Started in March, 2015, we’re a Mumbai-based advertising film production house that is, well, rather pig-headed. About pushing the envelope every single time. About collaborating with the best there is. And about creating great work.

Meet Our Team

Shirsha Guha Thakurta

Founder/Director

Shirsha’s work is known for its distinct, new-age identity that is stirring and memorable. Her showreel is a testament to her ability to capture the heart of the film, to achieve the right tonality, and to get nuanced performances out of her actors. An alumnus of the reputed Maine Media Workshops, U.S., she has been directing commercials for over a decade now, and her vast canvas includes work for brands like Google, WhatsApp, Reebok, Times Of India, Tanishq, Titan, Vogue, P&G, GSK, World Gold Council, Cadbury and Johnson & Johnson among others. Along the way, her work has picked up a host of awards, both on the national as well as the international stage.

Ramya Rao

Executive Producer

Blessed with a natural ability to multitask and organise, producing comes naturally to Ramya. She may be soft-spoken and easy-going, but when the going gets tough, she gets going, making problem solving seem like an effortless challenge. In a career spanning more than fifteen years, she has worked with reputed advertising production houses like Footcandles and Nirvana Films, and was a founding member of Handloom Pictures. She joined Oink as an Executive Producer in 2016, and since then has been instrumental in shaping some of the industry's most appreciated and effective pieces of communication.

Swaroop Sankar

Director

Swaroop Sankar is a multifaceted personality. His distinct style and immense knowledge on just about everything makes him hard to ignore. From being an artist, graphic designer and art director to being an editor, music director, actor and photographer, he has done it all. His brief but rewarding stint with advertising was at a time when his work received national and international accolades including Cannes Lion and One Show.
A nomad at heart his extensive travels have taken him across the globe. When he is not wandering, capturing different aspects of every culture and nature on his camera he is directing short films and ads for Oink.

Rupesh Sakpal

Finance Head

Rupesh heads our accounts department, and is known to add, subtract, divide and multiply faster than a calculator. If there’s anything he loves more than number-crunching, it’s exploring lesser-known places around Mumbai on his Bullet. So, if you don’t find him in office on a Friday afternoon, you can do the math.

Ranjit Singh

Post Producer

When he's not busy handling our post-production, Ranjit wields the megaphone as a freelance director. With a bunch of commercials, music videos and short films to his credit, he is always looking for creative ways to make his work translate into visual poetry.

Shamin Mistry

Director's Assistant

Shamin is our DA. She enjoys the qualitative process of filmmaking and how a visual soul is imparted to a script. An Art Deco and jazz music aficionado, she has a penchant for all things vintage.

Tara

Producer

With over a decade of experience under her belt, Tara is a producer with Oink. Budgeting, putting the right team together and client-agency liaisons are just some of the things she does in a day. A woman of many parts, when Tara is not staring at excel sheets, she lends her voice as a professional voice-over artist.

Ronita Sur

Assistant Director

Ronita works with us as an assistant director. When she is not bobbing her head to the latest chartbusters or giving life advice, she is filling up notebooks with new-age geometric artwork. A multitasker, to-do-list-ticker and big-things-dreamer, she relishes the creative process right from its very inception.

Gautami Telangi

Office Admin

Gautami looks after Oink’s day-to-day online and offline operations. This includes the management of the entire office, humans and pets alike. She is also a production trump card as she oversees the overall functioning of a shoot, never missing out on the finer details.

Devendra

Office Assistant

Devendra aka Dev, has been with Oink since its inception in 2015. His skills extend beyond just being an office support staff and assisting in its management. He has taken it upon himself to ensure that everyone’s gastronomic needs are attended to. From bespoke snacks to late-night beverage requests, he has it all covered. Oh, and the next time you’re in our office, you must try his signature cup of coffee.

Venkatesh

Office Assistant

Venkatesh aka Venky is the go-to guy for all things logistical, right from organising the office space to managing the Oink godown. Even on shoots, he is a huge production support, getting his hands dirty so that everything goes swimmingly well. He also enjoys being a part-time godfather to all the Oink pets.

Farouq

Office Assistant

If you’re a regular at Oink you probably already know Farouk. He is our chauffeur, handyman, informer and biryani-getter, all rolled into one. If you need to know the whereabouts of anyone in our office, he is probably the only man who’ll have all the answers. But you dare not disturb him during his afternoon siesta.
