europe: summer adventure no. 2: film

Friday, August 23, 2013



Here is the second (and possibly last, it's almost fall? question mark?) summer adventure film. To be honest, I don't know what this is. I mean, it's Europe. There is a lot of Steele, and reflections, and movement. And water, because, water is the most beautiful moving thing. 

I did have some thoughts, while making this. Mostly about how at the end of a trip, your memories start to condense down into little blips, and you try to put everything back in your head, to stay there, perfect and untouched by time and sadness and regret and real life. To remember all of these moments with the clarity you lived them. But, of course, that's impossible. 

But I made this. And even though there are a million un-filmed moments, a million things that went undocumented, it still somehow represents this trip. In some small way. Or some big way. Or just some way, in the middle, some way at all. 

Now I'm just talking rubbish. I have more things to say about trains, I swear.

  1. I love your videos! They're literally moving versions of your photographic style. (Duh, but I hope you understand what I'm trying to convey.) Just out of curiousity, what program are you using to edit? And are you shooting with your iphone?

  2. Thanks so much :)) And I'm just using imovie! And yes, an iPhone 5 to film. Which apparently has surprisingly good results?
