  • I'm gonna teach you everything I know about

  • how to make a travel video.

  • You're going to need equipment.

  • Now, first of all, you're going to need a drone,

  • and don't expect just to buy one.

  • GoPros

  • A gimbal

  • Glide cam

  • Microphone

  • Some cameras

  • Gorillapod

  • If you have any money left over,

  • you're gonna need to buy a plane ticket

  • to travel to your destination.

  • You wanna go somewhere aesthetically pleasing

  • where there's a lot going around.

  • Some of the best places are beaches,

  • pools,

  • concerts,

  • abandoned buildings,

  • bridges

  • and cranes.

  • Just keep an eye out for security.

  • Next police, okay?

  • When you're at these locations,

  • you're going to need to get some key shots.

  • Now, it wouldn't be a travel film without these.

  • You have your dangling leg shot,

  • you have the dangling legs out of the helicopter,

  • hyperlapses,

  • slow motion of birds,

  • running into the distance,

  • hands brushing ferns,

  • the high-five.

  • That's just all filler for the main shots.

  • Now your main shots have to be epic.

  • This could include skydiving,

  • parkour,

  • backflips,

  • more backflips,

  • hot girls,

  • more hot girls,

  • and skydiving.

  • Did I say skydiving?

  • Now once you have all of your sick footage,

  • you're gonna need to take it into the editing suite.

  • Don't forget, you'll probably need a couple hard drives.

  • You're gonna have to choose a song.

  • Preferably some tropical house like Kaigo,

  • or you could go upbeat EDM like The Chainsmokers.

  • But not only that.

  • To be a travel filmer,

  • you have to be friends with these guys.

  • Every travel filmer is friends with The Chainsmokers.

  • Everyone except for me.

  • Or for a dramatic effect,

  • you could use cinematic music.

  • Do an inspirational voiceover.

  • Make sure you talk about quitting your 9 to 5 job

  • to pursue your passion.

  • And if you can't think of anything else,

  • just use Alan Watts.

  • "You can listen to all experiences,

  • because all experiences whatsoever are vibrations coming at you."

  • To tie your footage together,

  • there's some key transitions you need to do,

  • like the zoom in effect,

  • object wipe,

  • camera flip,

  • glitches,

  • some dissolves,

  • and make sure to use sound effects.

  • This will really tie it all together,

  • like a big bass swoosh for example.

  • But that's not all.

  • You want to set your video apart from all the others.

  • You're gonna want to get creative with this.

  • This could be replacing the sky with timelapse,

  • or even outer space.

  • And remember that shot I was telling you about,

  • with the feet dangling out of the helicopter?

  • Well, if you don't have a helicopter,

  • just use a green screen and a drone shot.

  • It works just as well,

  • just make sure you put in the sound effects.

  • Don't expect to get much sleep this time.

  • Caffeine is going to be your best friend.

  • And while you're up at night,

  • you can take a Snapchat story,

  • and make sure you put a time stamp

  • to make sure you tell you friends how hard you work.

  • At the end of the video,

  • this is a great spot to put in vlog content.

  • You want to show the viewers what actually happens in real life.

  • We're gonna go to the Abbey Museum, but before we do that,

  • we're gonna walk past this person,

  • which is an exciting experience that everybody should be aware of,

  • cause that's what going on in my life right now.

  • This little piece of wood right here is illuminated

  • by the light coming from the ceiling.

  • That's exciting for all of the viewing audience.

  • Now that your video is done,

  • it's time to share it across all of your social media platforms.

  • If you want to be a good travel filmmaker,

  • you've gotta make sure you're killing it on your social media game.

  • Now when you release it, you could also do a giveaway.

  • For example, if you share this video with #andrewsantosinspired,

  • I'll pick a few random winners,

  • and give you an Instagram shoutout.

  • And make sure you end it with a question

  • so that users can comment below,

  • and tell them to like and subscribe,

  • and how much it really means to you,

  • and how much you appreciate it.

  • No, seriously. I really do appreciate it.

  • My name's Andrew Santos, and I'm a travel filmmaker.

  • Most of the footage you just saw

  • was actually from a 8-month trip

  • with the YouTube channel called "Global Degree."

  • I'm really excited about this project

  • and we're actually going to be putting a ton of episodes out for their season 3.

  • I just thought I'd do this video as a one-off video to poke fun

  • at all of the common trends I've been seeing in travel videos nowadays.

  • And, yeah! Let me know what you think.

I'm gonna teach you everything I know about
