After producing multiple music videos and co-creating indie film projects, Shri made the leap to writer, director and producer in 2016. In a whirlwind of divinely guided creativity he produced a short-film in just 7 weeks. ‘Out of the Darkness’ went on to win ‘Best Cinematography’ and ‘Best Post-Production’ in its first film festival. Shri is now working towards producing a full feature film based on a script he has written about healing our inner child.

Current Film Project

Title: Healing Echoes

Running Time: Full Feature (approximately 120 mins)

Genre: Spiritual Drama

Logline: Four early middle age adults embark on a soul-searching quest to mend the scars of the past, finding redemption for their inner wounded child.

Synopsis: While sitting at his dying father’s bedside, University Psychology Professor Jim Riley enters the dark night of the soul leading back to childhood. His wife Diane and their friends Linda and Daniel are also confronted with their own inner wounded child traumas. The pain story is too overwhelming for one of them resulting in suicide. The other three are left to find resilience and healing or to repeat the cycles of abuse and addiction.


Our lives are an accumulation of old stories; the adversities, struggles, and challenges we have faced. We have stories of joy and bliss, but our pain stories are where we get stuck. The stories that we never had a chance to heal from. Perhaps they were just too painful to deal with in the moment or perhaps there was no one there to guide us thru the healing process. For many of us these stories unfolded during our childhood and continue to impact the adults we are today.

There is a theme that threads thru those childhood stories. It weaves the experiences that continue to unfold in our adult lives as parents, partners, and in our careers. Are you healing from a story of either abandonment, betrayal, loss, or rejection? This story has four lead characters, each having one of these four pain stories from childhood. This film project is focusing on healing the wounded child within us and we need your help to do it.
