      A road trip straight through Israel. Had no idea what the complexities and diversity of the cultures were, but I got deeper and deeper, seeing all walks of life living together in this amazing land. The conglomerate of things happening in that tiny, but EPIC country (it's smaller than New Jersey!) packed a punch like a bustling beehive. I was overwhelmed and totally let Israel envelope me. I bonded with every flavor of person there... they were all Israeli. They were all beautiful people. (By the way, the title isn't spelled wrong, lol...read it again ;) Shot with the 7D and edited with Sony Vegas I edited this video with a fever, kidney infection, and $4 headphones! LOL. Music by the amazing John Adams (Harmonielehre_ Part III - Meister) http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000TH4VOK/ref=dm_mu_dp_trk3 Featured in The Atlantic Magazine SPECIAL THANKS: -GONCALO DE ALMEIDA COSTA for touring me to the best places and meeting the best guides and locals! -KEITH RIVERS for letting me borrow his camera for the trip! -NATHAN MILLER for stocking me up on batteries and cards!

          Morocco is a country that awakens in the photographer a desire for adventure. From the green mountains of the northern Rif to the arid and warm desert of Erg Chebbi, Morocco offers endless opportunities to get those fantastic images that we have always dreamed of. This trip to Morocco was certainly one of the most rewarding and enriching I have done so far, both for traveling alone and for the magnificent results that I have achieved. I have to say that I was very lucky with the weather and the people who kindly helped me throughout my stay. And it was also very important the formidable equipment I have used: DSLR Sony A99 and Sony FS700, lent by Sony Spain, and Xlidercam-M, lent by kietacam.com. Therefore I would like to express my deepest gratitude to Javier Agueda, Jose Hernandez and Belen Arronte. www.enriquepacheco.com twitter.com/EnriquePacheco_ facebook.com/eppacheco http://instagram.com/enrique_pacheco_photo If you want to license this footage, it´s available in super sharp 4k at my store: http://store.enriquepacheco.com Or you can contact the media department: media@enriquepacheco.com Please only professional enquires, high quality footage is not for free.

            In September 2014, we traveled to Lebanon to capture what life is like for Syrian refugees living in the Bekaa Valley. We were hosted by the humanitarian organisation MEDAIR who has been helping newly arriving refugees primarily with establishing safe shelters since 2012. Check out to see what they are doing at: www.medair.org This film is a collections of sights and sounds from our experience in the informal settlements of the Bekaa Valley where more than 130.000 Syrian refugees are seeking safety. The government has been hesitant to allow formal refugee camps, so these families are living in makeshift shelters on rented farmland from Lebanese farmers with little to no amenities such as water and sanitation. The Bekaa Valley is situated just an hour drive West to the capitol, Beirut, and just a few kilometers away from Damascus, the Syrian capitol. We also shot some surrounding landscapes and life in Beirut to to show the visual and cultural context of the situation in Lebanon. Directed & Edited by: Vincent Urban Camera: Vincent Urban & Stefan Templer Shot with Canon 5D Mark III Music: Ben Lukas Boysen - "Gravity" www.adnoiseam.net If you're interested here's some description of the work featured in the film: 0:55 - Medair is working in informal tented settlements in the Bekaa Valley, plots of private farmland that refugees rent from Lebanese landowners. Medair distributes durable shelter materials to help refugee families reinforce flimsy tents and protect these tents from harsh weather conditions. 1:27 -Doctors, nurses, and technicians are paid and trained by Medair to reinforce these clinics so both vulnerable Lebanese and Syrian Refugees can access affordable health care. Community members are also trained on important nutrition and breastfeeding practices and screened for malnutrition. 1:43 - Medair conducts site improvements to mitigate flooding and improve sanitation, drainage, and hygiene in informal settlements. Small engineering works- digging ditches, laying gravel and pipes and building “soakaways” to manage kitchen and waste water, are tailored as necessary for each site.

              About nine years ago I had the privilege of going to a Muslim nation for the first time. Before I went, I didn't know what to expect. I remember being very fearful because of my lack of knowledge and experience with Muslims and their culture. I grew up in a town that didn’t have any Muslims and the only exposure that I had received was from television. In my mind, Muslims were people who hated Americans and wanted to kill us because we weren’t Muslim. Looking back on it I laugh because of my naivety, but at that time these thoughts really scared me. I’m so glad that I was able to overcome my fears because once I was there my thinking drastically changed. I found that the Muslim people that I got to know were some of the most hospitable and kind people that I had ever met. I have been to many Muslims countries now and have developed friendships with many there. They have opened my eyes to the stereotypes that I had once bought into. This video is my effort to try and help people think about this issue. I think we as Americans can get worked up about a group of people that often we know little about. Here are some questions for you: How many of you are afraid of Muslims? How many of you have ever met a Muslim? How many of you have had a Muslim friend? I think we fear because we're scared of the unknown. Have we made an effort to understand? I would love to see Americans start dialoging with Muslims both here and abroad. My Muslim friends in the Middle East and North Africa made me promise that I would tell my American friends that they aren't terrorists. I hope you enjoy this video that I made. Please leave comments if you like. You could even use this comment section below to start talking to each other. (Please be nice and respectful) Tech Talk: This video was shot using a Canon 5d Mark II. I used all L series glass. We used a glide-cam 4000 pro for the moving shots. A zoom H4n hand recorder was used for audio and Plural Eyes was used in Final Cut Pro to sync the audio.
