about "LoveBeats"

Chris and cinematographer Varun Kumar Panda initially met and worked together when Varun was in the USA. Upon Varun’s return to Delhi, he and Chris started looking for a project they could work on together, by remote at first, to take advantage of their international divide.

One day Varun mentioned an abandoned building

near his Delhi residence, and the feeling that he had while visiting it.

“It’s like a haunted house”, said Varun, and sent over a series of photos of the building:

The Haunted House

In these photos lies the genesis of “LoveBeats”.

They started development in late June of 2018, but by 202 and the Covid-19 pandemic, their production partnership dissolved and Varun reverted to the possible role of DP. 

“Love Beats” is now provisionally scheduled for principal photography in the late Spring of 2021, with completion by the end of that year.
