Great, fun, and exciting news! Last month I was messaged by a footage research company on Vimeo asking if they could use some of my travel footage in a international video campaign for DiscoverAmerica. After some quick back and forth messages and a signed user agreement, it was all set.
The footage is being used in a handful of government funded travel commercials created to promote U.S. tourism. Unfortunately the commercials aren’t going to be running in the states but millions of other people all over the world are going to see them.
If you’ve seen my travel videos you might be able to pick out my shots. Look for the two night time shots of the empire state building in the Making of “Land of Dreams” video, and a timelapse of Trang and I eating some of the best shaved ice in the states in the “land of Dreams – Taste It” commercial But keep your eyes peeled cause the clips are quick!
Here the links to the videos.
We’re at the 8 second mark.
You can see the back of Trang’s head at the 34 second mark.
Pretty quick huh? I don’t know about you guys but I am very excited over being asked to license my footage to help promote the states
