Travel Collage #1: Tokyo
I experimented with videography heavily in 2017 as I traveled Southeast Asia, visiting countries like Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Vietnam, and Thailand.
In retrospect, it wasn't the most comfortable idea to carry that much video equipment with me on a 6-month journey. On the other hand, all the deadlifts and squats I was doing at the gym finally paid off.
This was the first one I made, soundtracked by a recording of some improvised piano I'd played at home a few weeks before I left.
Travel Collage #2: Tokyo and Beyond
My process with video editing is primarily music-driven. I was inspired to put this one together after I stumbled upon a singer at an open mic in a hipster-laden neighborhood somewhere in Tokyo by the name of Keiko Hiraoka. Super cool sounds.
Audio balance has never been my strong-suit though, so while the music is audible through phone speakers, I'd definitely plug in some headphones if you want the experience I intended :)
Travel Collage #3: Family
This one came together after I spent some time with my cousins in Korea. It was the first of these videos I licensed music for, so I got to play around with drama and explored how the tension could be pulled into moments of comedy.
