The focal point of Indian Art or even Global Art due to its massive appeal and reach is Cinema and is Dravida's major forte.
We revel in the multi dimensionality of a storyline. We apply this in the making of a Cinema, adding layers and sub layers to the story igniting the conscience of the audience to reveal the layers every time they are watching it.
Dravida's initial contribution to the world of art has been Short Films. An abstract art form unlike a Feature film, with shorter durations and stronger messages, we have been known in this space for our punch packed delivery of short films with subjects as diverse as relationships, personal perspectives, socio-political satires etc.

Creating a documentary is a unique proposition as opposed to creating a cinema, as the latter is based on fiction where creativity, imagination, reality and technicality all blend in to mirror the facts. Documentary on the other hand is a "fact based" representation. It takes a lot of courage, perseverance and technical expertise to ensure that the facts with all its right flavours are preserved and not distorted while being bequeued to eternity.
We are already working on a major Documentary and it looks like the flavours have been captured very well! Watch this space for more!
