departures 1

I love watching Departures at Nat Geo Adventure channel for a lot of reasons.

  1. I love traveling and watching people go around the world makes me feel like I am, too
  2. Justin is hilarious, funny and really a keen observer.  He is adventurous, too.
  3. Scott is cute and smart but I still like Justin more.
  4. It is a nice show and the two guys has there talent in capturing moments.

The list can go on and on and on, it is endless.  Unfortunately, the show’s air time was moved on a Thursday thus, I don’t get to watch the whole episode but still I get to see the show isn’t bad at all rather than not seeing it at all.

Since I have posted about the show, the respective post’s have an average of 4 views a day.  So I guess this is a nice way of advertising and promoting the show as well.

It is believed that they are already filming the third season and I can’t just wait to see it.  For more information, please follow on this link to know about the show and the cast, too.  I bet you a dollar on this, the show is worth watching.

Also attached is a link of one of the deleted scenes from the show.

This is another Nat Geo Adventure show that I truly enjoy, Departures is an adventure travel television series.  I have made myself clear that traveling is one of my passions.

It features best friends Scott Wilson and Justin Lukach, from Brantford, Ontario. The goal being to expand their perspective on life while challenging each others as well as their own limits. Wilson and Lukach travel to various exotic and interesting destinations throughout the world. The style of the show is similar to a road trip. They are accompanied by Andre Dupuis, their friend and camera operator.  The show is taking place over a one year hiatus during which time they suspend their lives for the year.  Wilson’s idea was that he wanted to do the show while it was still possible as the opportunity may not be there as their futures unfold. Wilson and Lukach both commit to a year away from home regardless of how challenging, for the life experiences they may otherwise miss. (Source: wikipedia)

The show is really entertaining; I like how Justin describes each observation and his personality.  He’s funny and bubbly.  This show is worth watching and I’m glad that it has two seasons already and I hope they’d make another season of which I’m sure is something that worth looking forward to.  For more information, you may visit their official website here.  I also took the liberty of attaching a youtube link of one of the deleted scenes from the show.  To show how funny Justin is…

This is my second post about Brook Silva-Braga’s work. I may say, I was really impressed with his work and I am craving for more. After watching “A Map for Saturday” last week end, I immediately “googled” him and looked for his back ground and other works. Fortunately, I discovered that his first work has a website. (Click here to go to the link) And during the actual travel he also kept a blog which I really find very interesting. (Again click here to for the link)

 

And what I am really excited about is his 2nd feature documentary about “One day in Africa”.  He went out to Africa first part of 2008 and edited the film in the remainder of the year. It will begin running in film festival by spring of this year. To know more about his latest work, I conveniently leaving a link to his work. (Click here)

The schedules of the film will be announced in his website. I can’t wait to see it hit the tube because going to the festival is very improbable to happen. But if time and chances permits me to do so I wouldn’t miss it for the world.

 

Hope you enjoy the links as much as I did!
