There’s no doubt that traveling the world can be one of the single greatest experiences of one’s life. Director Rick Meriki, along with his two buddies, has created 3 short videos that capture some of the greatest parts about traveling. Each movie is entitled “move”, “eat”, and “learn” and motivates the viewer to get up off their couch and join in the adventure.
The three short films are each about one minute long. They were commissioned by STA Travel Australia and span 11 countries in just 44 days. The videos are fast paced so viewers must watch them a few times in order to truly appreciate the beautiful environments and see the cultures, locations, and images of each country.
The fast-paced movements of one man’s journey through the world, and the simplistic piano music set in the background is reminiscent of the groundbreaking video “where the hell is Matt?” released in 2008. “Where the hell is Matt?” gained 41 million views after going viral on YouTube. The “move”, “eat”, “learn” videos are not gaining as much steam as the former but I hope more and more will be inspired by these short films and start to think about the own adventures they could create through travel.
These videos really get their viewers excited to explore the cultures, tastes, and traditions from around the world. I’ve posted a link to all three “move”, “eat”, and “learn” videos below. The films are exhilarating and moving. Also, watch out, the clips from “eat” will make you hungry.
