Top Aerial Travel Videos: “Serenity 8K” By Vadim Sherbakov (2020)

Filmed and Edited by: Vadim Sherbakov

Remastered in 8K “Serenity” is a non-narrative short drone film, produced with the unique camera angle, facing straight down at -90º at the wonderful texture of earth landscapes.

Because of this and the subjects it captures, you can watch this film both horizontally or vertically. Here is a horizontal version, but you can see the vertical one, on my Instagram or IGTV.

The film itself is a 3 minutes blend of total tranquility and calmness that allows you to escape reality for just a short while. Shot in different places on earth such as Iceland, Norway, Spain, Portugal, Belarus and Russia, it shows the unique and gorgeous landscape at an unusual angle. So bring up the volume or put on headphones and immerse in it.

Travel & Adventure Film: “Pathfinder” In Norway By Adam Rubin, Dan Lior (2020)

Created by: Adam Rubin and Dan Lior
Production Company: Raised by Wolves

Pathfinder is a tale about the human spirit.

The film follows six world-class slack-liners on a mission deep into the Norwegian mountains to attempt something that’s never been seen before: Walking a thin line, elevated in the vastness between two colossal cliffs, illuminated only by the mystical northern lights.

The yearning that drives adventurers and explorers to climb the highest peaks, sail endless oceans, and cross vast deserts in the name of progress, is the same passion that drives these slack-liners to attempt what has still been unclaimed.

Through the extreme conditions and endless challenges, we learn about their elemental desire to explore the limits of humankind.

World Happiness Report: Nordic Countries Top The 2020 Rankings – Autonomy And Freedom Of Choices

World Happiness Report 2020Nordic citizens experience a high sense of autonomy and freedom, as well as high levels of social trust towards each other, which play an important role in determining life satisfaction.

2020 World Happiness Report Rankings 2017 - 2019

Read Report

From 2013 until today, every time the World Happiness Report (WHR) has published its annual ranking of countries, the five Nordic countries – Finland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and Iceland – have all been in the top ten, with Nordic countries occupying the top three spots in 2017, 2018, and 2019. Clearly, when it comes to the level of average life evaluations, the Nordic states are doing something right, but Nordic exceptionalism isn’t confined to citizen’s happiness.

No matter whether we look at the state of democracy and political rights, lack of corruption, trust between citizens, felt safety, social cohesion, gender equality, equal distribution of incomes, Human Development Index, or many other global comparisons, one tends to find the Nordic countries in the global top spots.

Top New Travel Videos: “Heart Of The Arctic Winter” In Norway (4K)

Filmed and Edited by: ADRIEN MAUDUIT (Night Lights Films)

Believe it or not, we didn’t have that much of a winter. Even in Arctic Norway! Since November, 13 consecutive extra-tropical cyclones have brushed the coast of Norway affecting even the coldest places of the country. As a consequence, lots of positive temperatures and rain on top of the snow, somehow destroying the typical arctic wonderland.

However in between the lukewarm rainstorms, the cold came back and allowed for short periods of freezing temperatures and snow. In these moments it was important for me to get out there whenever I could and capture all I could get. Cold also meant clearer skies and as a result aurora. Nonetheless it was never as easy as that because of the solar minimum we are at. It means lower auroral activity and fewer big shows.

Wave Cloud Sand II short film by Matt Kleiner 2019

Ten years ago I uploaded my first video to Vimeo titled WAVE CLOUD SAND. The idea was loosely based on finding beauty in the in-between moments that surrounded my projects at the time. Ten years later that same sentiment holds true and these are those moments from more recent travel throughout Australia, Chile, Mexico, Norway, and Hawaii. The moments when no one is around, views are unobstructed, nature is in its natural state, and perfect waves are left untouched.
