    Daily life in the Indian holy cities of Rishikesh, Haridwar, and Devprayag. This region lies in the foothills of the Himalayas where the Ganges River descends from the mountains. I visited not knowing what to expect, and I was both awed and saddened by the experience. The beauty of nature and the Hindu ceremonies contrasted with the poverty and suffering on the streets. The people I met had a high-spirited resilience that seemed to stem from surviving and maintaining their devotion through a challenging life. Music: Anamóg "We Wish It Was Never Light" Filmed on Sony A7s

          The beauty of the Nepali people shown through an array of video portraits. These type of portraits involve a certain amount of trust between those being filmed and the filmmaker. Such portraits bring an intimate and human perspective towards complete strangers.

            My work is for sale on Nimia https://app.nimia.com/profile/mmellway/videos Awarded Most Artistic Film at La 5° édition du Festival International du Film de Vacances More films and photography on my website. http://mmellway.wix.com/photography A journey through the culture and wild places of Bali, Indonesia. I've been to Indonesia many time in the past while travelling through Asia and I have always wanted to show people how I see Bali. Most of the time I hear travellers talking about Bali and its all negative. Too many beaches, too many drunk tourists, and too many eat pray lovers looking for spiritual awakening. I want to show them that at the heart of this place there is something that drew people here a long time ago. Something more than beaches and bars. I'm no good at writing so I wont attempt to tell you what makes this place special, see for yourself. This wasn't just a holiday for me, it was more like going home. Thanks to the amazing people of bali and all the people I travelled with along the way: Jeanette, Christina, Gede(and family),Dani, Sissi, Charly Music by Armand Amar Home I, Home II, Home III Camera/editing: Marty Mellway There are a couple of shots from Malaysia in there as well.

              Winner 2014 Travel Photographer of the Year, Video Category. http://www.tpoty.com/winners/2014 2013 saw the Maha Kumbh Mela. A Hindu festival held once every 144 years at the confluence of the Ganges and Yamuna rivers. This vast pilgrimage resulted in the largest single gathering of people ever in history. It is impossible to know the number of attendees but it is estimated that as many as 100 million visited the site over the period of the festival. Individuals, families and whole villages made the pilgrimage from the most rural parts of India to bathe at dawn in the sacred Ganges River.

                UPDATE click to see their epic conclusion - http://vimeo.com/61579213 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- similar to the rings shots of 2007, trash the dress of 2008, i would say that wedding concept films are currently very popular in the wedding film making industry today. when sameer + priya approached me to re-create their engagement i wasn't sure exactly how to approach it. at first thought, i had visions of wedding concept films that more then often are over dramatized, over/under acted; and/or utilized concepts that to me seem to have little to do with the couples real interests and personas. ultimately; my approach was to have sameer + priya drive their engagement story via their narrative, combined with the footage to shot to help visually unfold their story. simple + sweet. the goal was that this would be the first concept film that would be fun, cinematic but ultimately real (as possible). TECHNICAL + PRODUCTION TIDBITS for my industry friends and colleagues. shot with one cinematographer over the course of 3 days in NJ (think jersey shore) with a single Canon 5D MK II. the interviews were shot in natural light during the right time of day with a 5$ bounce card from walmart for fill. only several key sequences were storyboarded. with most of the sequences designed on the spot. the opening graphic was quickly animated by mark. everything shot in 24p mode, unless it was EXTREMELY windy (at sandy hook beach i had to overcrank my footage to via shooting in 30p) COLOR CORRECTION was via combination of fcp rgb balance, 2-way + 3-way colour corrector + newbluefx + modified mb filters. for my 'slower' lenses in lower light setttings (ie. f 2.8's); i employ the Cinestyle custom profile. This profile can extend the dynamic range in lower light conditions, but the image is horribly flat straight out of the camera and requires a very strong understanding of colour theory and cleanup ability to make the image feel warm and rich in tone, color and contrast. GLASS USED -Canon 45 TSE 2.8 - i utilized the tilt-shift heavily for this piece to further certain shots and sequences in which i felt would add an additional dimension in emphasizing the dream like state under which the engagement story was told. this lens is my lens choice in the tilt-shift family as it is closest to 35-50mm (my preferred focal lengths) -zeiss 35/2 zf, -zeiss 50 1.4 zf - bridal preps workhorse -zeiss 21/2.8 zf - steadicam pilot -zeiss makro 100/2 STABILIZATION -cinevate atlas 30, -manfrotto monopod 561hdv - best overall value for your money -additional stabilization in post provided my grateful sponsor NEWBLUE FX stabilizer. it is quicker, faster, more intuitive to use and more cost effective then all the competitors in the image stabilization software market. to those starting to tackle wedding concept films or even wedding cinematography in general, remember that sometimes less is more; as in more genuine. i have an abundance of wedding films (including sameer + priya's highlights) and commercials to showcase shortly. -myw follow me via facebook - film@michaelywong.com twitter.com/michaelywong www.michaelywong.com if you would like to share films; feel free to add me as a contact ton vimeo. thank you.

Occurring the day after the full moon in the month of Phalguna, or early March, participants hold a bonfire, throw colored powder at each other, and go absolutely crazy.
