Wow, what a combination of locations for a project – 3 guys, 44 days, 11 countries, 18 flights, 38 thousand miles and almost a terabyte of footage for this project sponsored by STA Australia. They sent these 3 guys on this amazing trip to create the videos as an advertisement for their travel service aimed at ‘students and young travelers.' It appears they used a Canon EOS 5D Mark II (reviews) and a Canon EOS 7D (reviews) for the project.
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.
