24 Hour Travel Video Marathon: Part 1
Through my Twitter feed (via Jeff of EuroTravelogue.com) , I received – and watched – the beautifully filmed Norway in Motion:
I decided to stage a 24-hour marathon on Sunday, and shared the best travel videos via our Twitter feed. We Tweeted a video every hour and, during peak usage hours, we threw in some extras, totaling fifty-three videos. (These will be broken down into batches, which will be released in a series of posts so as not to crash our site!) The videos range from those captured by amateur videographers, to those produced by full-blown tourism boards with a budget.
If you missed the marathon, I’ve summed it up below. Some of these are truly Hollywood-worthy. Please give a ‘thumbs up’ to the producers as you watch. Thanks!
Note: Videos uploaded from Vimeo had several problems buffering = Have Patience.
The Longest Way
Christoph Rehage walked 4646 km/2887 miles across China in roughly a year – while growing a beard.
A rocking soundtrack and fast-cut editing – with some fireworks and sunsets – make this a dramatic video that will make you book a flight to Idaho!
This is the third installment in a trilogy on Dubai. It was shot over three weeks, uses over 20,000 images, and has a dramatic soundtrack to boot.
This 3 1/2-minute short is a whiplash tour through Vietnam, and was a nominee for the Vimeo Film Fest awards.
2 Backpackers have dozens of video on offer, but this is our favorite. An informal concert provided by a local musician has this couple’s El Salvador experience as a backdrop.
This is a time-lapse classic featuring London at night. (The English really love the Tube, don’t they?)
Mark of Migrationology.com is the guru of South East Asian cuisine. He’s both entertaining and informative in his many, many videos. Here’s an amuse bouche.
