Navdev Basra

As a graduate of the Film and Television Production program at Humber College in the production management stream, I've produced three short films over the course of the past two years, often serving multiple roles as producer, production manager and post-production supervisor. All three shorts were made during the COVID-19 pandemic whilst following industry-standard COVID compliance policies to ensure the health of my crews. The budgets for these projects ranged from $3,000-$50,000, including in-kind contributions and the value of the equipment we were responsible for, such as the Canon C700 Camera and Zeiss lenses. In co-ordination with my directors, I oversaw submission of these shorts to various film festivals, with Meet Me in the Hallway being selected by the Hamilton Youth Film Festival. Currently I'm supervising post-production for Anodyne, a Humber College short film I've been producing since January, as well as completing the sound mix for the short films Where Shadows Lie, Big Sky, Meter's Running as well as Anodyne. I bring a wide repertoire of skills to any project I work on, from organizational, administrative, and budgeting skills, to creative ones involving script development, editing, and sound design. If my combination of skills is something you think would benefit your project, please reach out, as I look forward to helping others bring their visions to life.
