Diverging from a biomedical engineering career, Cyril graduated from the American Film Institute (AFI) producing program in 2014, where his thesis film RISE was a semi-finalist at the Student Academy Awards. Since then he line-produced a television show ‘Ismo’ for Finnish television and produced a documentary ‘Juhani’s Minimani.’ He was also an associate producer for ‘The Journey is the Destination’ that premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) in 2016. As a producer with extensive international experience, Cyril is currently a producer at INVAR Studios. In the VR space, Cyril produced WOMBSONG, which is currently touring the festivals. He has also been commissioned by Helsinki City Museum to develop a Virtual Reality experience based on the history of Helsinki for Fall 2019. Currently, Cyril is producing Hanna Vastinsalo’s documentary, “Land of Mutations,” which sheds light on how studies into Finnish rare hereditary diseases have impacted the lives of people worldwide. He is also developing a Mexican-Indian romcom that is set around a fictional border wall between Mexico and the United States. A believer of “Enlightenment through Entertainment,” Cyril’s goal at Invar Studios is to share stories that are not only commercially viable in today’s global marketplace but have an impactful, positive message behind them. Cyril will lead the organization of the team in India as well as the projects during development, production and pre-production phases.
