I started 2016 off with an awesome week long shoot in Chennai, India for Royal Enfield & W+K! Working with the New Delhi office of W+K, I was tasked with Directing/DPing the "development" story of the New Royal Enfield Himalayan, a lightweight adventure bike. The final project incorporated footage from a previous motorcycle trip I took through Ladakh (the northern tip of India), archival testing footage from Royal Enfield, and new footage we shot on our week long trip. We spent a good chunk of the trip at the Royal Enfield Factories, which was a dream come true! It was amazing to see the legendary Royal Enfield factory (Which has been functional since the 1940s) and also the new Royal Enfield high tech factory south of Chennai. Even eating in the mess hall was awesome!
After we finished up with interviews and factory footage, we headed up to Andhra Pradesh, to film some riding footage with the new Himalayan. While the shoot was demanding, my awesome camera opt Andy Whitlatch managed to snap a few BTS photos.
One last note, the crews in Chennai are wonderful! The production, while challenging on many levels, went off super smooth thanks to amazing local support!
