[FRAMED]: Mayuresh Bhagawan Powar, Compositor, MUM
[FRAMED] exists to shine light on Framestore’s most fascinating cast of characters: its people. Presented with a probing list of questions and a demandingly short deadline, this feature puts the hopes, dreams, and desktops of our MVPs on the digital wall, for all to see. Welcome to [FRAMED].
What are you guilty of?
Once I did the worst prank with my school teacher…
What was your last brush with danger?
I had just learnt how to drive a car, pulled out of a parking lot, and hit the accelerator instead of the breaks. Luckily, I didn’t hit anyone!
Your last brush with greatness?
I was in a hospital and saw a man who couldn’t pay for his expensive medical bill and I gave him the little money I had on me. After seeing this, the doctor waived the balance on his bill.
Your worst character fault?
I trust anyone immediately…
If you had taken a different path, what would you be doing now?
I would be a professional football player.
Who’s your partner-in-crime?
My older brother.
What’s your favourite movie/TV show and why?
Inception is one of my favourites because I love thriller movies. This movie has an amazing script and execution. Most importantly, I am a huge Christopher Nolan fan.
