For those not in the know, Travelistic.com is a recently launched video sharing website dedicated sharing travel clips, films and videos. They’ve been getting some great publicity over the past few weeks, and it’s not hard to see why.
I like the site for a number of reasons:
- the video compression is better than most video sharing sites (like YouTube)
- the site is clean, user-friendly, and quick loading
- it’s run by some pretty cool people
They also started producing “The Map” — a Rocketboom inspired travel vodcast that collects various uploaded content and strings them together in an entertaining show. In this edition, they’ve chosen to feature a clip I shot back in Bangkok with a few friends as we chew on some street-roasted grasshoppers.
The funny part is that we had to shoot the scene twice. My fiance forgot to click the ‘record’ button in the first take, which I figured was the last. (It’s possible the 1 litre Beer Changs had something to do with her mistake).
You may think you’d get used to roasted grasshopper after the first one. But sadly, that’s not the case.
