Travel video for YouTube | Dubaï

This is a long due video. My trip to Dubaï finally got his own video. I wasn’t very inspired by it, the city is so artificial and nothing really interested me to be honest, no story. So why I went there you may ask? Well, there was several reasons to it but I’m not going to comment on that. Let’s say that I had a very cheap air fare to go. It wasn’t very long, just 2 nights and back to Switzerland. I made this video which is very contemplative and on a point of view mode.

Directed, filmed, edited & sound mixing by Alejandro Pérez
Material: Canon EOS 5D Mark II, Adobe Permiere Pro, Adobe After Effects, Adobe Audition.

No comments, just the images and the sound. The sound turned out to be very bad in some sections due to my poor knowledge of the new ambient mic I bought, so for these parts of the video I just put on some music. It’s the first time I upload such a long video, but I added chapters so it is more digest for everybody including me. My favorite part was Deira, because it’s older and it is more authentic than the rest of the city which is too new. I did not go to the desert unfortunately because I was on a budget and but I think the video is still interesting to watch. But my very fav part took place when I went to the Dubai Mall where the flight simulators are (which I didn’t try btw) and a kid was trying to make the simulator work when somebody from the shop showed to him two snapped fingers and just one word repeated four times: “Money money, money money”*.. that what Dubaï is all about in the end.
