Hi, I’m Sareesh Sudhakaran

I have been making videos since 2002. I have worked on feature films, commercials, and corporate videos.

In 2010, I made my first feature film, The Impossible Murder. It has more than a million views on YouTube.

I’ve also made short films, fashion films, documentaries and hundreds of videos for my popular YouTube channel.

I’m self-taught from the school of hard knocks. It’s taken me many years of mistakes to know what I know. And trust me, I’ve made them all.

Sareesh takes his already thorough and practical ‘free’ tips and articles and goes far beyond the basics in his guides.

If you are looking for information that you can understand and put to work immediately, you owe it to your work to check out everything he publishes.


Sareesh has a gift for digesting high volumes of complicated technical information and present it using a clear, concise, writing style that empowers the reader.

Also, he includes embedded videos to further illustrate and expand on each subject.
