It’s a precious thing to be able to capture a travel moment in time. One look at an image, and we can remember a thrilling trip all over again. How much more thrilling might it be, then, to be able to see it happening again — or in real time?
Video has moved beyond baby’s first steps and graduation to the wide world beyond, becoming a favored medium through which to thread our travel experiences. And with real-time streaming tools like Periscope and Meerkat, that experience is constantly gaining more immediacy. This week, we want to zoom in (pun intended) on videography, and its evolution in relation to travel.
Tune in this Thursday, 7/9 at 2pm EST to talk about what goes on behind the record button. Bring your best footage and recommendations for the video community. We’re joined by co-hosts who are bringing video and travel closer together:
Rachel Rudwall (@rachelroams): Videographer, host of Vacation Chasers
Marko & Alex Ayling (@vagabrothers): backpackers, videographers (Vagabrothers YT channel)
Martin Reisch (@safesolvent): photographer & videographer at Safe Solvent
