Oriental Exposures

The film opens on a foggy dawn viewed from the top of temple IV in Tikal, Guatemala as howler monkeys roust the surrounding jungle.

Filmed on a journey round the world, this video is not about the places I visited, but merely an attempt to evoke the type of wonder and excitement that only travel can bring.

Footage is from stops in Belize, Bolivia, Cambodia, Cook Islands, Chile, China, French Polynesia, Guatemala, Iceland, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mongolia, Nepal, New Zealand, Peru, Russia, Tibet, and The United States.

Music: Montana by Youth Lagoon featured on The Year Of Hibernation out on Fat Possum Records.

All footage shot by me on a Sony NEX-5, and edited by me in FCP 7 in 2012.

Both the journey and the video are made in the most loving memory of my mother who I lost in 2009.
