Pure Inspiration on Film: The Road to Free Rider

Posted on January 10th, by Peter Parkorr in North America, Video Adventures. 1 Comment
For anyone in need of a large dose of pure inspiration, here it is. Road to Free Rider is a great video made by Oli Lyon and Nathan Murphy, a couple of young climbers. But almost as interesting as the extreme sport is Oli’s intro to the film.

While I was in Rome at the end of May, I decided to spend the best part of 36 hours straight making a short video showing some of the great food experiences I’d been having in Italy.

Have you ever been to a Scottish celebration of Hogmanay? They really know how to mark an occasion up there. It’s a great way to welcome in the New Year, and here’s my first video from this year’s events to show you why. Five Scottish pipe bands and 26 Up Helly Aa Vikings from the Shetlands lead over 35,000 people and 7,000 torches through the streets of Edinburgh up to Calton Hill in the Hogmanay Torchlight Procession 2012.…

Last week I spotted a few travel video competitions on the Jobs board of Travelllll.com – and its been a pretty hectic week since. On Saturday at 5pm GMT, I got the chance to start reading about the WorldNomads competition properly, and realised it was worth a shot, with the prize being a 10-day filming assignment at Rio Carnival.
