We are greatly inspired by nature’s beauty. And that feeling was especially strong while we were visiting Indonesia. At first, we couldn’t even believe that all this is real. Giant trees with leaves as big as people. Beaches with waves higher than most houses. Volcanoes surrounded by deserted valleys with unbelievable colours.
Our project aims to immerse the viewer into that fantastic atmosphere: with every frame of video footage, with every note of orchestral music. We want you to really feel the overwhelming beauty of those flights. We have been working on this project for a 1,5 year. And every day of work brought us back to those places and the emotions we experienced.
We lived on Java and Bali for 4 months and it allowed us to feel the islands, to absorb the local atmosphere. It helped us to find the best angles and composition to capture the immense beauty of Indonesia. And now we’re finally ready to share it with you.
