Tibet clips shot on a Nikon D90 for a short on the Guardian website. Edited in Final Cut Pro and graded using magic bullet looks. Not perfect but I hope you can see what is possible with a DSLR in the future, it is certainly good enough for the newspaper's website right now.
An exploration of some of the highest, most remote, and most challenging roads in the world, filmed while on a 4500km cross-Tibet cycling trip in 2007. A visual account of the local culture, the challenges faced there, and a sampling of the cycle touring lifestyle.
**UPDATE! This film won first place in Portable Film Festival/Lonely Planet TV's "Worldwide Encounters" competition! http://portable.tv/film/post/lonely-planet-announces-competition-winners/**
Pardon the nasal-sounding voiceover-- I had a horrible cold when I made this!
In 2008, Rabsal implemented its inaugural project to create a short documentary of Tibetan life with Tibetan high school students from Ganzi Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Sichuan Province. A training course was run for fifteen students who received four months classroom training in elementary filmmaking and photography, and then practical training in villages across Ganzi.

Debate and Discipline is a documentary produced by Rabsal that portrays the practice of debate in Tibetan Buddhism through the experiences of one monk. Through the spectacle of an annual debate event on the Tibetan plateau, we come to appreciate the discipline required to master the arguments of debate and understand the humanity that gives power and compassion to this religion. This is a 8min trailer.
