Nalesh has hands-on production experience as a Associate Producer, Production Coordinator and Production Assistant.

Mr. Chandra has degrees in Marketing and Management and graduated Magna Cum Laude from California State University, Sacramento. He balances his creative side with a love of technology and holds eight United States Patents in digital communications.

"Let's have some fun with it."

A native of the South Pacific island of Fiji, Mr. Chandra moved to California at a young age, and upon seeing feature films in large theaters, he was hooked on cinema. Fluent in English and conversant enough in Spanish and Hindi to get by, Nalesh often tells the teams he works with: “Let’s have some fun with it”.

A constant helper, Nalesh plans to add an educational aspect to River City Studios in the future, where the production company will teach, coach and guide students in the science, art and business of production and marketing.
