Checking In From Cuba

Location: Cuba

Just wanted to send a quick hello following my incredible trip to Cuba, and share a little video that I put together of this beautiful country. Video has always been an interest of mine, but I’ve just never seemed to have the time commitment that it takes to both film + edit video, but I really made a conscious effort during my trip to capture both photos and video. Needless to say it wasn’t easy (you can only do one thing at once, right?), but I was so inspired by this magnificent country that I actually found it easy. The hard part of course was teaching myself a crash course in Final Cut Pro and being a perfectionist to the degree where I went through multiple rounds of edits, recuts, etc.

I really wanted to capture the essence of Cuba through some of the clips that I edited together; there is an undeniable energy to this island and I would go back in a heartbeat. As I walked the streets I had the song that I used in my final video in my head, I think the song captures the vibe and heartbeat of Cuba perfectly.

Of course I’m going to be sharing a full blog post with loads of photos and a recap of my trip soon, but for now I wanted to share my video with you all. I hope you enjoy! In the meantime, check out some of the posts I’ve already done on my Instagram feed and check out Kirsten Alana’s wonderful images too!
