My journey started with working with @memrblue, an artist based in Amsterdam. We would make artistic photos and clips in Amsterdam and outside of Amsterdam with various equipment that we bought ourselves. This experience gave me a basis of how to work with cameras, and we will still continue to do this now.

I am also expanding my skills at SAE Institute Amsterdam by undertaking a BA in Digital Film Production from 2019-2021. With this Bachelor, I gain the ability to tell stories more effectively.

I have also allied a teacher to film 'Into The Woods Festival', which was a part of the Amsterdam Dance Event.

A small clip, I made in the Amsterdam Light Festival featuring @memrblue.

In this blog, I will discuss my current strengths and weaknesses and highlight key areas that I need to develop.

By making a short film all by myself, I have come to the realisation that pre-production is as important as production itself and post-production. I value all three stages in the same way, because if one stage goes wrong it will have an effect on the others.

One of the other strengths that I have developed by working in teams in university and outside of the university is my communication. I aim to be as active as possible to make sure any team can rely upon me so that we can deliver high-quality films before our deadlines.

I have taken every opportunity to work with a variety of equipment that is industry standard, like the DSLRs, LED Go and Black Magic cameras. By working with these equipments, my capability of making a high-quality film has increased. 

Currently, my weakest points are audio and editing. I taught myself how to work with iMovie but now am working on mastering Final Cut Pro X, Adobe Premiere Pro or Davinci Resolve. I have no doubt that these weak points will become my strengths at the end of my bachelors.

Alongside my filming skills, I also write and speak fluent English, Nederlands and Punjabi.

In this blog, I will talk about an area of development (discussed in the previous blog) and how I will maximise the learning outcome in this area in order to reach my career aspirations.

The area, I want to develop my skills in the most swiftly, is the editing and colour grading side of filming. I can edit and colour grade, however, so far it takes me a lot of time. I would like to be faster in it. 

I have been working on my framing and creating my own style since the first time I had a camera in my hand. The framing and creating my own style is going pretty well. Nonetheless, it has only been a year since I started editing and colour grading my own footage.

I plan on editing more of my footage and using various editing softwares, to find the best software for my style. I am doing this by editing footage for University assignments and my own work. Having a hands-on experience on editing and colour grading using these softwares is for me the most effective way of learning as I put my aqquired skills into practise.

I am taking every University assignment, which involves editing any footage, very staidly.


The professional environment at the University gives me the chance to use different editing softwares installed on their Mac systems. Also, it allows me to learn how to handle pressure of deadlines and it give me the opportunity to work with other artists that have a different outlook on the end product.
