Amin was born in Kampala, Uganda but grew up in Florida, in the United States. While Shimit Amin was enamored with film culture from an early age, his parents pressed him to be more conventional in his college studies; he graduated with a degree in mathematics from the University of Florida. After playing a significant role in organizing and promoting North Florida's first international film festival, The 1991 Asian/Asian American International Film Festival, in Jacksonville, Florida, Shimit moved to Miami and primarily worked on industrial/corporate and small independent film projects. After about a year in Miami, Amin traveled to California where he worked on independent films before beginning to work, in many behind the camera roles with major Hollywood directors. Amin's energy, film knowledge and high quality work attracted the attention of Bollywood filmmakers. From Los Angeles, Mr. Amin moved on to working in the Indian film Industry.
