The 28 year old director fell in love with audiovisual storytelling since highschool and have been creating content ever since. With a degree of visual communication design in one of Indonesia’s best Fine Art schools, Banu has a keen sense for storytelling. His final year assignment in 2015 travelled around local college-level film festivals and winning awards such as Best Scriptwriting, Best Cinematography, Best Film, to Audience’s Choice award. His love for music is said to be the key for great-storytelling. Combined with the visually-whimsical imagination of a co-director and college mate Rheza Arden Wiguna, they make a great team of directors.
In 2012 he and the co-director of this film founded Seeds Motion, a multidisciplinary design studio, focusing on motion picture storytelling using various techniques from stopmotion to projection mapping. Previously, Seeds Motion, under Rheza and Banu’s creative leadership, focused on short non-narrative documentaries commissioned by the sculptor, Nyoman Nuarta. Other than commissioned works from the GWK sculptor, Seeds Motion also spent some time in the advertising industry creating audiovisual content for commercial brands.
