Vikram was born in New Delhi, India in 1977 into a family of artists, musicians, dancers and scientists & yet his biggest influence was his grandmother’s story-telling. However, before jumping right into film studies after high school, Vik decided to first "focus on one frame before working with 24 frames per second" - a lesson taught to him by his father and heeded throughout his career.
He attended the prestigious Government College of Arts in Calcutta, where he created a short docudrama titled ‘inSANITY’ about a homeless artist on the streets of Calcutta. This later got accepted into the Film program at Sheridan College, Canada in 2001. He graduated with a Major in Fine Arts, receiving an honours scholarship and a Gold Medal for outstanding achievement in the field of Art & Design. Vik founded Pixel Palette Inc in 2004 - a design studio that specialized in telling stories through live-action production, motion graphics,, visual effects and animation production. Since then Vikram has worked as a creative director and director in Film and TV, including working with Indian musical genius AR Rahman of ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ fame on multiple occasions.
Vik’s latest commercial for the Pan Am / Parapan Am TO2015 titled ‘Are you ready’ was nominated for the Cannes Lions 2015 in the Film (Entertainment and Leisure) category. His most recent narrative, the multi award winning film ‘Calcutta Taxi’, funded by CTV’s Bravofact and National Film Board of Canada was in consideration for the Academy Awards 2014 in the Short Narrative Drama Category. Vikram works out of Toronto and lives solely to breathe emotion, sensitivity and humour into every project he undertakes irrespective of its medium.
