Caviar has welcomed director and writer Sasha Nathwani to its UK roster for commercial and music video representation in London and Amsterdam.
Nathwani, is one of London’s emerging filmmaking talents who’s work connects deeply personal stories with an affecting emotional approach to visual storytelling.
A graduate of NYU’s Tisch School of The Arts, and a filmmaker of mixed Asian descent, his recent work includes the 2021 short film “Raj’s Story” about the Royal Navy’s first Sikh submariner. The touching short film was a recipient of a One Point Four and Channel 4 Diversity Award. His global campaign for New Balance “Impatience Is A Virtue” starring Jaden Smith and Coco Gauff was the recipient of a Endorphin Award, and is indicative of his youthful style of visual storytelling for sports content.
His music video catalogue includes two consecutive best video nominations at the Brit Awards and work for artists such as Izzy Bizu, Jasmine Thompson, Snakehips, Brother Leo and MK.
His debut feature film to be produced by Caviar, is due to go into production in the spring of 2023. It will be the first film from Sasha’s slate of forthcoming projects presently in development, each one an exploration of the duality of identity, a core theme in all of Sasha’s work.
Nisha Mullea, executive producer at Caviar in London had this to say on the new addition: “Sasha is such an incredibly talented filmmaker. His work, particularly those of BAME narratives, like Raj’s Story highlight his ability to tell untold stories with dedication and authenticity. We could not be prouder to have Sasha join us and we have some exciting projects in the making, including Sasha’s first feature film. Together we hope to push the boundaries of storytelling in a meaningful and moving way.”
Sasha adds: “I’m really excited to be embarking on the next phase of my career with the wonderful team at Caviar where I’m now represented for music videos and commercials in the UK. I’ve been a huge fan of Caviar’s output of inspirational work this last decade, not-to-mention their recent slate of feature films, some of which I count as my favourites.”
