I was looking for a solution for quite a while. How to make an institution like Aish visually interesting was really the main challenge. So the idea was to conduct the interviews with Aish participants at different locations in NYC and have the atmosphere play a part and role in this video. We organized around 25 interviews in front of 25 different sights in Manhattan. We filmed during daytime and nighttime.
The challenge then became the sound. The outside noise was very noticeable during the interviews. In post-production I added more city noise in order to have it match with the footage and to give it an acoustic feel.
I think it was a great idea to include the marriage part. That added another dimension and made it more personal. It gives an idea of who the people are and what they personally gained by going to Aish.
