Behind the scenes
Currently, Yeshi alone is the sole proprietor of all the photographs and videos released thus far under his production brand. “I do the camera works, editing and designing of my own,” he said. “I hire people only when more men force is required.”
As an amateur production brand, Yeshi said, it is hard to convince the people that filmmaking requires a huge amount of time and resources. “Some people expect the videos and photographs of them to be designed free of cost,” he said. “However, making films and taking photographs is one among the digital businesses. Those videographers and photographers have to make a living out of such business. Thus, I charge a minimum fare from my clients on my every videos and photographs.” He added.
“Yeshi Lhendup developed a passion for filmmaking ever since he directed and edited a movie called #Nga Gawi Bum in his final year in college.” -Radio Valley, Bhutan.
As an aspiring and young A/V (audio-visual) enthusiast, Yeshi has attended the 8th Dhaka Cine workshop and also the 16th Dhaka Film Festival in Bangladesh earlier this year.
