Euro Trippin’ — An Exhilarating Journey Throughout the Continent
At Stunning Locations, we’re at all times striving to create one thing distinctive and authentic. For us, “Euro Trippin'” represents an space of the world that has been shot 1,000,000 occasions, however what excited us about this mission was developing with one thing actually totally different.
We gave ourselves 30 days to get to as many international locations as doable in Europe. The objective was to go to essentially the most iconic areas in every vacation spot and seize a perspective that hadn’t been seen earlier than. We knew we might must be agile and spontaneous, so we challenged ourselves to execute this with a small staff. Tom Jauncey led the cost visiting all 20 international locations in 30 days, Matias De Rada supported by visiting 12 international locations, Sage Stephens joined for six international locations, Jake Irish for 5, and Kay Van Huisseling for one nation. To make issues a little bit extra thrilling, we challenged ourselves to journey with solely carry-on baggage — one bag every for under our tools!
As we deep-dived into the planning for this video, we recognized a enjoyable frequent thread that may showcase every location’s tradition in addition to its iconic modes of transportation — from the gondolas in Venice and the bicycles in Amsterdam to river browsing in Munich. Our story of touring round Europe got here to life by the thread of transportation.
Innovation is on the coronary heart of all the pieces we do at Stunning Locations, and to additional this originality we made the inventive resolution to shoot this mission predominantly on the GoPro Fusion (a 360-degree digital camera). The London introduction sequence is the one footage shot on a conventional DSLR digital camera (the Canon 1DX Mark II). Aside from the aerial photographs, all the pieces else was shot in 360. As a substitute of making a 360 VR expertise, we wished to take a brand new know-how, push it to its limits, and provide you with one thing distinctive and thrilling. Modifying this content material is what actually differentiated the video and what provides it that trippy feeling. The mission was accomplished solely in Adobe After Results, a workflow that was very totally different than what we’re used to doing.
Our imaginative and prescient for this video was to be a optimistic and enjoyable celebration of touring round Europe. We wished to pay homage to British popular culture, referencing inspiration from Colin Firth in “The King’s Speech,” The Each day Prophet within the “Harry Potter” movies, in addition to Man Ritchie’s “Snatch.”
As Stunning Locations pushes into the world of purpose-driven storytelling, we wished to create one thing enjoyable that may have interaction our group whereas additionally relating an necessary trigger — empowering younger individuals to get out and have their voices heard. Whereas on the journey, we stopped in Brussels to satisfy with the European Parliament to talk about applications that encourage right this moment’s youth to specific themselves, rise up for what they consider, and make an influence. In the course of the go to, we realized in regards to the declining numbers of youth participation in necessary world elections, and it was this that impressed us to assist make a distinction and encourage the subsequent technology to vote. By making one thing enjoyable and relatable, we hope we will unfold the optimistic message of getting on the market and expressing your self.
