Experiencing Interruptions?

Thus, I Travel

"The core of man’s spirit comes from new experiences." - Jon Krakauer, Into the Wild.

"Thus, I Travel" talks about the kind of transformation traveling can bring in human lives. It is the story of a travel filmmaker who traveled across India to understand that the crux of life is to accept other people regardless of their cultures, languages, ethnicities or religions. He talks about the kind of experiences he had when staying with strangers in his journey and answers the question as to why one has to travel.

Director Biography - M S N Karthik

Hello! I am MSN Karthik, an Independent Filmmaker and a Product Guy from India, without any formal education in the Film. For many, films are a hobby. For some, they are a passion. But for me, films are life. Films are what shaped me since my childhood. I watched Rob Williams in awe, as he stood up on his desk to inspire his students to seize the day, in Dead Poets Society. Film seemed a powerful medium to communicate ideas and I wanted to become a filmmaker when I grew up. But in India joining such a profession was not encouraged and I had to take up an IT job to please others. But the filmmaking bug in me never died. At 24, I started honing my skills by sheer desk research. I built my own DIY filming & lighting gear and made my 1st documentary film early this year, without any professional guidance but with unparalleled conviction to deliver my story.

I realized storytelling is what defines me and is what I would want to do forever. So, I started traveling across India in search of untold stories. I covered Bodh Gaya in the East to Rajasthan in the West and Himalayas in the North. Such a vast country seemed very small in front of my quest to tell an engaging story. I did this all by myself, without any crew or mentorship. In this journey of becoming a one man band filmmaker, I started documenting the processes I followed to help budding filmmakers achieve their vision.
