Video of the Day: A VHS Style Journey Through India in 4 Minutes


This video of David Aufdembrinke’s six-week trip to India might have been a lot more boring if it weren’t for some fantastic editing and some really unique colour grading. I don’t fully understand how the final effect was achieved but I know it involved an old VHS tape, a magnet, and lots of compositing. The editing style is very similar to that crazy video from Turkey, and if you’re an editor you may find yourself trying to advance frame by frame to understand how certain sequences were cut together.

Feel Good Video of the Day: B-Boy Culture Breaking Out of Mumbai’s Biggest Slum


I really enjoyed this mini-doc that is essentially a lighthearted Indian B-boy version of Billy Elliot. 15-year old Vikram lives in Dharavi, a slum in Mumbai, India. It’s the largest slum in India, and actually one of the largest in the world. He tells his parents he’s going out to get milk but secretly he is learning to break.

Let’s Colour

A couple months ago I received an invitation to Jodhpur, India, to be a part of the Let’s Colour project. The idea was to bring colour to community spaces around the world in an effort to encourage the people in those areas.

I got a rush visa and was all set to go but there was a mix-up with my flights and I couldn’t get there in time. Lucky for us, award-winning director Adam Berg made it to India (as well as London, Paris, and Rio de Janeiro) and has put together a beautiful look at this inspiring project.
