Lust for More – A journey through Asia

Lust for More – A journey through Asia

This is a video of my 4 month backpack trip through S/E Asia. We visited Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Malaysia and Singapore. I was completely inexperienced when it comes to film making, I got in to it through the love for photography I’ve been developing over the past few years. I’ve had a lot of fun filming it, going through the footage and finally editing it! Longing already for the next trip.

Song: «Lionheart» by Emancipator
Gear: Canon 650D (18-55 / 50mm 1.8) + GoPro Hero 3 Silver

Vietnam Cycle Challenge

Vietnam Cycle Challenge

Ozge stepped out of her comfort zone to raise funds and awareness for Alzheimer’s Research UK by embarking on a 450km cycle challenge from the North to the South of Vietnam. This is a visual memoir depicting her 10 day journey.

Her fundraising events caught a lot of attention in Milton Keynes – with a short interview aired on ITV News: itv.com/news/anglia/update/2013-08-19/cyclist-to-ride-length-of-vietnam-for-alzheimers-charity/

Her cycle challenge is over, but donations for Alzheimer’s Research UK are still accepted and appreciated 🙂

Backpackers – chapter II: CAMBODIA

Backpackers – chapter II: CAMBODIA

BACKPACKERS:
2 boys. 3 countries. 23 days.

Chapter II: CAMBODIA
We arrived in Phnom Penh by boat through the Mekong River and we spent about 8 days going up the country till Battambang, via Siem Reap.
Cambodia is fantastic and really varied: we moved from completely uncivilized areas to touristic places full of charm, like the archaeological site of Angkor, structures that leave you totally breathless.
This is ‘my’ Cambodia.

Nepal & India: The Experience of Impermanence

Nepal & India: The Experience of Impermanence

2013, Travel Video, HD, 1’34”

We began our trip on 11th March in Kathmandu and ended up on 13rd May 2013 in Thiruvananthapuram. It was an endless exploration, breathtaking culture, once for a lifetime experience and yes; obviously we had lots of fun.

Music: Mumbai by Mike Barresi (Under Non-Commercial License)

Filmed with GoPro Hero 3 and supported with Canon EOS 60D.
Edited in the order it was shot.
Color Grading in Red Giant Magic Bullet.

My Personal Opinion about GoPro Hero 3 (White Edition):
Our Hero 3 was our third member during 63 days of traveling. To be honest, it was not a satisfactory at all and not a good teammate. Firstly, battery life was frustrating. We really regret about not having a backup battery. Avg. time for 1080p settings is 2 hrs., that’s what GoPro tells on its website. But our battery standed for mostly 1 hr. On the other hand, not having a LCD Touch makes it harder to frame what you capture so it was another regret. Next? It gave some SD errors or got frozen for 4-5 times without reason. Unfortunately all of that circumstances caused to miss some best moments of the trip. I highly recommend to have a backup battery if you’re travelling with GoPro and having a LCD Touch as well because while travelling it is almost impossible to repeat the shooting. It works randomly if you wanna something non-fiction!

I still believe that GoPro is perfectly ideal for capturing extreme-sports and self-documentation. But these were what I had experienced as a semi-pro user.

Backpackers – chapter I: VIETNAM

BACKPACKERS:
2 boys. 3 countries. 23 days.

Chapter I: VIETNAM

Here’s the first chapter of our Asian adventure.
We spent six days in vietnam.
Arrived in Ho Chi Minh City we stopped few days then we went down to Can Tho in the Mekong Delta, stopping first at Cu Chi. Last step was Chau Doc, where we boarded for Cambodia.
What impressed me the most of Vietnam were friendliness and smiles and smiles of Vietnamese, as well as beautiful landscapes that leave you speechless. I literally fell in love with this country.

Arte Poética

Arte Poética

A journey into poetry…

Poem & Voice: Jorge Luis Borges
Director / Editor / Colorist : Neels CASTILLON – neelscastillon.com
Cinematography: Kévin Michel
Music: Yann Scott – soundcloud.com/yannscott

Arte poética – Poema de Jorge Luis Borges

Mirar el río hecho de tiempo y agua
y recordar que el tiempo es otro río,
saber que nos perdemos como el río
y que los rostros pasan como el agua.

Sentir que la vigilia es otro sueño
que sueña no soñar y que la muerte
que teme nuestra carne es esa muerte
de cada noche, que se llama sueño.

Ver en el día o en el año un símbolo
de los días del hombre y de sus años,
convertir el ultraje de los años
en una música, un rumor y un símbolo,

ver en la muerte el sueño, en el ocaso
un triste oro, tal es la poesía
que es inmortal y pobre. La poesía
vuelve como la aurora y el ocaso.

A veces en las tardes una cara
nos mira desde el fondo de un espejo;
el arte debe ser como ese espejo
que nos revela nuestra propia cara.

Cuentan que Ulises, harto de prodigios,
lloró de amor al divisar su Itaca
verde y humilde. El arte es esa Itaca
de verde eternidad, no de prodigios.

También es como el río interminable
que pasa y queda y es cristal de un mismo
Heráclito inconstante, que es el mismo
y es otro, como el río interminable.

ENG.
The Art of Poetry

To gaze at a river made of time and water
And remember Time is another river.
To know we stray like a river
and our faces vanish like water.

To feel that waking is another dream
that dreams of not dreaming and that the death
we fear in our bones is the death
that every night we call a dream.

To see in every day and year a symbol
of all the days of man and his years,
and convert the outrage of the years
into music, a sound, and a symbol.

To see in death a dream, in the sunset
a golden sadness–such is poetry,
humble and immortal, poetry,
returning, like dawn and the sunset.

Sometimes in the evening there’s a face
that sees us from the depths of a mirror.
Art must be that sort of mirror,
disclosing to each of us his face.

They say Ulysses, wearied of wonders,
wept with love on seeing Ithaca,
humble and green. Art is that Ithaca,
a green eternity, not wonders.

Art is endless like a river flowing,
passing, yet remaining, a mirror to the same
inconstant Heraclitus, who is the same
and yet another, like the river flowing.

L’art de la poésie.

Contempler le fleuve fait de temps et d’eau
Et se souvenir que le temps est un fleuve aussi,
Savoir que nous nous perdons comme fait le fleuve
Et que les visages passent comme l’eau.

Sentir que la veille est elle aussi un sommeil
Qui rêve de ne point dormir, et que la mort
Que craint notre chair est cette même mort
Qui vient chaque nuit, qu’on appelle sommeil.

Voir dans le jour, dans l’année un symbole
Des jours de l’homme et de ses ans ;
Convertir l’outrage des ans
En une musique, un bruit, un symbole.

Voir le sommeil dans la mort, dans le couchant
Un or triste, telle est la poésie
Qui est immortelle et pauvre. La poésie
Revient comme l’aurore et le couchant.

Parfois, le soir, un visage
Nous regarde du fond d’un miroir :
L’art doit être comme ce miroir
Nous dévoilant notre propre visage.

On raconte qu’Ulysse, rassasié de prodiges,
Pleura d’amour en retrouvant son Ithaque
Verte et humble. L’art est cette Ithaque
Riche d’une verte éternité, non de prodiges.

Il est aussi comme le fleuve sans fin
Qui passe et qui reste, toujours le cristal d’un seul
Inconstant Héraclite, qui est toujours le même
Et autre pourtant, comme un fleuve sans fin.
