Daydreams – A Cinematic Roadtrip Adventure Video

It’s been about 8 weeks since I started self isolating after my February visit to Japan. I decided to take the time that’s been thrown in my face to go back to how I started making videos – experimenting, playing in After Effects, and trying different things until something feels right. With so much going on all the time and new opportunities with friends and a whole lot of FOMO, it’s so hard to really push that creative growth button. This video isn’t the coolest thing in the world, but it did take a lot of time and effort, so for that I’m grateful for the opportunity to share some of my work with you! 

Throughout the video I have little tooltips that should hopefully help explain how I filmed some of the shots in the video. Below I explain each of these shots in more detail to give more help and context! Thanks for checking this out and please let me know in the comments below what you thought of the video & the format! As always shoot any questions below.
