An unforgettable visit to the Taj Mahal in India, consumed by a fascination of it’s visitors desperation to capture their moments on camera.
As I myself spent most of my time capturing their moments, it became brutally clear to me that neither this film, nor their photographs can ever capture the heart-wrenching beauty of that stunning building, yet only succeed in completely detaching us from the moment itself.
No actors, artists or performers were used in the making of this film, only real people and real moments.
Shot, edited, and directed by Simon Mulvaney, using a Sony A7sii, Canon 24-70mm f2.8 lens, Metabones EF to E-Mount adaptor, Tiffen VND filter and Adobe Premiere Pro CC.
Music: ‘Castells’ by Armand Amar, featuring City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, from the album ‘Human’
I’m currently on a round-the-world trip, working my way east from India to the United Kingdom. For more films like this, feel free to subscribe to my Vimeo Channel and visit smulvaney.tv to find out more.
