Short of the Week

Eat. Learn. Move.

3 friends create three indelible short travel films, each centering around a specific topic.

The super hot thing on Vimeo right now. Three simple, minute-long pieces, each revolving around a theme, and all three compiled from video taken on an epic trip. You know, the kind of transnational odyssey you and your college buddies always talk about embarking on but barely even get started planning. Rick Mereki, Tim White and Andrew Lees, unlike you, went all the way and came up with these wonderful short travel films that distill all the pleasure of a season of Rick Steves episodes into internet-sized super-doses. The films stimulate our natural curiosity and wanderlust, but also happen to be nice to look at, employing trendy videography tricks like splitscreen symmetry.

3 guys, 44 days, 11 countries, 18 flights, 38 thousand miles, an exploding volcano, 2 cameras and almost a terabyte of footage… all to turn 3 ambitious linear concepts based on movement, learning and food ….into 3 beautiful and hopefully compelling short films…..

= a trip of a lifetime.
