This is Japan! by Eric Testroete

23 Jan

I’m travelling to Japan for the first time this year – and this video has me so pumped! Eric Testroete recently went on holiday to Japan with his girlfriend and took some happy snaps on his Pentax K20D. Using Sony’s Vegas software, Testroete stitched his photos together to create this video. The images are crisp, vibrant and saturated in colour. The pulsing effect of the editing combined with the score (LCD Sound System’s ‘All My Friends’) makes you feel as if you are really there. The POV images create a first-person, present-tense narrative that is intoxicating. I can’t wait for Japan!
