Hello, thank you for stopping by. 

I am Suruchi Sharma - a filmmaker, creative entrepreneur, media educator from Jaipur.

I am founder of boutique production house Studio Ainak and an annual residential screenwriter's mentoring program called - Rewrite.

Director of several documentaries including the national award winning Meen Raag, I am also the director of India's first folk docu-series "Equals". My work revolves around ideas and conversations and I seek to celebrate the various facets of culture and learn something along the way. I have just finished my short fiction "Gagan Gaman" - a foray into fiction Seven years after "Sandhya" and currently I am developing my first feature film. 

Open to collaborations on short term content, non fiction series and part time teaching and mentoring programs. 

Please explore more about my work below,

where I speak about myself in third person :)
