1. Let’s start from the beginning, when and why did you decide that you want to pursue editing as your career?
Final year of my college days lo start ayindi. Naa first experience chepta.. College lo oka video edit ki friends help adigithe andharu busy ga unnam anesariki, why not me! nene cheskolena edit ane thought vachindi. Friend daggara ki velli software install cheyi, process enti ani adigithe 15 minutes crash course ichadu.. Idhi cut, transition, text ila veyali ani anthe ala start ayindi. Nenu dancer kabatti music sense Konchem unde, music petti , edit chesi cheppalanukuna katha cheppa.
Friends ni old videos adigi teskuni, I used to form my own stories. Friend okadu Orissa lo Puri beach ki velinapudu random ga konni shots capture cheskuni vachadu. Daniki Nenu poem raasi, edit chesi , music compose cheyinchi pampisthe it got selected in film festival. I learnt editing out of crisis.
2. In simple words, Editing ekkada nerchukunnaru bro?
Editing naku self taught ye! Nakemaina doubt vachindi ante YouTube chusi telusukunta.
3. Is there storytelling in Editing too? Does editing include storytelling?
Naako thought process undi about editing entante.. writers, directors, Screenplay writers andharu kalisi oka book thayaru chestaru (shoot and script) ah prose ni andhamaina poetry ga cheppedhe editing.
Editing lo story telling untundha ante vallu raase vidhananiki, memu chese vidhananiki teda untundi.
4. The big question, Major movie lo chance ela vachindi?
Chai Bisket dwara Goodachari ki 5 promotional videos chesa. Adhi nachi next cinema ki teskundham annaru. Then later on, gurthupettukuni na friend Rajiv ani untadu he brought me on board for Major.
5. What was your parents’ reaction when you joined Chai Bisket? And what’s their reaction now?
They were very scared because chala high paying job vadilesi vacha. I had a job that used to pay me One lakh per month. Antha high paying job vasthada, radha, what about the security, films ante oka negative impression starting lo ila undedhi.
Later on konni Chai Bisket short films chusi, mellaga Color photo chusi, now Major ki dhairyam vachindi. They are very happy and super proud now.
Major ayyaka daddy okati chepparu- Konni kathalu untayi just cheptaru, konni chusthe ardam avthayi, konni kathalu kevalam experience cheyyali. Film is an experience and adhi define chesina film Major anaru.
6. Which tools/software do you use for editing?
Oka silpam chekkadaniki hammer elago software kuda anthe. Adhi chekkevadi medha base ayyi untadhi not on the tools anedhi is what I believe.

Oka roju kurchuni Pre-Climax scene edit chesthuna.. Sesh vachi Peekay we need to talk anaru. Do you know your contribution to the film anaru.. naku lopala nundi bhayam start ayindi..

Do you mind sharing credit with Vinay (Editor) ani adigaru.
I am online editor(Set lo ne edit chesesi, music akade pettesi, sound effects add chesesi on the spot chupinchadam) for Major first. Work chusi, nachi they promoted to main editor of the film. That is the best memory I have!
8. Oka movie edit cheyadaniki enni days time padutundo cheppagalama?
No you can’t! Editing starts from script to till final delivery of the movie. Script start ayinappati nundi last varaku entha best ivvagalamo antha chekkuthune undali.
9. From whom did you get the best compliment/ applause for the film Major?
Chala vachayi but.. More than a film, more than an experience, It’s a movement. It’s a moment of MAJOR SANDEEP UNNIKRISHNAN. This is the best compliment that we got!
