Per director Rick Mereki:
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.
move, eat, learn
I wanted to make a sausage fest joke, or a joke about how much better looking the one dude must be than the other two, but these short films combining one second cuts from a myriad of cool locations is just making me too Sad Don Draper that I wasn’t there. Here’s “MOVE” “EAT” and “LEARN” after the jump. It’s the new “Eat, Pray, Love!”
Very few things make me envious of what other people are doing (are you pantless and eating peanut butter out of a jar right now? Me neither, but you get the point), but man do these do the trick. Hopefully as they goes viral they will — as the director suggests — compel others to get out their comfort zone and broaden their horizons, even if doing it is not as easy as they make it seem. If you need me I’ll be drinking imports and thumbing through my college Eurotrip photo album. The “EAT” and “LEARN” vids are after the jump.
