What am I working on at the moment?
I haven’t figured out the pitch just yet, but in my head it’s a South Asian Frasier (in premise, if not in quality). Basically: Karthik’s dad moves in next door — conflict, culture clash and hijinks ensue. I finished the first draft before Christmas, and I’m aiming to get the second one done by April.
In the spirit of showing my work, I’ve started a blog! I’d describe it as a notebook of what I’m learning and thinking about the moment. If you’re interested, you can also subscribe to my weekly newsletter, Smash Cut To:. As well as my blog posts, it includes things I’ve enjoyed in the past week (e.g. shows, essays, learning resources) and updates from The Wall of Personal Deadlines.
An iOS app that helps you focus on your priorities. I finished a basic version last summer, but it didn’t work on iOS 14 — so I’m currently rewriting it from the ground up. I’ve got it back into a state where I can use it myself, and I’m aiming to submit it to the App Store before summer.
I’ve started writing more of these, but this project is basically on hold until I feel safe filming things again. In the meantime, you can see the first two sketches here.
