Given a choice between giving up his camera or his passport, Ujjwal would probably spend a year trying to figure out which he thinks he could actually live without. As an engineer turned businessman turned filmmaker, Ujjwal’s spent a lot of time thinking about what he wants to be and what he wants to do, but in the end, what drives him is telling stories, whether they are his own or someone else’s. As a filmmaker, his pursuits have taken him across the world’s most extreme environments, from scorching deserts in Australia, to icy mountains in Iceland. Through Epik Studios, Ujjwal has told stories through the medium of film in different languages, styles, and formats, constantly evolving to better himself as a storyteller. In the future, he hopes to be able to create a film from every continent, and bring home many stories to tell.
