Eat. Learn. Move: Rick Mereki’s Awesome Short Films

Thank God it’s finally Friday! We can all take a little breather and look forward to the weekend now.

While we’re at it, I’d like to share a super cool series of 3 beautiful and compelling short films with you about one guy’s documentation of what he claims to be the journey of his lifetime – 44 days, 11 countries, 18 flights, 38 thousand miles, an exploding volcano, 2 cameras and almost a terabyte of footage – all in hopes of turning 3 ambitious linear concepts based on Travel, Learning and FoodEat, Pray, Love comes to mind?

Perhaps one day, I too might get the chance to produce such visually stimulating documentaries of my own adventures of eating and traveling. Oh, how one can only dream.


EAT from Rick Mereki on Vimeo.


LEARN from Rick Mereki on Vimeo.


MOVE from Rick Mereki on Vimeo.

So which one is your favourite? Personally, I’m torn between the yummy Eat and seamless Move videos. Too cool for words.

All videos are produced and directed by one multi faceted filmmaker-illustrator-photographer, Rick Mereki. Check out his Tumblr page HERE.
