Filmmaker making your visions come true.


My name is Elcor Aragundi. I am a U.S. Army Veteran and an alumni of the New York
Film Academy. I recently graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Fine Arts of Filmmaking. I have written and directed 3 short films, as well as been a part of production crew on different sets in the past four years. I have experience working from a Production Assistant to Casting, to being a first director on several different sets. I’ve worked using Movie Magic scheduling and budgeting. I’ve helped producers with location permits and insurance during preproduction.I am a passionate individual with a variety of skills. Skills that I have harnessed while I served as a soldier in the military, and as a student of the New York Film Academy. I am team player that is willing to do whatever is necessary to take a creative vision or goal and find ways to help my team make it happen.
