GRINGO - Tales of an Englishman

English traveler shares his views on language and traveling.
This film was made to Silva Home Movies:
4k cinematic travel Short Film of the enchanting land of Iceland, shot with iPhone 7 Plus and DJI Osmo mobile, Mavic Pro drone and Panasonic G85.

Hundreds of craters, thousands of waterfalls. Glaciers, volcanos and black sand beaches.
This wild land gave me teary eyes and goose bumps.

I am lucky to explore new places and to share this experience with my patient and beautiful wife Michelle, which helped me to film this video.
She is, of course, the elegant enchanted muse in the Red Dress.

Iceland is a reminder to all of us, of how beautiful and powerful Nature can be, but at the same time, of how delicate it is.
It is our responsibility to protect and conserve Nature.

I hope these images will inspire you to travel, to explore and to respect our planet.

The Blind Spot (short film/2005/HD)

Though it certainly feels a bit dated now, in its run 'The Blind Spot' was selected in around 150 film festivals and won 16 awards.

Back in 2005 it was very expensive for an indie filmmaker to rent an HD camera, so we used the footage of two Panasonic DVX100 cameras (even rigged together in a big chunk of the piece) to conform a semiHD (1300*576) final image.

I've recovered the master we used for the 35mm transfer to put onlinr the best possible version.
