South Africa 

The Movie:

 

Video Journal (how it started):

I was on a plane about to touch down in Johannesburg, South Africa when I had a massive surge of inspiration. I was hyper conscious of just how epic my next 4 months were going to be and I wanted to document it properly. Previous on my Spain trip, I had journaled on my phone and as much as I loved reading it afterwards - I hated writing it. This sparked The VOD (Video Of The Day). Because I didn't like writing, I figured I would just film each day.

 

This put a high demand on my time that I realistically wouldn't have, so I decided that I would flip the model of quality verses quantity on it's head. I decided to cut the import and export process out of the equation by filming and editing everything on my iPhone 5.  I didn't care if people like them or not, I was purely making them for my own memory sake and besides, the iPhone 5 does shoot HD.

I started posting these to Instagram to update my family back home and quickly I found that family members of other students at my study abroad semester ending up creating accounts just to be updated. With the massive response I received through comments on Instagram, I started feeling the need to produce better content - you can see this higher production value as the semester went on.

Panoramic photos are pretty epic but no one really shares them.

Next i'll be posting some of my favorite panorama photos from this beautiful country.
