After completing her B. Tech in Electronics & Communication, Soumita decided to pursue her long time passion for filmmaking. She joined one of India's top film schools to study Direction & Screenplay Writing. She has shot, written and directed several short films, documentaries and music videos. She has worked as editor and assistant director in a few projects as well.
Film school also gave birth to her love for travel and photography. She feels photography is a form of expressing everything that one cannot put into mere words. For her, it is the ultimate form of taking a break from one's mundane life. Her main interest lies in capturing beautiful landscapes and people in their most candid moments.
