Delhi & the CMS Vatavaran Environmental Film Festival

Here are some some shots of Agra and Delhi I took with my GH2.

As you’ll see in the description of the film on Vimeo, I absolutely loved India.

The film festival was great. I met many inspiring filmmakers and environmentalists, and attended master classes on Storytelling (Adam Schmedes, Loke films), Research (Theo Webb  BBC Natural History Unit), How to Start an International Co-production (Evert van den Bos), Parallel Cinema (Shyam Benegal), Insuring Your Production (Bhupesh Kumar), and Making Money on YouTube (David Macdonald). There were a few technical issues during the master classes, but aside from that, being in the company of so many accomplished creatives was fantastic.

A couple of guys from Arri were there to present the Alexa – which is quite awesome, if rather expensive (I think around 60 000 USD).

Sitting beside the filmmakers during the screenings of their films  – and being able to pop a few questions was excellent.

It was great to see quite a few young Indian filmmakers screen their films at the festival.

The food was also fantastic, and the spontaneous dance session on the night of the awards ceremony was hilarious.
