Three engineering graduates from the city have made their presence felt in the Hollywood with loads of appreciation from famous directors, actors and music composers for their debut music video album.

Ravi Shankar, Satya Komal and Jagadeesh Kumar, who had set up a production house Gotham Skyline Productions (GSP), made a video album on abandoned kids. The cover version of the album was sung by Miss Universe Bolivia Claudia Arce Lemaitre in Spanish. Each number in the album tells a story to educate people to support orphans and abandoned children. “ The video shows a gang of boys playing football while a kid is sitting alone. He gets up to kick the ball with the encouragement of the other kids at play, symbolising that a helping hand can do wonders in the lives of abandoned children,” says Satya Komal.

Ravi Shankar said that it all started with the inspiration of one of their well-wisher Satish Sikha, the founder of Healthy Kids Happy Kids, an International charity organisation. “ He encouraged us to make a video for his organisation, conveying a message for the orphan kids and it was co-produced by Gotham Skyline Productions and Healthy Kids Happy Kids,” he said.

The album got loads of appreciations from noted Hollywood artistes like Gordon (music composer of Need for speed game), Neil Huxley (Avatar movie visual effects supervisor), John Debney (academy award nominated music composer) and John Howe (illustrator of the Lord of the Rings, Hobbit).

“ The album was expertly made, beautifully shot. It is really a wonderful accomplishment,” commented Armand Mastroianni, director of a famous American TV series after seeing the music video.
