Director's Guild of America (DGA) student award winner Saad Nawab's journey to be a storyteller of consequence has led him from the conservative landscape of the Middle East to a strict boarding school in the mountains of Western India to the hallways of the royal Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda where he graduated with an honors degree in English. He ended up in Bombay by chance and caught the eye of some of India’s most respected filmmakers for his creative prowess.Always yearning to take precarious roads, one fine late night, he chanced upon an unattended portal that led him to the prestigious College of Motion Picture Arts at Florida State University where he graduated with an MFA in film direction. Since then, he has embarked on another journey in search of a mythical book of untold stories that might be the key to changing the course of his undefined future. Saad’s film “Frankenstein’s Light”, a kids fantasy, has played and won awards in over twenty five film festivals across the Americas, Asia and Europe. He loves to utilise the visual medium to explore themes of the human condition related to innocence, loss and religion against the backdrop of worlds brimmed with science fiction and fantasy. He resided and worked in New York before moving back to Bombay, India where he indulges in writing, directing and editing narratives, commercials and experimental films.
