[VIDEO] Catching the Kobe Sunrise

Beautiful Yukata girl

I slept at 8 something last night after location hunting for my film (more on that later), and woke up at 12 in the midnight. Haven't slept since then, was editing the second (and concluding) video of my new year trip at the Kansai Region. After I've uploaded part 1 (you MUST watch it!) a few days ago, I had some problems figuring out how to edit this video.



I originally wanted to continue the whimsical, MTV-ish tone from the previous video, but as I looked through the footage again, I realized I had to go for something stylistically different as the second (and last) day of my trip was more somber and spiritual, as compared to fun-filled visits in Kyoto and Nara.

Therefore I decided to minimize the use of background music, sticking mostly with the ambient so that you guys can have this 'you are there' feeling when watching my video. There's a piece of music that will pop out towards the end of the video, composed by Nico Spahni, also downloaded from Jamendo. (One of his other compositions was also used for the soundtrack of my short film, LOVE SUICIDES)

This video is decidedly more mundane, focusing only one what I did during the first day of 2009, and my attempts to see the second sunrise of the year at the beautiful harbour of Kobe. During my wait, I also visited the Minagawa Shrine located near the Kobe station. Once again, photo of random beautiful woman in Yukata is by Saladfreak.

And again, I'm embedding both the Youtube video and the Facebook one. See whichever loads faster for you.

Enjoy the video!


I embedded the high quality version of the video, if it takes too long to load, go for the normal quality instead
