Mehma Sachdeva is an Artist, Producer and occasionally an avid dancer! She brings a wealth of creative, management and people skills to Spire. Over the course of 20 years, Mehma has run the gamut from 3D Animation to VFX, finally finding her true calling in production management. Her time spent in the artist’s seat lends insight and informs her work to this day. She’d rather have it done right, than done right now.
Mehma’s career started as a CG Generalist in 2001. She is credited on award-winning Bollywood films such as Veer Zara, Kal Ho Naa Ho, and Mere Yaar ki Shaadi Hai. With a hankering to understand the larger picture of creative project management and a desire to evolve as a creator, Mehma got herself a Masters in Digital Imaging and Design from the NYU School of Continuing Education and Professional Studies.
In 2010 Mehma made the move from artist to producer at Prana, with credits on the Emmy winning Game of Thrones “the Dance of the Dragons” (S5 E9), Disney’s Planes, Planes: Fire and Rescue and Bollywood Filmfare awardee, Bombay Velvet. Mehma continued to broaden her horizons as a producer, delivering film-based theme park experiences such as Independence Day – Defiance motion simulation ride in Malaysia and the Bollywood Parks rides, Lagaan, Sholay and Krrish in Dubai. She went on to head production at Mint Animation Studios in 2018 to deliver 2D episodic series such as Central Park on Apple TV, Venom Files for Marvel, and Woman in Book for FB watch.
She joins Spire to build the team in India with some of the best and brightest talent in the country. Team building and mentoring come naturally to Mehma. That and breaking into an impromptu dance sequence.
