Around the world in 80 seconds

To be honest, when I heard about these videos I didn’t think it would interest me. An apparently inspirational figure repeating a  tired formula whilst highlighting many of the worlds wonders I may never see. Great.

ALAS! Yet again, much like the first time I watched Where The Hell is Matt, I was enraptured, inspired and left with an irremovable smile upon face.

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…..
