Sunitha was born and brought up in Vijayawada and completed her bachelors degree in business management from George Mason University and went on to do her PG course in filmmaking from New York University. Starting off about her story, she mentioned how her education in New York prepped her in being on set and understanding the functionality of each technical aspect involved in the process of filmmaking. Considering herself a “storyteller”, she feels the need to convey a story is necessary for any filmmaker to execute an idea and depict it on screen.

With an experience in working for T.V and film respectively, she understands the difference between the two mediums and advised the students on how they could pave their way in making their career in either of the two. Engaging in an interesting Q/A session with the students she covered various areas of discussion in film and the current industry dynamics. Talking about each student’s favorite director, different tastes and different movies, she made the interaction informative by sharing her personal experiences with the essence of professionalism.
