The Best in the Business
Rock Salt is a consortium of three seasoned creators, whose individualistic ideologies, passion for creativity and love for the cinematic expression has led them to work together.
Our work embodies the intrinsic qualities and essence of Rock Salt.
Rock Salt’s unique character is true to its name, just as the salt’s presence may not be felt but its absence can make all things tasteless… we work without noise, seamlessly upholding the highest production standards while continuing to maintain the passion for our craft. We are deeply oriented towards serving our clients’ needs and measure customer-satisfaction levels in order to determine the success of our business.
Customising films for our clients’ unique requirements gives us a trance like creative high. Not bound by geographic location, we work across regions and countries and across varied industries and sectors as well. Based out of Mumbai, we also have offices in Hyderabad, Bangalore and Chennai in South, while in Northern India we hold fort in Jaipur and rest of Rajasthan. On the international front we have a firm foothold in Thailand and USA, with a growing presence in UAE.
Our expertise focuses on precision and detailing every aspect of film making be it ideation, scripting, shooting, execution, editing, strategy making, Pre –production, productions or post production.
We act like a preservative that truly holds on to the flavor of a script. Just like when you chop some fresh herbs, the salt will extract the moisture while preserving the true flavor…
