Revelator Adds New Director/VFX Specialist Deepak Chetty

We’ve definitely been growing Revelator’s creative family this year, and we’re excited to announce that Mr. Deepak Chetty is the newest director to come on-board at Revelator. Deepak will join recent film and commercial directors Carlyn Hudson and Drew Xanthopoulos on the director roster at Revelator, which is headed by company partners Matt Muir and Chris Ohlson. Deepak will bring his amazing gift for visual storytelling and virtual reality production to several projects for both our agency and B2B clients. So let’s get to know Deepak:

Prior to coming on-board at Revelator, Deepak worked as a freelance director, visual effects artist and cinematographer in New York and Austin, TX. He attended and graduated with honors as an undergraduate film student at The Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York, then began working steadily in the field of broadcast television and motion graphics. His work as a visual effects artist and motion graphics designer has been featured in television for clients such as PBS and Dish Network, as well as films such as ROMAN POLANSKI: WANTED AND DESIRED (HBO), HARD RESET 3D and BLANK CITY.

Deepak moved to Austin to attend UT’s MFA program in Film Production, and upon graduation his work as a director began getting attention via the AFS 10 Under 10 series, The Longhorn Network and through viral media propagation. specially his filmic homage to the 8-Bit video game world, LOOPER THE MOVIE THE 8 BIT GAME. The fun viral tribute was a huge hit online, was covered by everyone from Vulture to Complex, and even ended in praise from director Rian Johnson himself! And you can watch it right here:

Deepak’s not only a director and VFX expert, but a cinematographer as well. As a D.P., Deepak’s work has been featured at such festivals as SXSW, Slamdance, The Hamptons International Film Festival and Silverdocs. Recently, he made waves with HARD RESET 3D, his graduate thesis film, created in conjunction with UT Austin’s pioneering stereoscopic 3D production program UT3D. The VFX heavy sci-fi/action epic film has been featured as an example among the press regarding the future of next level technological film-making in an educational environment.
