Aneel Neupane — you might have heard this name for quite a number of times in last couple of days. The Kathmandu based film-maker has been all over the internet recently because of a controversy. We won’t be talking about that right now (you can read all about it HERE) as we’ll only be talking about this multi-talented young fellow and some of his awesomest works. Here’s everything you need to know about him.
Originally from Sunsari, the Lalitpur based 24-year old grew up in Patan. Always a topper in high school and +2 level, he had a keen interest in photography and wanted to pursue a career in the same, but had to go to Delhi to study Chartered Accountancy because of family’s pressure. He agreed on to go to India to study, provided his parents buy him a DSLR camera and that was it, he got his first ever professional camera, a Canon 550D.
He started learning photography from various online tutorials to sharpen his skills. As he came closer to photography, he started getting away from his studies. He had more interest in taking pictures of everything around him rather than attending his classes; and then came a day when he took the biggest decision of his life so far – he dropped out of college to do what he likes to do.
The genre of photography that attracted him the most was miniature. He was always fascinated by the insects and wondered how would it be for us if we were so tiny. He started shrinking himself in the photographs and made a small world of himself. Today, he is a master at miniature photography and also conducts workshops to teach the art to others. Here are some of his photographs of the same genre.
“Now you’re mine.” Yes, that’s the love of his life!
If Jurrasic World was made in Nepal.
Aww! Love is in the air!
Go, get it.
The most adorable king and queen!
Let’s play some piano, err, cellphone I mean.
After photography, it was time for him to try something new and exciting. Jall Cawasji, a friend of his, inspired and taught him the basics of film-making. Together they made a commercial ad to participate in MOFILMS Bose Ad contest. Watch it here.
He soon started working on a new project, a short film titled ‘Social’. He wrote, directed and edited the one-minute film that basically tells the everyday story of all of us. Give it a watch.
Then here’s a 42-second comedy short film titled ‘Last Puff’ by Prabin Basnetkazzi which was not only edited by Aneel but he even acted on it. Watch.
And here’s a beautiful wedding video done by him.
And of course, there’s ‘Bob’; the film that inspired the Bollywood director Shirish Kunder’s ‘Kriti’ starring Manoj Bajpayee, Radhika Apte and Neha Sharma. That’s what the whole controversy is about. Watch it here.
Apart from these short films, he did animation for Fuzz Factory Productions while making the music video of Rohit John Chettri’s ‘Sannani’. The 8-bit animation will definitely take you back to the good old days of Mario and Contra. Watch it here.
Phew! Such a talented young lad he is. We are pretty sure that he will definitely bring a revolution in Nepali film industry when he enters it. This talented guy has quite a bright future ahead in front of him. Connect with him on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Vimeo and YouTube.
Watch his story featured in ‘This Is My Diary’.
