– Travel Music Footage

Latest update: February 2012

Here are few snippets of the travel video projects i’ve worked on over the years. Now… They are far from professional, even verging on ‘home-video’. The quality varies but i’ve never invested in decent camera equipment or software, nor have i any desire to. Everything has been captured with point-n-shoot digital cameras and is brought together and edited in iMovie. Primitive? Yes, Restricting? Indeed… but it allows me to effectively portray and combine special travel experiences with an personally emotive soundtrack…

Hoi An: This historical port plays the perfect half-way house to the contented traveller… simply wandering the streets and navigating the market is enough to enjoy this cosy, seemingly unspoilt gem. One of my favourite places I’ve visited.

Music: Matchbox Twenty – How Far We’ve Come / Edwin Starr – War
