This little video by Thinklab was inspired by a TED talk given by Stefan Sagmeister. The Thinklab crew packed up a Canon 5D and travelled through South America, Europe, and New Zealand. The video is all captured from their trip. If this doesn’t make you want to push away from the machine for a while I don’t know what will.
I stumbled across this video this morning via Booooooom (which is a absolutely fantastic blog by the way) and was really impressed, not just by the video itself but by the music as well. The video was directed by Seattle-based Matt Daniels (Thinklab) and is for musician Damien Jurado’s song, Caskets. The cinematography is top notch and it’s just a really beautifully shot video.
