EDITOR
Pascale Chavance (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0154439/) is a legendary French editor with a huge body of work behind her. She has edited films from varied countries, proving that cinema has a universal language. Pascale decided to work as an Editor of OASS because she was deeply moved by the story, realized the gravity of the menace of child trafficking and liked the opportunity to work in a Hindi project. OASS is her first Indian film. She was invited by Mumbai Film Festival as an International Jury and also to conduct a Master Class on Editing. Pascale is known for her work as editor in Fat Girl, Last Mistress, Sex is Comedy & the award winning Brief Crossing.

DOP
Viraj Singh (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2377446/) is a young cinematographer who has earlier worked on a film called Bhindi Bazaar. OASS was a challenge for him because it was to be shot mostly indoors with the necessity to differentiate the locations with different tints of colour. The camera work is exceptional and people will notice the nuances as they watch the film.

MUSIC
Louiz Banks (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0052208/) is a Grammy Award nominated versatile jazz musician and composer. He returns to compose film music after a hiatus, having composed for films like Hum, Duplicate Vansh, Suryavanshi & New Delhi Times. Being from Nepal himself, Louiz immediately identified with Kiku’s plight. He was moved to tears when he saw the rushes of OASS and immediately decided to compose the original score for the film.

SOUND DESIGN
Amrit Pritam Dutta (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2133606/) is one of those young turks of Bollywood who love to wear their crown with an air of nonchalance. Amrit has a credible list of films under his belt that would make many professionals turn green with envy. He has been the sound designer of films like Ra.One, Endhiran, Liv & Ingmer, Chittagong, Ghajini , Blue and English Vinglish. Amrit won National Award For Pazashi Raja; he is also two times winner of IIFA and APSARA awards as well as Zee Cine Award. He has worked very closely with Resul Pookutty in Slumdog Millionaire. Amrit has been very passionately involved with OASS from the beginning of the project and has been instrumental in creating a tapestry of sound in the film that will surely give you goose bumps. By far one of the best films of Amrit.

SOUND MIXING ENGINEER
Anup Dev (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0222139/) is an expert sound engineer  known for movies like 3 Idiots, Taare Zameen Par, Ghajini, Veer-Zaara, Paheli, Black and Kabhie Khushi Kabhie Gham.

PRODUCTION DESIGN
Sukant Panigrahy (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0659516/) is one of the most sought after Production Designer in Bollywood. His recent projects are Ek Tha Tiger, Heroine, Joker, Dev D, Chakde! & Gangajal.

OASS as a film with global message immediately grabbed Sukant’s interest, and he set aside a sizable portion of his quality time to create a unique ambience on the sets of OASS. The look of the brothels in the film required very sincere and meticulous execution to bring out the true nature of the place without being loud. This project has been very dear to Sukant and he has spoken about OASS in several interviews.
