Every week I try to scour the interwebs for exciting, inspiring, thought provoking, jaw dropping, hilarious, cool, neat, wicked, pretty videos to share with you on Favorite Film Friday. This week I have three videos to share. They have only been online for about 10 days at the time of me writing this post and they already of a combined number of views being 6.4million. In ten days!

The description for the videos pretty much explains it all “3 guys, 44 days, 11 countries, 18 flights, 38 thousand miles, an exploding volcano, 2 cameras and almost a terabyte of footage… all to turn 3 ambitious linear concepts based on movement, learning and food ….into 3 beautiful and hopefully compelling short films…..= a trip of a lifetime.”

The three films are called “Move”, “Learn” and “Eat” and they were actually commissioned by STA Travel Australia and here is what they had to say about the project “STA Travel Australia sent 3 of our mates, Rick Mereki, Andrew Lees and Tim White on an amazing journey around the world. See a six-week journey of a lifetime crammed into one epic minute.”

Epic is right. “Move” is probably the best of all three videos and viewers seem to think that too with it having 4million views compared to each of the others only having 1.2million. The quality of video, the color and skill of the DOP is amazing. I can’t even begin to wrap my head around how they were able to create these videos.
