ABOUT    SANJ

 

There's music on both sides of the tape

 

Side A: The Filmmaker


From experimenting with the family camcorder as a youth, rotoscoping lightsabers in Photoshop as a teen in shaky Star Wars fan videos, and later running his university's television network, Sanj has always been, and continues to be passionate about filmmaking.

 

Side B: The Lawyer


A law graduate of the London School of Economics and New York University School of Law, Sanj trained as a human rights and criminal defence barrister at Doughty Street Chambers. He has worked for NGOs and taught law at university.

WRITING

Sanj's supernatural legal TV drama pilot was described by The Black List reviewers as "head and shoulders above most procedural pilots", and "highly original and engaging" with a "remarkably well-developed and sympathetic female lead”.


Sanj has written legal arguments for cases in English and foreign courts, and has published in a peer-reviewed journal. An essay he wrote on human rights and cultural relativism, which won first prize in the UK Law Society's essay competition, can be read here.
