Just did an 8 day tour around Jordan and made this short (19 minute) film HERE
- it covers Amman, Petra, Wadi Rum, the Dead Sea, and the desert castles of the north and east. I'm particularly pleased with the opening sound track, which uses the call to prayer (that I recorded while sitting in a park), blended with a song called "Scorpion Desert" - I think it works really well. Anyway, see what you think. Best watched on a proper TV with a good sound system, rather than fiddly little phone screen.
I liked your film, URL, you certainly have a knack to convey atmosphere.
Whenever I see pictures of ancient depictions of animals, be it in mosaics or cave wall paintings, I think to myself how true to life they are. How precisely did the ancient artists capture the essence of the creatures they have immortalized.
So much so, that in your film of the ancient mosaics, I actually felt for the wild beasts, facing the hunters coming at them with long spears and hunting dogs. Very realistic. (noted they were all right handed).
You also managed to convey the grandeur and massiveness of Petra. People look so tiny next to those towering ancient temples and red rock formations.
And then there is the marketplace, multi colored and noisy; I paused at the dryfruit and nuts stall: ahhh dates!
I think I could spy with my little eye Medjool and Deglet Noor dates. (I bet you couldn't possibly guess I like dates?
And finally, just to remind us that where there are people there would be rubbish....we see litter strewn about, next to some big rubbish bins, and you ask "....why are these bins there?!" Indeed! Why?
So thank you for posting your travel film, URL, the sound tracks work well, you do have The Knack.
