About the speaker
Vishwesh can do many things – sitting still isn’t among them. A director, writer, actor, musician, voice artist, beatboxer and storyteller, it’s difficult to imagine Vishwesh sitting idle.
He began his creative journey through music and drama in his graduation years, becoming a journalist first, later a copywriter with Ogilvy, moving on to Viacom18 (MTV,Vh1, Comedy Central) as a Promo Producer where he won more awards than the mantlepiece could accommodate. He finally joined the gang at Corcoise films as a Director. All through, Vishwesh never let go of his penchant for humour and histrionics and is still an active member of Mumbai’s theatre circuit and circle of independent filmmakers, while flirting with standup on the side.
In 2011, he was enlisted as ‘Asia’s Directors to watch out for’ at the Asia-Pacific AdFest in Phuket. In 2012, he won his first Cannes Lion in Branded Content and Entertainment for The Dewarists, a documentary mini-series that combined travel and music for Dewar’s Whiskey.
