A small company in terms of manpower, Santanu Productions distinguish themselves with their quick assimilation of briefs, and prompt & effective implementation right from story board to rushes to completed film.
But their USP lies also in their ability to translate simple ideas of the customer into effective story telling solutions in film. The success of this small production house is evident from its large active customer database (that includes many successful corporate houses in India, who have become its regular clientele, along side new customers), its references and commendable body of work. Santanu Productions owes its success to the vision, passion and technical & visualisation capabilities of its head Mr Santanu Bhattacharjee, who has several decades’ experience working with and for a wide range of leaders in various fields.
