EVERYTHING STARTS FROM A CHALLENGE
This video was made in 10 days following a challenge launched with the illustrious Amine from Japania and Pope San the big boss. The goal: to shoot and edit a 5-minute video in 10 days to present our city (Tokyo / Seoul) while respecting the constraints imposed by each:
- Integrate a Timelapse (constraint imposed by Pope)
- Integrate a plan on a zipper (constraint imposed by Amine)
- Give the speak to a Japanese / Korean (constraint imposed by me)
Our desire was to motivate ourselves in these difficult times (which do not really make you want to make travel video) to offer positive content, which makes travel, while trying to deliver something different of what we are used to doing.
We have not presented or talked enough about this challenge publicly but in private we really gave our all, motivated and pulled up to push ourselves to come out the best in a short time … And I am very proud of our 3 videos which are all very different in terms of approach, sensitivity and technique but which come together in the same passion!
So I leave you on the superb videos of Amine and Pope …
