The folks at Balcony Nine Media were kind enough to share their awesome A Boulder Summer video with me so I can share it with you. They created it for the 2014 TEDx Boulder conference. It’s a tribute to summer in what I consider to be one of the greatest cities in the country. Enjoy.
In the spring of 2014, director Pau Garcia Laita was invited by the Catalan Tourist Board to create a video showcasing Catalonia, Spain. He spent a week shooting around the province and the end result is this playful and colorful tiltshift of Girona.
Flow-motion videographer Rob Whitworth and place-branding pioneer JT Singh are no strangers to Double Takes. Their latest collaboration takes us on a tour of North Korea’s Pyongyang through time-lapse photography, animation, slow motion and a variety of other creative techniques.
“Enter Pyongyang is above all an invitation to explore,” says Dr. Parag Khannaon on the video’s Vimeo page. “Few places in the world have been as hermetically sealed as North Korea, but Koryo Tours has made it possible not just to see North Korea but to engage with it in ways that were impossible until very recently. This is a window of opportunity not to be missed. If Pyongyang is no longer off limits, no place is.”
Cuba remains much of a mystery to many American travelers. Ezaram Vambe’s In Havana will certainly pique your interest in the county if you haven’t had the pleasure of visiting yet. This short video is almost as good as actually being there.
Anyone who has been to Hong Kong can appreciate this online exhibition of their neon signs. Anyone who has not been there will likely be mesmerized by the photos. Curated by Hong Kong’s visual cultural museum M+, the exhibition received more than 4,000 photo submissions. The exhibit also photos maps the submitted photos and includes a video demonstrating how Hong Kong’s famous neon signs are made.
Los Angeles-based commercial director, editor and self-proclaimed globetrotter (his videos certainly support this claim) Brandon Li captured a side of Dubai very different from the one most of us are used to seeing. Tucked away, far from the opulence, Li films one of the city’s shipping yards. His short video conveys the frantic atmosphere I assume surrounds the place, while slowing down to pause on the details that make this place so unique.
Diana Weschke was kind enough to reach out and share her videos and travels with me, and I’m so glad she did. The German-born photographer and filmmaker has been traveling the world and creating short videos of her experiences. Diana, along with her friend Birk, is currently on an adventure in Alaska, driving some 6,000 miles in a 1989 Dodge Ram van. Together, they’re filming their experiences, which will be released as a full-length documentary later this year.
This is a great marketing campaign from Travel Oregon. The spot champions the state’s many impressive offerings and questions why none made the office 7 Wonders list. The Oregon Coast, Columbia River Gorge, , Painted Hills, , Mt. Hood, Crater Lake, and Smith Rock make the list of the state’s must visits. Watch the video to a glimpse of them in all their splendor.
