Top New Travel Videos: “Amazing Amorgos” In Greece” By Joerg Daiber

Filmed, Edited and Directed by: Joerg Daiber

I will never understand why so many people go to such an obvious Insta-tourist-trap like Santorini when there are so many amazing alternatives in Greece. Take Amorgos for instance. It’s the easternmost island in Greece’s Cyclades island group. With a land area of just 121 square kilometers, the island has a population of nearly 2000 people. It’s incredibly beautiful and no mass tourism is spoiling the fun so far.

Timelapse Travel Videos: “Move II” In The USA By Aaron Keigher (2019)

Filmed, Edited and Directed by: Aaron Keigher

Original Music by: Robert Levin

“We see in order to move; we move in order to see.”
-William Gibson

There is perpetual, dynamic and never-ending motion all around us. And this motion has a rhythm to it. It is the rhythm of our life — a beat that has become so normal and day-to-day that few of us take the time to see and feel it and even fewer of us take the time to bask in it.

When we experience the world, we encounter this movement and rhythm happening at different tempos. Whether it is the movement within our own body — our heart beat, breathing, walking — or the the different speeds of the movement in the world and universe around us, the various tempos of motion are a polyphonic rhythm that create the symphony of life.

Move II Timelapse Travel Film By Aaron Keigher 2019

Some motion we perceive easily — the movement of people, cars, or the trees blowing in the wind. But some motion, such as the rotation of the stars or the changes in shadows and light, we, as humans, are not always aware of unless we take the time to notice. Time-lapse photography is a unique tool that can be used to help us see this movement and it can even help us see the motion we can perceive in a different way. And when we pair timelapse with dynamic polyphonic and polyrhythmic music, we can begin to feel that the rhythm of that motion deep in our soul. “Move II” is all about intertwining timelapse photography and music to see and feel that motion both in nature and in the city.

It was a true honor and privilege to collaborate with Robert Levin on the music for “Move II”. His beautiful original score blends together the rhythms and melodies of our world and perfectly captures the feeling of movement that surrounds us at all times. When I first met with Robert to begin working on the music for Move II, I knew it needed something that was unique and special in order to accentuate the movement of the universe, little did I know how perfectly he would capture that idea and deliver a magical and dynamic original score for the film.

A heartfelt thank you to Steve Bill, one of my musical mentors and a true friend over the past 20 years, for introducing me to Robert Levin and for allowing us to use his studio at Room 368 Productions to record the score for this video. Thank you to Ethan Bill for his time, talent and patience recording, mixing and engineering the music for the video. This was a huge undertaking and we could not have asked for anyone better to work with. I would also like to extend a huge thank you to all of the incredibly talented musicians who took part in the recording of the music and helped to breathe life into this film. Your talents and passion are second-to-none.

I am very excited to share with you “Move II”, a continuation of the original short-film “Move” that I released a few years ago. (vimeo.com/aaronkeigherphotography/move) Join me for a few moments to take a step back and experience the rhythm of the movement that surrounds us all.

Top New Travel Videos: “The Golden Harvest” In North Vietnam (2019)

Filmed, Edited and Directed by: Dennis Schmelz

Beautiful golden rice terraces and green tea hills – welcome to North Vietnam. After a 10 hours car ride from Hanoi through the Vietnamese mountains I finally arrived at the beautiful rice terraces of Mu Cang Chai. The long journey was worth it – I’ve never seen something like this before. The rice has already colored from green to yellow and is ready for the harvest – glad that I made it to this place while the „golden season“.

The Prophecy Iceland Cinematic Poem Short Film Directed by Henry Behel 2019

I filmed this in four days while traveling around Iceland alone. The sun set at midnight and rose at 3am, but it never really got dark. I shot as much of the day as I could, stopping everywhere that caught my eye. I found places off the road and slept on a pad under the stars. I got rained on and blasted with wind, but I felt alive.

I have made a habit of traveling alone in wild places. I feel magic in the howling wind, the ice on my face, the sand in my shoes. My mind can drift back to the beginning of time or out to the stars where the earth is just a dot. I finally feel the connection and peace I so long for, and yet is so elusive in my daily life.

No place has inspired me like this more than Iceland. This film is how it feels to me. Beautiful and serene, but dark and violent as well. Time moves differently here. The land still exists in some ancient forgotten epoch, when earth was still lava rock soup.
