Absolutely brilliant work, George! I thoroughly enjoyed watching your film, which almost makes up for not being there. I look forward to seeing more. Zen UK
Thank you dear Zen.
I could not make it to that point I have wished. This is my first one, and so there are a lot of pitfalls with the film.
I really want to make a better film on trekking in Sikkim. I am collecting more information on sikkim to do it.
