  • 27 May 2012

A lot of the films we feature as part of our Video Spotlight are difficult to classify. This week’s entry changes things. It’s a short film that would be equally at home being projected in a gallery as it is shared on a blog or on Tumblr. Canadian photographer and filmmaker Marty Mellway has produced some remarkable footage, filmed during his most recent travels.

  • 29 April 2012

A short but sweet addition to the Video Spotlight archive this week: an imaginative clip that puts a new spin on the time-lapse format that we know and love. Part of a series of three minute-long films commissioned by STA Australia, MOVE condenses several months of travel into a 60 second highlight reel but connects the footage together in an impressive and innovative way.

For far too long, travelling the world has meant relying on costly and unsustainable air travel operators to transport us to our destinations. Now, with the introduction of this new technology our ability to travel freely and easily has taken a huge leap forward. Looking forward, this technology will allow us to visit any destination in the world, without having to stop and worry about our carbon footprint.

Video Spotlight: A Story for Tomorrow

  • Paul Tavner
  • 4 March 2012

The voiceover for this video lends a fairytale quality to the piece. It makes us think of journeys that we’ve undertaken in the past with fondness, but it also inspires the familiar feeling of wanderlust. The thrill of adventure and imagining having our own narrator to catalogue our travels are both appealing prospects.

Video Spotlight: Speeding Around The World in Under 5 Minutes

  • Paul Tavner
  • 8 January 2012

While the film contains its fair share of recognisable landmarks, what we enjoy about it is how the process Lam has used works just as well with unspectacular locations. A crooked bridge over a fast-flowing stream looks just as fantastic as the Eiffel Tower when it’s portrayed in this way.

  • Paul Tavner
  • 20 November 2011

This genuinely amazing video, compiled by filmmaker Michael König using images shot from recent missions on the International Space Station (ISS), reminds us that space, as a wise man once said, is the final frontier. But with our ambition and pioneering instinct, mankind has never been particularly daunted by frontiers. If we’re ever to get anywhere, though, we should never forget where we come from.

  • 6 November 2011

Human Planet, which originally screened in the UK in January 2011, was another worthy contribution to the BBC’s documentary legacy. The eight-part series focused on examining what it refers to as “the most remarkable species of all” – humankind, especially the sheer range of habitats and environments in which we’re able to make ourselves at home.

  • WHL Group
  • 11 September 2011

It’s not an exaggeration to state that 10 years ago today the world changed dramatically for a huge number of people. Aside from the obvious tragedy of the 9/11 attacks in New York City and Washington, DC, the events of that day have had a major impact on the ways that many of us live our lives. We would like to take a moment to think about how 9/11 and the decade since have had an effect on a subject close to our hearts – Travel.
