TWO FRIENDS


Director: Nunna Sravan Kumar

My name is Nunna Sravan Kumar. I was born on 25 th Dec 1979, at Bapatla, Andhra Pradesh, India. I grew up in Khammam, Andhra Pradesh. I studied at the Zilla Parishad High School at Ravinuthala. After schooling I did my Diploma in Electrical & Electronics from the Government Polytechnic College at Mahboobnagar. After completing my education I worked in I.T. sector as Lead Operations Specialist for IBM. After many years of working for IBM I moved to working for ITC Infotech Limited as an Associate Manager. I always felt a pull towards the dynamics and finer intricacies of film making. I would spend hours and hours watching movies by legendary directors like Mr. Akira Kurosawa. I use to watch the black and white movies as they give a better glimpse in to the sharpness and direction methodology. I would even take down notes in a book about things I felt important according to me. All this continued for years while I continued pulling along with a normal job. In the year 2007 I bought a very big and expensive hard cover book on the legendary director and my idol Mr. Akira Kurosawa. With every passing day of 12 -14 hour work shifts in the corporate world I was feeling restless and more drawn towards my passion of film making.

Tale of two friends and how toys changed their lives.
