Optimystix re-opens ad film unit

MUMBAI: Optimystix Entertainment India Pvt Ltd, a multi genre content company is all set to re-open its advertising film production unit.


In fact, director Sanjiv Sharma, along with music director Leslie Lewis, both with a track record of more than 1,000 commercials, have already shot their first commercial for Donear, a leading textile brand.

Speaking to on the new venture, Sharma said, "After a three year break we're again getting into ad film making. It will not be a separate company but the unit will function under the Optimystix banner."



He further added, 'In terms of resource allocation, my writer director Vipul Shah will be overseeing the scripts and Rajeev Vyas will be looking into the business side of it. And like in our television projects there will both be a business and a creative head."

Sharma actually comes from a background in ad films and had started Palette Communications Pvt Ltd in 1987. He went on to do many successful ad film campaigns with Maruti Udyog, Hindustan Lever, Shaw Wallace and Pepsi Foods, amongst others. It was in 2000 that he, along with writer director Vipul Shah, started Optimystix.

Adds Sharma, "Most of the people we have with us have dabbled in both the genres; advertising as well as TV production. Earlier, we had diverted people and resources from Pallete into TV production and now we'll be using the same for TV commercials."
