and television with a keen understanding of both mediums, finding a balance that fuels his versatile oeuvre. Don has established himself as a go-to television director with extensive output over different channels; his short films present the everyday â€“ an en bloc debate, the struggles of family loss â€“ and are universally relatable in its explorations.
With seasoned actor Andie Chen, whose career in the commercial and independent realms mirror Donâ€™s, the two share candidly about the working realities of the film and television industries and the desire to sharpen themselves with each new artistic challenge.
