As told in the narration (used the camera mic and converted the sound to a WAV file) at the beginning of the video, I was sent to India for about 3 months (72 days) this past summer of 2010 for a new job. Despite being there for that long, most of the footage here was shot over 8 days (4 weekends). Included are places in India like Bangalore, Mysore, Delhi, Jaipur and the Kerala highlands, but the best shots were taken in a place called Coorg. Lots of extremely nice local people and beautiful countryside landscapes.
Filmed on a Canon T2i or 550D along with a cheap $15 tripod and an indislider mini. Just 2 lenses: Sigma 30mm f1.4 and Tamron 70-300mm f4 - 5.6.
Edited on free software. The India map/flag was done with stills and time lapse software (also free).
