Filmmaker Jacco Kliesch takes us through Sri Lanka with a stunning video diary of this island nation. Shot using a GoPro HERO4 and a Sony a7S II, the cinematic journey begins with a plane’s descent into Sri Lanka and a rain-filled stormy night. But the rain and darkness quickly gives way to a beautiful sunrise on the beach, and as morning light began pushing through the clouds, the country of Sri Lanka came to life.
Through the use of well-produced sound design, Jacco takes viewers on an immersive trip through Sri Lanka’s forests, mountains, temples, rural backroads, and marketplaces. The film also reveals the vibrance of life in the region – colorful insects, playful monkeys, and charming local Sri Lankans all make appearances in the video. All in all, the short film is a masterfully composed visual narrative that boasts all the marvels of the country.
