‘This is the Philippines’

A video by Grégoire Thiébault via YouTube

“This video is a patchwork of shots I have taken in the Philippines from January to April 2011. I went there to study as an exchange student in Manilla. My stay there allows me to travel in many places like Bohol, Batad, Baguio, Batad, Angeles, the Pinatubo Volcano, Batangas, Cebu and more…

I used a Canon 550d with an old lens Takumar 50mm 1.4 and the canon 18-55mm. First time I’m shooting a movie, which isn’t as easy as I thought but I tested many things and finally learned a lot!

So the result is far to be technically perfect but I have done what I could :D

I’ll miss the Philippines, the curiosity of their inhabitants, the beauty of the landscapes and my crazy life there.

If you want to see more, here is my flickr account where I put some pictures of the Philippines and other countries of Asia I went during my trip : http://www.flickr.com/photos/bazart/

The music is from the Temper Tramps / Sweet disposition

Hope you’ll enjoy it”
