About Latha Menon

Photographer. Filmmaker. Storyteller.

One of the most intuitive among the corporate filmmakers and ad filmmakers of our country, Latha Menon is a storyteller whose soul comprises of visuals and words that translate into narratives. From a busy actor endorsing an efficient telecom brand to the real-life stories of dairy farmers, to a weaver staying true to his art in times of change, she believes that understanding character is the crux of art. Till date, she has directed and produced over 150 commercial ad films.

Learning

A pupil in more ways than one.

For Latha Menon, learning is a constant to stay relevant in this dynamic field of media. It began with her education when she did her Masters in Social Communication Media from Sophia College, Bombay.

To fine-tune her cinematic eye, she has been an assistant director for Mani Ratnam in “Kannathil Mutthamittal” and “Dil Se”.

Photography

Sharing her art.

These multifarious experiences in the industry have kept the photographer within her alive. On the twentieth anniversary of her production house, she released a calendar with wildlife photography (2016) and raised funds for the Chennai flood relief. In the next year (2017) her calendar featured ‘People, Places, & Pictures’ and raised funds for the Tamil Nadu Kidney Relief foundation.

This year’s calendar by her is dedicated to our country’s hard-working farmers.

She has completed a full circle by also working as a faculty member in the Mind Screen Film Institute.

Latha Menon works towards making ideas that combine innovation with insightful concepts that strive to reach out to audiences in this constantly evolving world.
