CINEMA. CHAI. CHANGE.
CurleyStreet Media is a Bangalore, India based Film Production House.
The company was founded with the intrinsic belief that films made with love can change our world for the better.
We match our skills to your requirements and deliver ideas and concepts that amalgamate your identity and our aesthetics.
Every production is a labour of love. We live and breathe the films we work on.
Passion, planning, unrelenting energy and an eye for detail amount to a final product that stands apart from the rest.
From Chaiwallas to Changemakers, we don the cape of the hour. Our secret to success lies in recognising individual spirit and initiative and letting each person create their own niche in a collective quest to create cinema which has much soul as it has beauty.
Film you wish you had made: March of the Penguins
Favourite Quote: “I remember one morning getting up at dawn, there was such a sense of possibility. You know that feeling? And I remember thinking to myself this is the beginning of happiness. This is where it starts and of course there will always be more. It never occurred to me it wasn’t the beginning. It was happiness. It was the moment. Right then.”

If it is related to Film, it is our business.
PRE-PRODUCTION: We brainstorm, structure, plan, prepare, pre-empt, pre-empt and pre-empt some more.
PRINCIPAL PHOTOGRAPHY: We capture all the magic ‘On Set’ and leave no stone unturned to ensure that every shot is perfect! And yes, we drink copious amounts of coffee (or lime juice, depending on the weather)!
POST-PRODUCTION: We slice, we dice, we shake, we stir, we chop and we change; and yet, we are not easily satisfied. No rest for the weary till we are ready to present the final product to the world!
At all costs, we avoid that vile fiend ‘Jaded’. We constantly look to whet our creative appetite by immersing ourselves in new subjects. This is why our work consists of diverse themes such as Human Rights, Fashion, The Environment, Social Networking, Disability, Logistics, Sports, Technology, Healthcare and more.
