The Ark

Whatever floats your boat...

I new at some stage I would have to make the CoZzMiX Travels Easter Island video and I new that capturing the essence of Easter Island would not be easy.

After the first week I realized that all the TV documentaries I had watched before coming here had not come close to showing the fusion of landscapes and culture.

After 3 days of editing and re editing my footage, experimenting with various soundtracks and text comments I still didn't like what I saw when I hit preview. Something was still missing.

So with my head in my hands I wandered up to the cliffs to watch the sun set behind the Moai as I did every evening in Rapa Nui (the name the local residents call the Island they love). As I sat there with the sun slowly burning dots onto my retina I heard the Moai whisper to me, "Make it fun" they said. They where of course much older and wiser than me and what they had said was true, what I and all those documentary crews before me had missed was the fact that Rapa Nui is a fun place with lots of opportunity's to see and experience things that you never expected.

When the sun had finally disappeared over the blue, orange and red horizon I came back, deleted my project file and started again.

What you see here took about 1 hour to put together, its not technically perfect and it doesn't show everything there is to see (I figure if you ever come here you will want to discover some things for yourself) but I enjoyed making it and I like the finished result, I hope you like it too...
