G. Ramachandran wins the Asian Television Award for Best Editing - Long Form category for 'The Great Descent'

Ramachandran says, "The most challenging editing task was reducing more than 48 hours of footage, shot on location by several camera units rolling simultaneously. The picture-postcard frames of the valley were inter cut with action packed white water rafting sequences. Parallel narratives and inter-cutting sequences added impact and were used to tell the story."

The Great Descent was also highly commended for Best Direction - Long Form category directed by Chandramouli Basu. "It was fun to shoot despite the tough terrain and mad logistics," says Basu.

The Great Descent is a documentary film on an international expedition down the Brahmaputra river. The team comprised internationally renowned white water enthusiasts from all over the world. Covering 160 kms down the river, which for all practical purposes, was an uncharted territory.
