  2. 3 years, 15 countries, 6286 photographs. This continues where I last left on my travels around the world since the release of my first time lapse, "Time Is Nothing", vimeo.com/34400428.

    Over the last 3 years, I've traveled through 15 countries and captured a series of photographs in almost every city I visited, compressing several minutes to over an hour's worth of real time and movement into a few seconds of video. From Burning's Black Rock City to celebrating the Holi Festival of Colors in India, the world is just a damn beautiful place.

  3. For those of you who followed my travels around the world in my "Time Is Nothing" video (vimeo.com/34400428), this is a little glimpse of some of the adventures I had along the way while making that video.

    I put together this compilation of "travel tips" using personal footage of my travels and many of the interesting people, places and things I encountered along the way.

    It was also selected as the runner-up for Viator's "Win Your Dream Travel Job" contest.

    Equipment: Mostly shot on a Panasonic GF-1 and a Samsung NV24HD. Edited in Final Cut Pro.

    Music: Perpetuum Mobile by Penguin Cafe Orchestra

    Special thanks to Dan Hirons, Joey Seich and Carol Trieu for all your help, support and patience.

    To all my fellow travelers whose company made each step of the way all the more memorable and unique, I want you to know that however short an appearance you made in the video, you've left an impact far greater and long-lasting than the few seconds that each city appeared in the video.

    To my family, thank you for bearing with me and worrying about my health and safety with every dodgy bus ride and new country I found myself in each day.
