Director BIO: Ravi Ajit Chopra (COGNITION)

Ravi Ajit Chopra has been working in the TV and Film Industry for over 18 years as a Producer, Director and Editor. His short Sci-Fi Drama / Thriller ‘Cognition’ starring Bafta Winner Andrew Scott (Fleabag) & Jeremy Irvine (Green Lantern) is fulfilling a childhood dream, which started in his family’s video shop ‘The Talash Video Centre’ when he was six years old.

He worked as a Producer / Director for BBC Films for nearly 8 years Producing & Directing promotional / behind the scenes material for 44 film productions.

See Cognition’s prime time coverage on BBC London News (BBC One) & review highlights from leading U.K Film Critic Mark Kermode, here:

Director Statement

“Cognition is a very personal film for me, I have always been fascinated with the inner workings of the mind, and what it means to confront your trauma / demons and follow your dreams….. I hope the audience will enjoy coming on this psychological rollercoaster ride.”

COGNITION was the last film to shoot at the iconic Battersea Power Station in London. We recorded a stunning orchestral score at Air Studios in London with the 55 piece BBC Concert Orchestra.

Renowned Production Designers Universal Creations (Star Wars, Guardians of the Galaxy) built key sets and props. Emmy award winning Supervising Sound Editor Stuart McCowan and his team produced a searing atmospheric soundtrack at Twickenham Film Studios with a Dolby Atmos print at Abbey Road Studios. Various VFX companies including Emmy winning Peerless, Territory Studios and Foundry helped to complete the 350 Visual Effects shots. Technicolor worked on the film for 13 months and provided their visual wizardry on invisible VFX, grading and finish.

We have been very fortunate to have had a 4 week cinema release at Archlight Cinemas in London, very rare for a short.
