I shot all the europe stuff first, anything that looked interesting and had a good story. Then when we got home, i shot interviews with my family of what they thought Europe would be like, what they liked/didn’t like and what they think now that we’re home. I also shot random travel related stuff around our house to portray us as the Ace Travelers that we are. Then, i narrated withthe voice I used forradio commercials. The movie was amazing. Everyone liked it.
