i go to mexico city pretty often but never take the time to film anything. this time i tried…. i should’ve tried harder, but this is what came out of it.
and this is the Guatemala portion. a little longer but worth the watch.
during may and june of 2013 i went to belize and guatemala… this is the belize portion.
when i saw the trailer for “her” i thought this song was more than decent. finally i can listen to the entire song from start to end. this is so i don’t forget it.
this movie’s look is amazing. always has those moody red lights with hints of blues here and there. also goes to prove that anything shot in bangkok is an instant cinematic success. if someone reading this and knows of a bad movie shot in bangkok, please do tell, and don’t say “the hangover 2,” even that was badass. yes, the shots are long. yes, it’s violent. yes, probably what starts the entire conflict goes unanswered… but i rather see these long shots than another hand fed action packed michael bay movie. plus, the shots are truly amazing. they obviously have a kubrick touch… larry smith, the dp of the movie, did some camera work for “eyes wide shot.” the hallway shots is what gives smith away. great movie. if iron man is your cup of tea, definitely skip this one and pick up a book or enroll to college courses because your brain needs major intellectual stimulation. or just grab your bud lite and enjoy monday night football. nothing wrong with that just don’t become like any of the characters in this movie.
Here’s a preview of what you won’t be seeing on the short video I just finished editing from my trip to Belize. I say you won’t be seeing because I didn’t take any good video underwater. For some reason I took great photos, like this one, but all video is worthless. If you ever want to shoot underwater make sure you don’t attach the camera to your wrist. It’s impossible to shoot and obviously a big waste. Once all the final details are done with the video I will most likely post it here and move on with the video from the second part of the trip…
When I was about 7 years old my parents took me through this road. We had taken a bus from somewhere I cant remember now. What does stick out a lot is how my mom would make a big deal on how dangerous it was. Sure enough I remember how during the drive then there were cars on the cliffs from drivers who I guess didn’t measure the curves correctly. When I found out that now I was going to be driving through that very same road I was a little worried. But then I made some research and saw how Mexico has made a strong effort in building better highways. There is even a lot of stopping points where you can take photos or simply enjoy the great view. All grown up and now me driving my parents this is the photo I took while I was there
