Innovative Home Tours: ‘Ultra-Modern Shipping Container’ – Kamloops, BC

In this video, we’re touring a really unique and modern shipping container home in Kamloops, BC, and hearing from the family’s story of how and why they host their shipping container on Airbnb. Cathi and her husband Trevor downsized to this small space three years ago after their sons had left home and the couple has been living in it full-time ever since.

The main house has 2 bedrooms, a kitchen and a living room, and a full bathroom. It’s built with 4 recycled shipping containers. There’s an additional studio space that’s connected to the main house with a breezeway and it is set up as a fully self-contained micro cabin, plus there’s an awesome outdoor kitchen with a dining space and wood-fired pizza oven.

Travel Videos: ‘The Blue Ridge’ In The Carolinas

Back in March, it became clear that I’d be spending a lot of time at home in the Carolinas. The nearby Blue Ridge Mountains have been the backdrop for so many of my ideas, but I’ve never made them a main character in my work. I took this year as an opportunity to do just that. This project gave me a much-needed incentive to rediscover and truly appreciate the landscapes in my backyard- I hope it inspires you to do the same.

New Travel Video: ‘Iceland – The Frozen Kingdom’

Filmed and Edited by: Morten Svane

I shot this in february of 2020 in Iceland, just before the pandemic started. We were on a job, but managed to get some time to shoot a bit for ourselves as well. We had planned 3 days of roadtripping in Iceland after the job, but we got hit by a snowstorm and got trapped in Seyðisfjörður for 3 days. When we finally got out and took a place back to Reykjavik, we only had a bit over 24 hours before we had to head home again. We got really lucky and experienced everything from heavy snowfall at Skógafoss to a beautiful sunset by the coast at Vik. It is not a lie when Icelanders say: “If you don’t like the weather in Iceland, just wait five minutes”.

The voiceover is by Andrea who is Icelandic and helped me find the poem as well. Thank you Andrea! The music is from Artlist and the film was edited and graded in DaVinci Resolve. You can follow me on Instagram here: https://www.instagram.com/morten.svane/
