Hello Tokyo

Hello Tokyo from Christoph Gelep on Vimeo.

This film was shot over a 5 day trip to Tokyo in January 2016.

It was my first time visiting Japan, a place I had always wanted to see. With a population of 35 million, Tokyo is the largest metropolitan area in the world. Due to this, I soon realised how lively and energetic this city really is.

I decided to take my camera and explore this fascinating city so rich in culture, tradition and innovation.

Tamron 24-70 F/2.8 Di VC

Rising China

Rising China from Drew Geraci (District 7 Media) on Vimeo.

Our first trip to China was an eye opener. The sights, the sounds, the smells, all new to us. We traveled more than 10,000 miles to end up in the remote city of Lanzhou – an industrial mecca surrounded by ancient beauty. The city is a bustling metropolis that caters to more than a 2 million and it was our goal to showcase it like never before… from above.

Utilizing drone technology, we traveled hours outside of the city to capture remote villages, climbed the highest mountain range to reveal the massive size of the city and toured sacred temples that had never been filmed like this before. Our 20 day trip wasn't without challenges. It rained more than 60% of the time, which made operating our drone a difficult task. We managed to move around the weather to capture as much footage as we could before the journey ended and managed to capture some incredible sights in the process.

The people of China were incredibly floored to see this type of technology being used in their city. It was odd enough to see 2 white guys from the states in a city that rarely has foreign tourists but to see a quad copter flying above the city and historical sites really drew their attention. Their hospitality and kindness made for a very fulfilling trip.

We will return to China with out a doubt.

Upon returning to the states we discovered the incredible talent of the Indian Jam Project, a music group from India, which covers movies themes/scores and replays them with a delightful twist. Their latest creation, which covers Han Zimmer's, "First Step" and "Stay", captivated us and really conveyed a sense of peace and wonderment. The adaptations are arranged and composed by Tushar Lall.
