Execution & Process
We decided to create a film on Marriott's Halwai after screening several employees. Halwai Raghvendra’s story was created using bits & pieces of his spoken words. Way before the filming of his story we would have regular chats with him, almost every other day. Every new chat brought about a new insight. On weaving his words together, we were delighted to see the right kind of motivation arising from the story.
