Filmmaker Shows Off the Grandeur of Southeast Asia

Normally a journey this enchanting would mandate a plane ticket and a few weeks of your time.

Thankfully, Paul Wex (h/t Digg) shaves the traveling demands considerably with over six minutes of gorgeous images floating ever so gracefully across the computer screen.

The filmmaker’s work is called “Interrupt” and it’s “An audiovisual neurotic slow-motion experience of random daily life in Southeast Asia.”

It’s kind of like seeing someone’s home movie of their holiday, only with far more emotive storytelling within the editing:

Wex continues via Vimeo: “Take your time, lean back and use big speakers or headphones. Enjoy and feel what I saw on my last trip.”

That trip, according to the video, saw Wex take on The Philippines, which included stops in Cebu and Bohol, and visits to Hong Kong and Singapore.

Somehow Wex managed to capture more than just pictures and various sounds along the way.

In splicing together pristine video with peaceful music and calming motion Wex delivers an ounce of the ambiance garnered from an adventure through the region.

At least, that’s the feeling we get watching this brilliant display. It’s more than enough to get our travel juices flowing so that we may one day see waters so still they seem to be painted on the horizon and culture so vibrant it touches our soul thousands of miles away.

We sincerely thank Wex for this interruption.
