Russia

Russia
3 Comments / 7 months ago

Russia was the last trip I did in 2017. I spent three weeks traveling from city to city in the rainy and gloomy weather of Russia. As you know, by the November, Russia is approaching winter and the weather can be quite unpredictable as it was for me. Instead of dwelling on bad weather, I decided to go out and capture the cities of Russia as it is while taking advantage of the approaching winter and went up to the Arctic Circle to witness the northern lights. It was probably one of the cheapest places in the world to do so.

After Murmansk, I went down and spent a week each in St Petersburg and Moscow to capture the "Life Out of Balance" of Russian cities. Yes, you are not mistaken. This video was fully inspired by the great documentary, Koyaanisqatsi, Life Out of Balance directed by Godfrey Reggio and the music composed by Philip Glass.

Funny enough I actually took all these footages before I even watched the documentary. I'm quite surprised that I was able to accommodate the concept into my travel videos from unplanned footages. :)

I hope you enjoy the film and watch out for my next travel video!

This was awesome. Is the music from Koyanisqatsi [sic]? The closing song sounds like it might be from the Interstellar score. Again, awesome!

Haha yes, both songs are from Koyaanisqatsi. What an amazing documentary. I was so inspired by it I decided to make the RUSSIA video as a tribute. :) Glad you like it! Thank you for watching and the comments!
