This is how you do a tourism video. It’s not a brochure, it’s a story. This film – aside from the somewhat leading voice over – tells a story visually, going from desert to harvest to end of the know world. It makes you feel but not showing faces for most of the film, and then showing them at just the right moment. Really compelling stuff.
Also very personal. It’s the story of a guy and his girlfriend travelling around Chile with some insanely high end Canon kit. It’s called a story for tomorrow, and it’s by gnarly bay productions. So visit Chile.
It’s amazing what cinematography can do. If you could tell the true, personal story of Sri Lanka, the visuals would blow people’s minds.
