Early 2012, we started a journey to Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Uruguay, Paraguay and Southern Brazil in our old and rusty Landrover. Once again, we brought our DSLR cameras and some gear to capture every great moment of this trip. Lots of winds, emptiness, pampas, bustling cities, animals, deserts and waterfalls - all wrapped up in just under 6 min. Enjoy the ride!

Episode 5 Info:
2:07 - Bangkok
We saw this huge abandoned skyscraper all the time and wondered if we can get up there somehow. Security was low to say the least, so we just climbed in and walked up the 50 stories to the top to enjoy an amazing view with a few beers.
3:09 - Khao Lak
The beach at Khao Lak was our escape from all the cultural intesive traveling we did before. It was pretty much empty there and could camp right at the beach to hang out with the crew of the "Memories Bar". Didn't film much here, it was leisure time.
3:15 - Similan Islands
We went on a snorkeling trip for one day. Next to the beautiful islands and the blue ocean water there, the ladyboys guiding the trip were a big highlight.
3:29 - Phuket
After a week in Khao Lak we thought we needed to see a different beach so we drove down to Phuket without knowing what it really was. Let's just say we left the next day and went back to Khao Lak. That's how nice it was.
Argentina: A Skier's Journey EP3 [Season 2] is a road trip through some of Argentina's lesser known ski locations, covering nearly 4000km down the windswept spine of the seemingly endless Andes mountain range. Chad Sayers, joined in part by local skier Maximilliano Artoni, explores desert and pampas, Cohiue and Auracaria, pumice and ash, cardboard and blower, sunshine and wind, granite spire and some bubbling agua termale.
This week marks 1 year living in São Paulo. The following video is just a glimpse of some of the things I have experienced with my camera.
I really struggled on how to portray my year whether it be through random images or categorized sequences. It could have honestly gone 100 different ways but this is how it came out. Rushed to finish it so its not as clean as I would have liked.
São Paulo is an incredibly diverse concrete jungle that basically runs South America financially. It is a very interesting place but I think one has to live here to understand.

This will hopefully be the last video that I shoot with my crap Nikon p100.
Thank you to all the people that I have met so far in Brazil!

The world is fascinating. People and cultures inspire us. Sadly, the fast paced lifestyles of our generation result in many not taking the necessary step back to soak in the existing world around us. Our goal with this film is to help viewers further appreciate and take notice of the beauty in life & culture that lies within our world...
...so the next time you notice something that strikes you as interesting, stop for a second, start powering on your camera, think about why it's unique, and snap the shot before you miss it. Life is extraordinary. Embrace it.
