During a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Southern India, we had the chance to capture some sights and sounds while we made our way from Chennai to Pondicherry on motorbikes. The trip was overwhelming and a truly eye-opening experience. We at VBF knew that it would be very difficult to re-create on film the actual experience of being on Indian streets alongside thousands of cars, tuk-tuks, cows, goats, and dogs. The visuals, sounds, and smells created a sensory overload that can only be experienced by being there. But, hopefully this film gives you a sense of what it was like to be immersed in the surroundings and experience the amazing places along the coast of Southern India.
