'Bombay Vikings' fame Anthony D' Souza to direct international videos

MUMBAI: After having directed eclectic videos for Sukhbir, Silk Route and Bombay Vikings, video director Anthony D'Souza is now all set to scale the international scene.

D' Souza will now direct videos for teen sensation Avril Lavigne and music maestro Carlos Santana.


According to a media release, BMG International had invited D'Souza to direct videos for the artists' forthcoming albums, a first time ever for an Indian director.

With an international ace up his sleeve, Anthony continues to be a part of the Indian foray too with the much appreciated video of upcoming artist Sarrosh's debut album He Ya, on air these days.

The media release adds that the video, a rare mix of artistic visualization and computer generated imagery with popular VJ Ramona and model Bunty Grewal in it has an almost surreal appeal and a dreamlike quality with a twist of realism.



"I wanted the video to have a fairy tale look; each sequence is like you turned a page of an 'enchanted adventure', with each shot looking totally different from the other. For example in one sequence we would have a natural light feel and the next one would be decidedly unnatural. There is something about almost illusory about every shot", explains Anthony.

D'Souza has been associated with projects with the international scene having directed 52 episodes of the hit series Ripley's' Believe it or Not! aired on AXN channel for the South East Asian regions, informs the press release.

Ripley's Believe it or Not! co-producer Gail Smerigan asserts, "Anthony's work brought a whole new dimension to Ripley's. He covered stories from all over the world and not only was the content there but he captured the feel of wherever he was so that you felt immersed in that culture."
