Science & Natural History Filmmaker

About The Filmmaker

At 22, Ashwika began her journey as a wildlife cameragirl in South Africa. This led to a number of work-opportunities in different parts of the world, including Kenya, Borneo, India, Nepal and New Zealand.

In 2014, Ash graduated in Science & Natural History Filmmaking from the University of Otago. There she enhanced her camera skills and, much to her delight, discovered an innate knack for storytelling.

Ashwika loves finding and filming unusual and enjoyable stories from nature. Her aim is to entertain, educate and inspire. Her Green Oscar-nominated film Sirocco –How a Dud Became a Stud, a rags-to-riches story about a celebrity bird, received critical acclaim worldwide.

In a country of 1.2 billion people, Ashwika is among the very few Indian women who has made Natural History Filmmaking a fulltime profession.

She is currently involved in the filming and production of two International blue-chip television-programs.
