We just got back from our Canada tour, which almost closes out an incredibly busy summer, a season that has included long stretches in Canada, Hawaii, San Francisco and Oregon. This is the video from our time up north. The B.C. wildfires cancelled our original backpacking route through Mt. Assiniboine and pushed us north toward Jasper, but it was still great fun. A lot of smoke, haze, and poutine, but no grizzly run-ins, which I’m always thankful for. This was mostly shot in Banff, Jasper, Canmore and the Icefields Parkway on a GoPro Hero 4 using the Centriphone rig.
This superb video travelogue from filmmaker Vincent Urban is a wonderful example of why Japan is at the top of my list for places to visit next. As the video shows, Japan is such a vibrant country in a diversity of ways. The dichotomy, pitting old traditions against eccentric sub cultures, produces a unique and spirited cultural landscape. One that I hope to visit soon. Plus, I mean, they have the Ghibli Museum and crazy robot shows, so that alone would be worth the trip.
This is the end of the year GoProing With Friends montage I put together every year with my friend Joe. It highlights a lot of the random activities we do throughout the year including sliding down volcanoes, trampoline dodgeball, tomato fights, snow tubing, roller coasters, the World Cup, Super Bowl parades and a little bit of Vegas. Thanks to everyone who contributed, especially Joe’s cousin Alex for cutting most of it. Always fun to do every year.
Although I think my generation records and documents way too much of their lives, I too must confess that I like recording random things I do with a GoPro. These are some of the random things I did this summer along with some good friends. I enjoyed summer thoroughly.
