I have always been attracted to the Baltic countries. When it comes to people talking about travelling in Europe, the Baltic countries are often forgotten and left out from most conversations due to the lack of tourism and tourist facilities you would come to expect in places like Paris or Amsterdam, and that is why I decided to travel there.
Its fairy-tale-like forests, medieval castles, and charming cities provide me with a more authentic look at the forgotten part of Eastern Europe, a part that has been through so much, being lodged in between great powers, subjugated and fought for their independence, and yet they were able to preserve so much of their identities. I spent more than a week travelling to Vilnius, Trakai, Riga, Cesis, Tartu, and Tallinn in early 2018 and the things I've seen, can not be expressed with words, so here is a travel video I made for my trip in the Baltic countries.
For this "Go with the Baltic Flow" travel video, I have decided to go for a more "flowy" feel to it by stitching up the footages in a way that flows smoothly using subject movement, camera movement and camera techniques, hence the name. I wanted the visual to flow together with the unique intense, uplifting, and serious electronic/cinematic music that hopefully will ignite your curiosity and inspire you to visit these wonderful countries and see for yourself what it is really like.
I hope you enjoy this video as much as I do making them!
