Top entries – July 2013


South America – in a nutshell

Sarah Isaacs departed for a South American adventure not knowing what to expect, and returned four months, seven countries and 22 000 kilometres later with a personal account of the beauty of our planet and the people who inhabit it. This video will make you want to throw caution to the wind and head out on your ultimate adventure.


Incredible India

India through Andrew Kirkby’s camera is full of colour, vibrance and movement. All the inspiring things you hear about India ring true in this sub-three-minute tour-de-force of clips filmed by Andrew and his girlfriend, who spent a month travelling by railway from Kolkata in West Bengal to Rajasthan. A local priest narrates the video commenting on the culture, spirituality and people that make India such an incredible country.


Body-skiing down an active volcano

On a trip to Chile, Helen Evans filmed her husband Andrew body-skiing down Villarica, an active volcano in Pucon. It takes a gruelling five hours to climb to the summit (at 2800 metres) and see lava and smoke around its rim. For a fun-loving South African couple, this short clip was the perfect way to remember the adventure of a lifetime.


Brazil in time-lapse

Peri van Papendorp, a Cape Town local and avid surfer, runner and all-round extreme sports nut, visited Brazil with his girlfriend. Using just his iPhone, Peri put together a five-minute time-lapse showcasing everything from the thick jungles of the Amazon to bustling Rio de Janeiro, and highlighting what it means to get out there and explore.
