Watchtower of Turkey: 2,200 Miles in 20 Days Condensed into a 3-Minute Visual Treat


Filmmaker Leonardo Dalessandri recently spent 20 days in Turkey, and by the looks of it, he didn’t stand still for a single minute of it. Over the course of that 20 days, he travelled almost 2,200 miles with his camera equipment in tow, capturing the video and time-lapse clips he eventually compiled into the 3-minute visual journey embedded above.

The video’s success is testament enough to its quality. In three days it’s accumulated over half a million hits on Vimeo and the well-deserved hyperbolic descriptors are getting hard to keep track of.


From the video’s description:

Over than 3500 km traveled in 20 days, capturing landscapes from the bluish tones of Pamukkale to the warm ones of Cappadocia, the all passing by a great variation of colors, lights and weathers through six other cities.

I’ve crossed Cappadocia, Pamukkale, Ephesus, Istanbul, Konya; and tasted baklava, kunefe, doner, the turkish tea; and got the chance to meet the soul of Turkey, its people.. and got their smiles and their hospitality.
This is Turkey lived by me from north to south, and I hope you enjoy it.
