We had the good fortune of connecting with Armaan Lucknowala and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Armaan, what led you to pursuing a creative path professionally?
The reason I choose a career in film is because it’s the only art form that combines all the mediums together. Visuals, Music, Set Design, Wardrobe and etc. It allows people to have a creative voice and make content however they seem is right. It allows them to have freedom of speech, tell real life stories and impact or change how someone feels or perceives something.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I am originally from Bombay, India and moved to Los Angeles to pursue my Bachelors in Filmmaking at the New York Film Academy. I love directing, writing and producing. I’ve directed and wrote two short films in Los Angeles, which are in the running for prestigious film festivals. The stories I enjoy exploring are very real-life stories, which are thrilling and entertaining. My end goal is to eventually run my own production company which is based in Los Angeles and Bombay.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
My favourite spots in the city are the beaches during the summer and scenic hiking trails
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to dedicate my shoutout to my parents, family and my friends who have supported me and my work, and always pushed me into doing better.
