He has just added another feather to his cap by shooting what is being claimed as India’s first digital stereoscopic 3D commercial. According to sources, the commercial which promotes a three-door refrigerator is already making waves in Dubai. He got this opportunity through his friend and the director of the commercial.

One small mistake can ruin the whole exercise”. And after watching this commercial, several people have approached me to make 3D commercials for them too,says Randy.
The cinematographer beams and signs of with a positive note by saying that it was all because of the great efforts from his team.
