So 3 guys, in 44 days, traveled to 11 countries, with 2 cameras and captured almost a terabyte of footage…
After some seriously hardcore editing and probably 20 redbulls, they were able to pull together three 60 second narratives that clearly define travel. ( excluding all the layover and waiting shenanigans)
Each short film features a unique style of storytelling. MOVE uses a bunch of tightly spliced clips that work together in a stop motion manner. EAT begins with a split screen of plated dishes and then shifts to close ups of them begin devoured/enjoyed. LEARN tells the best narrative and seems to have the strongest message of connecting with the cultures of countries visited.
If you didn’t have wanderlust before, you sure do now. Check out more of Director Rich Merrki’s work on tumblr
