So this is not the usual post, this is probably the last post I will be writing from Italy for a while. As I mentioned in other posts and in my last video, I’ll be leaving for Korea for a month’s stay in far east.

I’d call this post my first commissioned video kind of, my wife is a fashion designer and asked me to help her in creating a video for some of the clothes of her collection. So I chose one of the most beautiful locations nearby here (L’Aquila where we live) which happens to be Santo Stefano di Sessanio.

If you’re not familiar with this area of Abruzzo and in particular with Santo Stefano di Sessanio, it’s a small medieval town hidden deep in the National Park of Gran Sasso. All the buildings are built in stone and the atmosphere within the town is absolutely breathtaking. If you happen to be around here, in central Italy, this is a must visit and see location.

Back to the video then. We taped across the town a cinematic sequence, not too long to be honest, just 1:30 minutes long to show a two piece design created by my wife. The main idea of the video is to make the beauty of the clothes and of the scenery stand out as much as possible. I hope I made it to express this in the video.

Anyhow let me know what you think about the video, and don’t forget to subscribe to my channel, if you have any questions feel free to ask!

See you next time! 🙂
