Get Bitten by the Travel Bug: STA Australia's DSLR Shorts Span 38,000 Miles

I won't be surprised if you've already seen these, given the first short here has 3.3 million views at the time of this posting. Not bad for a couple of short commercials sponsored by STA Australia and shot on the Canon 5D Mark II and 7D. This triumvirate of travel videos covers 3 guys, 44 days, 11 countries, 18 flights, 38 thousand miles, and a terabyte of footage, and are based on concepts of "movement, learning and food." Here they are:

I don't know about you, but these clips -- the first one especially -- make me want to hit the road. Full credits on Vimeo.

Something like that you have a to plan ahead of time and shoot a ton of footage of the guy walking towards and away from the camera on a tripod at the same level. Then you just cut it at the same distance from the camera for each clip. I'm thinking they did a little zooming and cropping to make it look as perfect as it did.

Wow...!
I love kids who teach us new things.
I taught film and television at UBC - best experience - pre-schoolers.
The Open Mind Concept is FAB.
A precious resource.
Kids are cool.

Worse class - teaching teachers.
They suffer from the closed mind syndrome.
Give me the uninhibited mind.....pure joy.
