I’ve never done this before!
I just got back from the movies, better said – a travel show. It was so good; I just had to sit right down, turn on my computer and share this with you.
I can honestly say there is nothing on TV that can compare to private travel slide shows, films and/or documentaries shown in theaters, libraries, cramped backstage rooms, and dusty attics. Not only are the films presented from the movie makers personally, but the producers moderate – live – in front of enthusiastic applauding audiences.
Tonight I drove about 40 kilometers in order to see a film on the Canary Islands. Although I have already visited three of the islands: Tenerife, Grand Canary, and Fuerteventura, I’m aware that I have just touched the tip of the iceberg… or better said the top of the volcanoes. This particular documentary interested me since it is a compact review of all seven of the Canary Islands: their people, the breathtaking beauty, and the unique differences each island presents.
The architect, Andre’ Schumacher, is not only a film maker, but a photographer, who can hold his own in the National Geographic league. His combination of breathtaking photos, slowly turning to life through moving pictures and charming animations were all skillfully combined. His live presentation was not only informative, but it was witty and delightfully entertaining.
Waves of Clouds, a phenomenon that I have only seen in Tenerife.
