WE ARE TRAVELLERS
Almost 10 years into this project and we are so close to sharing it with the world! After learning about "Life " the director Rahul Himanti Pandey has spent the past 4 years getting approval and consent from all the parties and participants. The production team has finished the first production phase and is now going for the shooting and post-production second phase. Let's get this done!
Hello My Global Community!
My name is Rahul Himanti Pandey. I’m a filmmaker and the Director of Himanti Productions. After working in the Bollywood Indian TV & Film Industry for 15 years I now make Documentaries,Travel Shows,TV Series and Films for TV Channels and online mass media.
My primary goal as a filmmaker is to turn the intangible into the tangible.
I have always wanted to make something good for humanity, Love and Peace and now our team is in the process of making a Travel Documentary Film called “WE ARE TRAVELERS”. It will be a message to the world featuring funny, touching, heart-wrenching, inspirational and life-changing experiences in the form of a TV Series dedicated to Peace in the World.
The best stories for the movie are the lives of people and our inner world.
WHAT IS "WE ARE TRAVELLERS" ABOUT? WHO WE ARE AND WHY "WE ARE TRAVELLERS" ?
The film talks about world peace and peace within the human mind a philosophy of a life that is too short and beautiful to be wasted on violence and hate… an attempt to understand why people enforce violence instead of living in harmony and peace. It will also include the story of my life and my understanding of this project. The documentary will attempt to explain how ignorance makes bad Karma and asks how did this negative energy come into the world?
“WE ARE TRAVELLERS”is an international project. People from different corners of the planet will go to the Himalayas for a journey into the mountains and shoot a world-class reality travel documentary film TV series. We want to make a film that can answer the question, “How can we maintain inner peace and achieve world peace?” The documentary hopes to inspire viewers to pay attention to their inner world in order to attain peace in the outside world. It will seek to raise consciousness about the value of friendly relationships between countries, within religions and between nationalities and cultures all over the world, and hopefully the inspiration to achieve it.
Humanity has survived two World Wars but still hasn’t learned to solve problems diplomatically. Right now there are more than 40 ongoing armed conflicts in the world. Syria, Afghanistan, Sudan, Somalia, Iraq,South Sudan, Gaza City, Libiya, Yeman, Egypt, Ukraine, Turkey, Nigeria,Maxico,Palestine,Cameroon, India and Pakistan. The number of people who have died because of these armed conflicts are close to 100,000. But wars are also very expensive. According to Global Peace Index, about 13% of the world’s gross national production is wasted on war conflicts; $14 000 000 000 000 every year - that’s enough to feed all the world’s people living below the poverty line.
Terrorism is a plague of the 21st century. The accelerating number of terroristic acts is sky high. According to Global Peace Index in the year 2016, the world became less peaceful than 2015 as the number of deaths increased over 30,000. And since the year 2000 more than 160,000 people have died due of terrorism.
We believe so and we want to show the world that it is possible. By travelling together in the Himalayas, people from different nationalities and religions are going to share the meditative calm of the majestic mountains and experience the inner peace that impacts our daily lives and in turn promotes peace throughout the world. There are participants from 40 countries (India, USA, Russia, China, France, Ukraine, Haiti, Poland, Lithuania, Nepal, Morocco, Serbia, Kazakhstan, Turkey, United Kingdom, Venezuela, Uzbekistan, Thailand, South Africa, Singapore, Peru, Denmark, Ecuador, Greece, Hungary, Israel, Malaysia, Romania, Belarus, Brazil, Australia, Belgium, Canada, Egypt, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Mexico, Spain and Italy) who will take part in the journey and filming of the project. It will be a challenge for these young participants as they will be total strangers to each other and they will meet for the first time in Delhi-India, for an epic two-month journey.

"WE ARE TRAVELLER" - "WAT"
Production House Website:
"WE ARE TRAVELLERS " is a Buddhist expression for the interconnectedness of all life.
When you see beautiful human beings who fully embrace themselves and live life to their fullest potential, it sparks an energy that is infectious. By sharing that energy across the globe we can counteract the cycle of destructive and repetitive behavior that limits human potential.
Creating a community through “WE ARE TRAVELLERS” will encourage a multi-cultural awareness of self-love and self-reflection which has to start from within. By supporting the "WE ARE TRAVELLERS" project we start community dialogue about facing fears, detecting patterns and finding the courage to take action. This will be projected through the high quality professional application of media art, commentary and exploration invested in our film.
HERE ARE SOME PLACES WHERE YOUR DONATIONS CAN GO :
The film making process is complex and often extraordinarily expensive. From equipment rentals to location acquisition to crew care, your contributions can go a long way to assist in the creation of this film.
1) Help us to reach and inspire 7 billion around the world by contributing and getting the word out. By backing us and showing your support you are playing an active role in this process.
2) Change the life choices and trajectories of many people around the world and help to level up the playing field for everyone.
We believe that the fruits of the collaboration should be shared as widely as possible. Every person involved in this project is passionate about this cause. We have managed to accomplish a lot on a tiny budget, but much work remains to be done.
To make this film happen and continue this dialogue, we need funding for the second phase-shooting pre-production cost. Such as hiring an excellent creative team and crew in order to get the quality, this story deserves. A line producer, DP, actors, set decorator, script supervisor, AD, great sound gear and equipment, a makeup artist. We strongly believe in talent and the crew getting paid for their committed and passionate work. Furthermore, funding includes location costs, feeding talent and crew, money for the website, flyers and graphics and rehearsal space. Post-production bears the highest costs: hiring a great and passionate editor and colourist, who share the same vision as ours, to give the movie- the quality and finishing the touches- we envision for it.
You will not only get the warmest “Thank You” and the deepest appreciation from the bottom of our hearts, but also our awesome PERKS go from fun and creative Social Media Shout Outs to a short video of a word matching your name, credits in the film, having a coffee date with the creators, getting your own personal tour through India and receiving your own personalized artworks by awesome abstract artist of "WE ARE TRAVELLERS".
Besides helping a worthy cause, and earning yourselves a butt-load of good karma, there are PERKS to donating to "WAT"And every perk also includes the previous perks for smaller donations. So (EXAMPLE) if you give $350, you'll also receive the perks for $35, and $75.
So if you have any questions or thoughts please feel free to contact us.

As you can see, your contributions are vital to the creation of this project. However, you donors do not bear the full burden of financing the film: there are two other ways this film is getting funding. First, you can share it in your network and tell about this project. second, you can let us for sponsors that need to come from YOU — with your help we can reach our budget and put this crew in perfect position to make this movie. We are looking for $200,000 worth of funding for the first season four episode of this full length form documentary series. Here is a short breakdown of the type of costs we will face making this:
CASTING - We are doing some part of fiction, and bringing in the highest quality actors requires a lot of money. With your help, we can cast talented actors who will give amazing performances and help to publicize the film.
CREW - Somebody's gotta hold the camera! And that thing is heavy, so they need to be paid!
INSURANCE -This is a big cost for productions. Our equipment kit will need to be insured while we have it and we will need to be insured while we are shooting.
TRAVEL & EXPENSES - This is to cover travel costs, accommodation and food while shooting.
CATERING - You'd be surprised how much of a movie budget is eaten up by food! Your donations will help to feed and hydrate every member of our cast and crew throughout the shoot.
POST PRODUCTION - After filming the movie there's still lots of work to be done. Sound mixing, editing, colour correction and publicity are just a few costs that will pop up in post-production.

There is no doubt that producing a International Reality Travel Documentary Film TV Series on a low budget is a process that will face many hurdles. In the big-budget world, turning the money hose on problems will solve most challenges. That's not the case with low budget. We will have to be resourceful, creative and inventive when faced with our challenges, most of which we anticipate (and therefore prepare for), but there will always be those that blindside you. Both I and the producers have experience with low budget productions and so are well equipped and prepared to deal with whatever may come our way. We have a strong, collaborative and trusting relationship, bringing different skill sets to a shared, single objective and that is to make a film that will defy its humble origins.
