    Ever wonder what goes into the making of an original score? Take a peek within and see the magic that is made by musicians Samuel D. Ross and Jared Jensen as they collaborate on the score for 'Journey to Kathmandu'.

  3. Tea in Thamel Short

    4m 10s · Downloadable

    This was the short that I filmed during an early trip to Nepal. Starring Prem Aryal (and his infectious smile!), it would serve as inspiration for the larger film.

  4. Camera Goes Down in Kathmandu

    2m 16s · Downloadable

    Five days into shooting 'Journey', I experience the independent (ie low budget) filmmaker's biggest nightmare - my camera dies. After this experience, I promised myself never to be put into this type of situation ever again.

  5. Bus Ride From Hell

    2m 43s · Downloadable

    Often when filming in developing countries, you have the (mis)fortune of taking local forms of transport. In this clip, I share what it's like to take bus transportation on the biggest holiday of the Nepalese year.

  6. Toilet and Rakshi

    1m 17s · Downloadable

    Sometimes when filming in a remote part of the world you get sick. Really sick. (Ah, the never-ending perils of filming in a developing country!)

    My trekking guide/translator/fixer, Raj Kumar Thapa, discusses a sure-fire local remedy for my persistent stomach problems.

  7. Journey to Kathmandu Trailer 2010

    I cut this trailer shortly after returning from filming in Nepal and, if nothing else, is a great example of how often what you initially think a film will be about is not at all the story that you end up with. Especially in documentary filmmaking, the story evolves in ways never imagined.

    This was certainly the case with 'Journey to Kathmandu'. And after viewing this early trailer, we can all be thankful that the director had the good enoug...

  8. The Money in the Shoes

    5m 27s · Downloadable

    On one of the days filming in the mountains, I slipped and nearly fell down the side of a rather steep hill. Ever dependable and ever aware porter, Pemba Tamang, gracefully pulled my butt (and camera!) to safety. In the process, he tore up his shoe, which I tried to replace.

    Confusion (and hilarity) ensued...

  9. Original 'J2K' Trailer

    2m 8s · Downloadable

    This is the original trailer that served as the jumping-off point for the film. I used this to drum up initial interest in the film and would garner an early grant from the Regional Arts & Culture Council.

    This is a great example of how a simple teaser - cut before any actual footage of a film is shot - can be made with stills, text, music, and a little bit of imagination.
