The Incomparable Work Of Filmmaker Roona Mukhopadhyay 

“Small town girl makes good!” That’s a twist on an old American phrase but it certainly fits Roona Mukhopadhyay. She did indeed come from a small town in India, Gorakhpur, and she has “made good,” so to speak. She is an established filmmaker who now lives in Los Angeles, California.

Who knew that just because a young girl in India who loved films and all things entertainment when she was growing up would eventually come to the hub of the movie universe and begin making a living at making films? Who knew that about Steven Spielberg or Martin Scorsese or anybody else who was crazy about movies when they were kids? Didn’t everyone fall in love with films when they were kids?

Well, the obvious answer is probably “Yes,” but if you dig a little deeper you may find that the really talented directors, writers and producers not only loved films but they were mesmerized by them. While it might have appeared that they were simply enjoying the flow of the story and the marriage of music, dialog and action up on the big screen, they were actually taking the movie apart in their minds, shot by shot and analyzing each frame.

Roona’s curiosity about what makes a film work is no different than the famous directors previously mentioned and her love for filmmaking is no less passionate. All that is plain to see when you realize that she came all the way from India to California just to learn more about the industry and to immerse herself in making films. And that’s exactly what she did.

After college, Roona worked on many films in India and in London and then she came to Los Angeles to attend The New York Film Academy, where she earned a Master of Fine Arts Degree in Filmmaking. She has since been working on movies and TV shows endlessly and building up quite a body of work. Perhaps the difference between Roona and other people who just love movies is that she was highly motivated to be a part of the film industry and to tell stories instead of just listening to them or watching them. After all, someone has to tell the story and someone has to want to hear it.
