The Journey to the North Pole by Richard Attenborough
Two years ago, in a video posted to his YouTube channel, Richard Attentions first film, The Journey, premiered in the UK, and quickly became a worldwide phenomenon.
Now, the filmmaker has released a new, extended version of the movie for the first time in over three years, and it’s a spectacularly gorgeous affair.
And the best part is, you don’t even have to watch the original movie to get the full experience.
The movie starts with a beautiful shot of an ancient Japanese landscape in a dark forest.
Attentance is brisk, and the camera moves from side to side, taking in the landscape as if it were an aerial photograph.
It’s an interesting shot, but what sets it apart from most of Attenbings previous films is the detail that he adds to the landscape.
The mountains are almost entirely red, while the hills are green and shimmering.
The river that runs through the forest is a beautiful blue.
The blue sky is also saturated in deep blue, with clouds hanging like giant pinnacles from the river.
Attenbs attention to detail is a refreshing touch, and I can see why it was one of his most popular films.
Here are some of the highlights from the new trailer:It’s an incredibly well-executed film, and is a delight to watch.
But it’s also a very special experience.
You get to experience the moment Attenions first picture was shot.
You can sit in front of the camera and watch the whole thing in a single sitting.
And then you can get a close-up view of a landscape that was never captured before.
I’ve watched it again and again, and have enjoyed it immensely.
If you’re into Attenbachs visual style, you’ll definitely love this version of The Journey.
It has a distinct visual style that you won’t be able to put down.
