ABOUT SIPPA MUDLIAR
Navlesh Mudliar, known by friends and family as “Sippa,” was a respectful son, compassionate friend, protective brother, remarkable athlete and ambitious professional. Throughout his 27 years, Sippa was known to be the charismatic, funny and positive spirit in every room. A single conversation with Sippa and one would instantly adore his radiant soul and want to be in his sphere of fun and energy. Despite his nurturing, loving and hysterical antics, he had a side that was also savvy and thoughtful. Sippa naturally possessed a creative mind with an indomitable work ethic and zeal for problem solving. In pursuit of being a film director one day, he decided to attain his post-secondary education in Film Production at Vancouver Film School. He was an astounding talent behind the camera — passionate about shaping light, cinematography and telling stories. His school colleagues recognized him as a ninja with a C-stand and a Samurai with a light head. There was no hurdle too big… Sippa could do just about anything he put his mind and heart to. He passed away on March 9, 2016.
