Magic of India

It was our first time in India, a place that had always been high on my list. Erik, Vunkki and I arrived just in time to experience the colourful celebrations of holi, where coloured starch powder is thrown, with water throwing and many other prank like activities that take place on every street. We had the experience of a lifetime getting involved in the celebrations and being covered in colours. Unfortunately due to the restrictions of the COVID19 virus covering the globe, we had to leave India early to go back to our homes. We planned to visit many more places North and South, however we could only stay for 10 days, and in that time we visited Delhi, Vrindivan, Mathura, Orcha, Agra, and Varanasi. However even though we didn’t see all of India’s amazing locations, it gives us a great reason to come back again!

  2. IM from india what i would say about this video u nailed it but but but u failed to put anything that would show the depth about the country i think a fine research about a place would help you make much better videos beacuse thats what wanderers do right get to know about a place real goooood fell the life in it!

  3. This is so relaxing Ben
    I never wondered this type of Broll could also be created in Indian places
    Lots of love from India πŸ’•

  10. those seamless transitions though! when you said “perhaps only the most true wizards can see”, but you the after effects wizard….

  11. Loved this one. Its one of those video where multiple YouTube videos will come up with breakup and transitions explained. Just like “the watch tower of Turkey” . Superb job

  12. Man this is my first video that I am watching from your channel as one of my friend suggested me to watch your videos .I get inspired to learn after effects.I wanna be a film maker too.I totally become your fan by watching it. You are amazing..Like you are one of the craziest film makers I have ever seen . Your transition that is really crazy and amazing . You just nailed it .If you make tutorial videos of making those transition it will be great

  13. Amazing effects, specially the futuristic sound…India is a huge country, this is just a micro glimpse of our thousands of years of culture.

  14. Well done Benn, wauw! From a storytelling point of view I think you have come a long way & to then combine it with the start and finish of the magic was such a cool touch to get me hooked.
