Bamboo Yoga Retreat

From my recent visit to India to shoot a promotional video for the award-winning Bamboo Yoga Retreat as well as an editorial version for Airline Staff Rates.

The filming process was fairly straightforward and it was a real pleasure working with the retreat’s staff and management. The story concept was to follow Myria, one of the resident yoga instructor’s and a former model from Hamburg, as she enjoyed a day and an evening at Bamboo Yoga Retreat.

As usual, an eclectic range of gear was involved in the shoot – most notably the new Sony A7III and Gopro Hero 6. I opted to not bring the drone to India after reading about hefty fines and even risk of incarceration. So, the initial drone footage was captured by a local fellow with a DJI Spark.

What isn’t immediately apparent in the video is how incredibly hot it was. The monsoon season had arrived a little early and during midday, the temperature nudged 35C. Which is fine if you’re snoozing underneath a parasol. Only late at night did it cool off a bit. I suppose it’s fortunate that the intense heat and humidity in Asia eludes me in between these gigs…
