1. It has been several years since an earthquake devasted Irpinia, South Italy. Although a massive reconstruction, some places, here and there, like dead memories or museums in the open air, can still remind everybody of such a tragedy. The long-standing, quiet, spooky ruins seem to claim their own right to survive, warning strangers not to pass. But a funny guy with a briefcase and a clue, turns up, unexpected...
    ______________________

    Sono passati molti anni da quando il sisma del 1980 devastò l'Irpinia. In seguito la ricostruzione ne ha modificato profondamente la topografia, lasciando che le rovine testimoniassero la tragedia come dei musei a cielo aperto. Camminando tra queste pietre, immerse da tempo in un silenzio ottuso, si prova l’imbarazzante sensazione di essere osservati. Pietre che sembrano reclamare una propria anima, e che ora paiono inorridire per una visita inattesa…

  2. Orford Ness is a wild and remote shingle spit off the Suffolk Coast in England owned by the National Trust. It is a massive expanse thought to contain 15% of the world's reserve of coastal vegetated shingle and it is truly unique place.

    From 1913 Orford Ness was used as a military test site and closely guarded to prevent public access. Top secret experiments were conducted across both World Wars and into the nuclear age. The result is a landscape littered with the scars and debris from such tests. Unexploded ordinance was so rife that the RAF Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) were stationed on the Ness for 17 years disposing of whatever they could find.

    Also left behind are a bizarre collection of foreboding buildings providing a clue to a sometimes disturbing past yet some animals seem oblivious to them and their significance. Perhaps the most iconic buildings are the 'Pagodas', which feature heavily in the film. These buildings, aptly named, were Laboratories 4 and 5 of the Atomic Weapons Research Establishment (AWRE) site.

    The Ness is now an internationally important nature reserve, harbouring an amazing array of wildlife. A small crew of three stayed on the Ness for 5 days and produced this short film for the BBC Natural History Unit about the place and the wildlife found there. The film concentrates on the oddities of design; the design of the place and the design of the wildlife found to reside there.

  5. Peguera és un petit poble abandonat de l'alt Berguedà, ara un projecte urbanístic amenaça la continuitat del paratge tal i com el coneixem avui en dia. Em pregunto si aquest vídeo és el testimoni de la meva darrera passejada per la Peguera actual.
    Voldria agraïr molt especialment a en Josep Oriola, Joan Perarnau i Xavier Pedrals la seva col·laboració.
    Res més, espero que us agradi aquest petit poema visual. Gràcies, Guillem.

    Peguera is a small abandoned village of High Berguedà (Catalonia), now an urbanistic project threatens the continuity of the landscape as we know it today. I wonder if this video is the last testimony of my last walk through the current Peguera.
    Filmed with sony nex vg20.
    I would like to especially thank Josep Oriola, Joan perarnau and Xavier Pedrals their collaboration.
    Nothing, I hope you enjoy this little visual poem. Thank you, Guillem.

Abandoned, deserted and derelict places are extremely fascinating. Many of us cannot say exactly why, but often we find ourselves staring at an abandoned church or cemetery, a dismissed factory or a ghost town. It does not matter where it is, as long as it is abandoned; most of times it does not even matter what it was. It is just the fact that place lived once, and now it bears just some sad and melancholic signs of that previous existence.

This channel is for all the people that feel compelled to film abandoned places around the world, and for those who enjoy watching films about them. Have a good exploration!
