Travel Videos: ‘Density’ – An Aerial View Of India

Filmed and Edited by: Matt Horspool

After watching the new ‘Extraction’ Movie on Netflix, I was inspired to go back and piece together this small number of aerial clips I took during my project in India, 2019.

Never before have I seen such density and organised chaos in one single country. I was also totally blown away at how rich the culture and landscapes were. Yet, there were moments (desert scene) where it felt as if we had been transported from India to another country, as there were literally no other people around. A stark contrast to the cities.

MUSIC FROM ARTLIST – Artlist is the most incredible platform where I source all music content for my films and videos. What makes it great for people like us, is that you only pay a small yearly fee, and get unlimited downloads and usages. No more extortionate licencing fees!

Sustainable Architecture: ‘Anandaloy In Bangladesh’ – Made of Bamboo & Mud

designed by german architect anna heringer, ‘anandaloy’ is a community center and workshop in bangladesh that is made from mud and bamboo. located in rudrapur, a village in the country’s dinajpur district, the two-storey building contains a therapy center for people with disabilities at ground level and a fair-trade textile manufacturing workshop for local women on the first floor. below a big ramp that connects the two levels, protective cave-like spaces provide settings for recreation or solitude.

Bangladesh, to the east of India on the Bay of Bengal, is a South Asian country marked by lush greenery and many waterways. Its Padma (Ganges), Meghna and Jamuna rivers create fertile plains, and travel by boat is common. On the southern coast, the Sundarbans, an enormous mangrove forest shared with Eastern India, is home to the royal Bengal tiger.

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.
