Local folk artist Varun Tiwari has established a studio for film makers in Sydney as cameramen, artists and other crew are unable to travel to shoot films due to the coronavirus restrictions.

In the current times challenged by the coronavirus outbreak, Punjabi folk artist-turned-film maker Varun Tiwari has established a full-fledged studio in Sydney to help those who are unable to travel for making movies.

Although it can be used by the wider community too, Mr Tiwari has kept a special focus on Indian themes.


Highlights:

  • Sydney’s Punjabi folk artist Varun Tiwari establishes film studio with focus on Indian themes
  • Equipment, artists, editors, consultants provided under one roof as COVID restricts travel
  • Studio also helps newbies gain experience in film making

Speaking to SBS Punjabi, Mr Tiwari said, “we have tried to establish something that can fulfil the requirements of movie makers by providing them with all essentials under one roof”.

“We also act as anchors for the services that we don’t have in our studio at the moment, but with our connections, we can easily provide them.

“We have a team of professionals, actors, editors, directors etc who have rich experience in the field of movie making,” he added.
