Lessons from the 5 most popular Burning Man videos.

IT’S THAT TIME OF YEAR, when all anybody can talk about ( and I think about ) is Burning Man. By now you have started packing, you either have a camp by now or you are planning on winging it, and if you are like me you are still looking for a ride.

If you are like these video ninjas, you are packing your camera and plan on coming home to edit your masterpiece.

For a kick ass Burning Man video that everyone will love you will need;

  • A hard-thumping techno/ambient soundtrack.
  • Timelapse footage of burners swirling about like insects and other captivating shots.
  • Plenty of fire.

These burners don’t need any tips, they wrote the book. I present are the 5 most ‘liked’ Burning Man videos on Vimeo. If this doesn’t get you stoked for the Black Rock City then you need to check your pulse.
