Amlan Datta Born 1971, Kolkata

Ideator. Director, Producer, Cinematographer...
‘Diploma in Films’ (Motion Picture Photography), Film & Television Institute of India (FTII), Pune, 1996

The earlier part of his professional life as a cinematographer had bestowed him with a wide range of experience, from commercials & corporate documentaries for India’s leading brands & industries to national & international Television projects. Of special mention is his engagement in 1999 with an American news agency WNL in the Middle-East as a technical director and cameraman to make a series of documentaries titled ‘Arabian Awakening’ that opened up his world view. He also has a few feature films to his credit, among which ‘Prohor’, directed by Subhadro Chowdhury won National Awards in 2003.

His independent films reflect strong social and political messages through simple human stories. He has constantly strived to explore wide spectrum of cinematic treatment. ‘Cockadoodle Do’ was a 3-minute short musical fiction while ‘BOM’ was a 2-hour long documentary without any non-diegetic music. His unique style of visual narrative that projects a distinictive signature, is shaped by his fascination for documentary format and his years of experience, Whether it is a TVC for WWF or a promotional video for National Literacy Mission the characteristic treatment makes them engaging and memorable for the audience.

His strength lies in artistic intuition and creative imagery. As a tribute to aesthetics of photography he has revived a century old view camera to create original photographic images. He runs a charity called ‘Bom Bom Charitable Trust’ and does social welfare activities in the far-flung mountain villages of Himachal Pradesh. With his concerns for environment he is also engaged in promotion of organic farming and as a founder of Bom Life looks after on field implementation of modern bio-organic farming practices.
