It’s been 2 years since my first burn and 2 years since I created the original “We are Midburn.” I was so excited to share what I was experiencing with the world, yet in the end I was left feeling as if I didn’t really participate when I watched it all play out in front of my lens. With a serious case of FOMO, last year I decided that I would put down my lens and truly immerse myself in everything Midburn had to offer. Don’t get me wrong, I had an amazing time, but I suppose that itch to capture the beauty in front of me never truly goes away. I realized that I have the most fun when interacting with people who are expressing their truth. I think the magic of Burning Man is that there are so many different ways to participate and so many experiences to be had, and just maybe this is mine... Thank you, everyone, who allowed me to film, play, and dance with you. This is my gift to you.
WILD: Africa is calling
This film tells the story of my trip to the land of Tanzania. I was commissioned by Safari Company, a boutique travel company specializing in Safari trips, to set out to Africa and create a travel video for their company.
My journey took me through the endless plains of the Serengeti, the Ngorongoro Crater, and countless villages filled with beautiful and kind people. It feels like the little magic that is still left in the world can be found in Tanzania. Put on your headphones and watch on your computer screen in a darkened room for the best experience. Thank you Safari company for sending me out on this journey. I seriously recommend to anyone who is looking to go to Africa to reach out to these guys. I was truly overwhelmed by my experience over
there. Thank you Directed, shot, edited & AE by Dan Lior
