Poetic Short Films: “Home” – The Himalayas Of Ladakh

Going the distance is not about how far away will you get, But from what length you are willing to return.

Seldom, we get to do projects crafted with so much perseverance, honesty, and love. Shooting at one of the most humble places in the world – Ladakh and exploring a side we hadn’t seen before, be it the raw beauty of the place or the wholehearted emotions of its people – it was a process that got us close to the feeling of being a Himalayan. Their way of life made us think if we are missing a point when we say we need to go the distance in life. Maybe at times going the distance could mean going back, to your roots. This introspection is what fuelled our latest project ‘Home’ for the Royal Enfield Himalayan.

We would like to thank some really talented minds who got associated with the project because they felt what we felt. It was an ever-evolving collaboration where each crew member brought something special to the film. A project that started with a casual conversation about doing something meaningful to shaping a strong idea and concept, to multiple jamming sessions with some of the best writers in the industry, to finally shooting in the extreme winter conditions of Ladakh (-17°C at 17,000 Feet to be precise), to endless hours on the edit, grade, and music. Yes, it’s been a long journey and a beautiful one.


We feel proud & blessed to be a part of this project and to having some of the most beautiful people in our team without whom this film wouldn’t be what it is. Grateful to each one of you for making this piece your own.
We’re excited to share our latest film with you all. Hope this finds a place in your heart as well.

Tibet: A Day In The Life Of A Himalayan Yak Man (Video)

This video is about the daily life of a typical Himalayan yak man, and how he spend his day and how he earns the money to support his whole family. I lived with him and his family for whole two days, and followed him for the life. He lived a simple life, but he deserves all of our respect.

Mountain Science: ‘Mount Everest Weather – Data Is In The Clouds’ (Video)

In 2019, members of the National Geographic and Rolex Perpetual Planet Everest Expedition set out to install five new weather stations on Mt. Everest, including the highest weather station on Earth. Follow along as the team climbs into the mountain’s “death zone” to complete the network of weather stations in order to improve our understanding of climate change.

Travel & Science Videos: ‘Everest Glaciology – Truth In The Ice’ (NatGeo)

As part of the National Geographic and Rolex Perpetual Planet Everest Expedition, a team of scientists and Sherpa guides sets out to collect information about glacial change in the Himalayas. By extracting ice cores from the highest glacier in the world, the team has begun to uncover details about climate change that have – until now – been hidden in this hard-to-reach ice. The National Geographic Society uses the power of science, exploration, education, and storytelling to illuminate and protect the wonder of our world.

Top Aerial Travel Videos: ‘Nepal At Night’ (2020)

Special Shout Out to: Curtis Morgan – who’s work has and continues to inspire our team.

Five years ago, during the end of a particularly cold Nepali winter, we traveled to the high Himalaya to explore the limits of high altitude aerial cinematography. It was one of the most ‘extreme’ film projects we had embarked on as a team, but as we watched the images come through the monitors, there was nothing but giant smiles and the stress of the journey was gone. Maybe it was the lack of oxygen, but damn Mt Everest looks sexy in 8k 🙂

All that took a dramatic turn a month after we returned. One of the most devastating earthquakes of the last century hit the very villages we had spent time exploring. The buildings, and even some of the people we had spent time with were gone. We learned later that our close friend had family members perish in the landslides that were a result of the earthquake. We were in shock.

Out of respect for the communities that were devastated and because of the sheer struggle we all had of celebrating a place in the midst of crisis; a large portion of the footage was shelved. The dreams of creating something ‘bigger’ left for a later time.

And then 2020 happened.

Looking to challenge ourselves in the midst of the pandemic and with a brand new intern bouncing in his virtual ‘Zoom Call’ chair; we decided to dust off some of that Nepal footage and see if we couldn’t make something that would make us all smile.

So with that, I present to you… Nepal at Night. A journey into the high Himalaya after the sun goes down. When the electric sea of stars, and even brighter moon rise over the roof of the world. Part fact, part fiction. 100% a reflection of the dreams our Camp4 Crew are having right now.
