Going the distance is not about how far away will you get, But from what length you are willing to return.
Seldom, we get to do projects crafted with so much perseverance, honesty, and love. Shooting at one of the most humble places in the world – Ladakh and exploring a side we hadn’t seen before, be it the raw beauty of the place or the wholehearted emotions of its people – it was a process that got us close to the feeling of being a Himalayan. Their way of life made us think if we are missing a point when we say we need to go the distance in life. Maybe at times going the distance could mean going back, to your roots. This introspection is what fuelled our latest project ‘Home’ for the Royal Enfield Himalayan.
We would like to thank some really talented minds who got associated with the project because they felt what we felt. It was an ever-evolving collaboration where each crew member brought something special to the film. A project that started with a casual conversation about doing something meaningful to shaping a strong idea and concept, to multiple jamming sessions with some of the best writers in the industry, to finally shooting in the extreme winter conditions of Ladakh (-17°C at 17,000 Feet to be precise), to endless hours on the edit, grade, and music. Yes, it’s been a long journey and a beautiful one.

“For over 60 years, Royal Enfield has traveled the Himalayas. Out of these decades of experience, in 2016 Royal Enfield has released its first purpose-built adventure tourer, the Himalayan.
Shot in the very difficult climatic conditions of the highest reaches of Ladakh, the film traces the journey of the iconic motorcycle within the historical and mythical landscape that inspired and shaped it – the Himalayas.”
“At the end of this journey, the houses, the cars, all of the monetary gains as a whole will merely be insignificant. All that will truly matter is the growth of your offspring, and the guidance you can give them on their path to greatness.” A short film featuring BTO/KTM athlete, Andrew Short.

“There is a light that never goes out. It dwells deep inside us, giving us motivation and shaping our path.
That light is the flicker of creation.
The spark of an idea.
The outline of a design.
It is the desire that stokes our passions and makes us strive to go further.
This internal fire feeds our dreams and puts a glint in our eye.
It is the energy that ignites our creativity.
It tills the land.
It shapes and gives life to the medium being crafted.
Every creation is imbued with the being that created it, as if the medium is breathing in the spirit of the craftsman.
Isn’t that the most beautiful way of leaving a trace of our existence, of our time on this earth?
To create is the only way to traverse time, to wander through the ages.
It is the only way to become immortal, to be infinite.
If this light goes out, we die.”
