To me, talking to people is the fastest way to learn. When I do these 5-question interviews with artists and creative professionals, I get to learn from their life's journey, and then share that learning with you.
Below, you can learn how Indian jewelry mogul AMRITA SINGH earned her place in New York's fashion industry, how chef VIKRAM VIJ overcame stereotyping and negative messages to follow his passion for cooking. You can read how painful it can be as an artist, as expressed so eloquently by painter CHANTEY DAYAL, or how NYC photographer PUNAM BEAN found her way to the camera lens.
Hearing someone’s voice, their particular way of saying something, while seeing their facial expressions and gestures, are all the gifts of motion picture. The 5-question format is meant to draw out a subject’s wisdom and spirit, and the end product is intended to be something engaging, sophisticated and short so people want to watch and share it.
