When the pilgrims visit mon-asteries, they used to bring Yak butter as a fuel offering to help keep the candles burring. Today, vegetable oil is used which burns much cleaner and is actually much healthier for the Monks. This monk is tending to one of the monetary candles.
I had very little footage to work with in this sequence and there was also very little light. So I decided to slow the footage down which in addition to adding a nice dramatic quality to his work allowed me to get enough footage to make the sequence work.
