Metroville – Paris

I’ve finally edited my first video together since having the Canon EOS 70D. From my recent trip to Paris with Elly, I have put together a short film documenting the majority of activities we did in a jam-packed 5 days, including a trip to Disneyland.

Metro•Ville – a compound of Metropolitan and (French) City – is the beginning of a collection of videos from some of the world’s greatest cities. Hopefully, I will put together multiple videos in this style and start to build up my videography portfolio whilst also travelling the world a bit more – both of which I have been eager to do for years.

The music is Hey Now by ODESZA, for which I got permission directly from the band’s management. Visit to download their tracks for FREE as they’re awesome.

At some point soon, I will also be finishing up editing a load of the stills from the trip. They will eventually make their way into the Paris section of my portfolio. You can however, see my current photos from Paris.

  2. […] like my Paris video from earlier in 2014, I have used music from ODESZA after I got in contact with their record label for licensing. […]
