Another version of this Bio...

Anand C. Chandran is a cinematographer popular in South Indian film industry. He was born on 3rd April 1991. He hails from the town of Alwaya in Kerela. He was from the first batch of students who did the course of B.Sc Film Technology from SRM University, Chennai. While there, he was part of the Lokadharmi Theatre group as well. His talent and aptitude for cinematography were displayed early on when he won the award for best cinematography at the inter-college short film competition at Madras Christian College for the short film titled ‘Letters from Heaven’. Right after he completed his education, he got offered the job of director of photography for "Neram"(2013), his first film. The film, a thriller with dark humour, did very well in cinemas. The movie was so well received in Kerela and in Tamil Nadu that it will be re-made in Telugu and Marathi as well. The movie is about an engineer called Mathew, his love life, his family problems, money debts and how these all fuse together to create misery for him and how in the end it all gets resolved. The film won best debut actor awards at the Filmfare awards and the Best Actor’s Pair award at Asianet Film Awards.

His mantra is that the Director of Photography should keep the screen shots in sync with the script of the film for best results and he believes that the most effective way of learning the art of the camera is by watching films.

Another one of his projects was " Aviyal Click to look into! >> Read More...

Another one of his films is "Premam", a Malayalam romantic comedy, directed by Alphonse Putharen. The movie, released in 2015, was critically acclaimed and did exceedingly well at the box office. The story is about a boy named George and how love evades him over the years, playing cruel tricks on him all along. This movie won multiple awards at various award functions such as IIFA Utsavam, Asia Vision Movie Awards, Asianet Film Awards, and more. Another movie he has to his name is the short film titled "Kattan Kappi" ( Black Coffee Story soon >> Read More... ), a film about the life of John right after the end of his relationship with his long-time girlfriend.

Chandran is a young artist and mostly does film that represent the youth. He is good with his work and thus is doing so well from such an early age on.

Although all the movies that Chandran has worked on have won multiple awards and have been very well appreciated, but he himself did not receive any personal awards. Despite that, he seems to have a promising career and will surely do many more award winning movies in the future.
