Curved Roads has a strong group of
production-experienced people with excellent credits behind them. Having an
Indian crew makes financial and logistic sense as the technical and creative
quality of domestic film crews has greatly improved. Additionally, because
of the strength of our script, we’ve recruited top-notch people with
international co-production experience.
Yatin Parkhani is a short format
director and TV editor with a strong indie film background. In New York,
Yatin’s worked on several features -- in production, sound design and post

for, among others, the Rosie O’Donnell Show, CBS, BET, NASCAR, and MTV.

many of Bollywood's biggest films at Muktha Arts and
now Prime Focus (where he focuses on DI). This

looks in pre-production, Navein brings his unique
pre-pro vision and post expertise to the producing team, ensuring Curved Roads a dramatic eye-catching look and flawless post-production work-flow.
