I created this thread for any kind of urban videos - post those which you have created yourself.

I'll start with one of my videos - it shows metro area of Frankfurt, driving with bus from Hahn airport to the city.

Vow!! Quite a nice music you have made! And, although crappy in terms of quality, video is very artistic and beautiful! The sun in forefront is like a symbol to hope for Latvia in future.

I think we had similar thread already. Am I right?
Hmm, I think there was a thread for Riga videos, but can't remember there was one for all cities/urban videos.

My last night's work - new musical video about Riga. This is my best admission of love to Riga until now. I have used naive but uplifting ditty from Latvian retro pop archives (something like socialistic realism in popmusic) and have added translations in English of song lyrics (they could be imperfect in grammar though). Music composer: Raimonds Pauls, singer: Ojars Grinbergs, lyrics: Ziedonis Purvs, photos and production by me. Watch in Youtube, don't forget to click on HD and then on full screen to get the real hi-fi experience:

My video of southern entrance road to Riga

20 km ride through Riga suburban area and city suburbs from southern entrance to the city until bus station. This entrance road is actually in shameful condition, except some rebuilt parts closer to Southern bridge. It is planned to build completely new highway in future and the current southern entrance road will serve as a local road for Kekava town and urban area inhabitants then.

Absolutely outstanding videos! Aren't you professional camera man or smt like that? Some episodes looks like from some documental film. And the camera Panasonic HDC HD9 - seems very old/rare, couldn't find any info on the net, but the quality is incredible - so great and natural colours! Btw, very interesting and original, and appropriate music choice!
Bangkok looks like a future city of some sci-fi film from 70ies with all those elevated highways. At first, I wanted to ask, "but what's so special about that Bangkok?", but after video watching I don't want anymore. You managed to capture some really interesting, unique feeling of that city. Would love to visit it some day.

Thanks ;)
Too bad it actually takes some effort to take videos and later edit them. I guess I'm getting too lazy for that. I should have realised that before buying that camcorder because I have a feeling that I'm not really using it :|

And it's true, Bangkok does look like a sci-fi city in places. But surely it's not just that. It's an amazing city like no other (not least because of safety and generally peaceful, relaxed and very open-minded character). And I even stick to that after having visited Hong Kong, Singapore, KL and other wonderful cities. Bangkok was one that stuck in my mind the deepest :)
