Beyond all words and photographs, experiencing the world through cinema is unique among other mediums. Travel videos hold the power to swell us with emotion and a deeper understanding of what a destination holds for the heart of a traveler. We have been moved by the expertise and creativity of Passion Passport’s travel videographers that live a travel life fully and artistically. Now, we want to hear from the rest of the community about their experiences with travel videography and creations with film.
This week, the Passion Passport community will celebrate the art of travel videos and discuss cinematography techniques, admired filmmakers, and everything in between. We want to inspire you to engage in sharing what you think makes a travel video influential, beautiful, and though-provoking. Join us this Thursday, October 6th at 2pm ET to chat with Passion Passport and its community on travel videos!
Co-hosts: Daniel Broadley (@danielbroadley) is director based in Bristol/London that creates cinematic travel videos with strong narratives.
