Somethingwehavealwayswantedtodo: Our First Film

In March 2011 the two of us set out to travel around India and make a film. The film you see here is a teaser of sorts, edited from footage of the first two months of travel - mostly around Himachal Pradesh, and a bit of Rajasthan.

From an unsuccessful house hunt in Chennai to documenting performers and artisans up and down the country, somethingwehavealwayswantedtodo. Wow.

If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, music is in the ear of the listener. Delightful little travelogue. The whole thing is done quite well, but the editing just shines through. If this is just the teaser, I’m excited to see what they come up with next.
