Style coupled with Clarity is the facet of Omung’s sets. “When I design a set, I have the utmost priority that the set needs to be memorable. I also feel that a person should be able to describe the sets to the other person even on phone. So clarity is what I work on”, explains the famous art director and set designer.
Lastly, we ask the man who has worked on masterpieces like Black and Saawariya, what is the marking difference between creating a set for film and television. “Actually, films have always been my forte, and the one marking difference to work on a set on TV and films is that while working for TV, one can change the look but in films, the set has to be the same for life. Once the frame is captured, we have to stick on to it, but in television, we have the liberty to change things here and there!!”, says the man..
