On 2010-08-29, d-Wizz left Australia to visit Japan and Korea. The trip was to last 79 days, with 5 of these in Japan. This was the longest overseas trip to date.
After his Korean adventure in 2009, d-Wizz produced a 20-minute video consisting solely of still photographs taken on that trip, plus a few custom made slides.
The soundtrack for the video was created specially by d-Wizz from his collection of K-Pop vinyl LPs which he had bought while in Busan.
This video is still available for viewing on the Korean section of the d-Wizz website.
Now it is time for the 2010 trip to be commemorated in a similar way, but this time, there will be much more to enjoy in the experience.Not only was the 2010 trip longer than any other before it, but there were also a few important video clips deemed worthy of sharing.
It was decided that the 2010 edition of Korean Picture Book would be five short movies, each covering a small portion of the trip.
Each segment links seamlessly with the next, and a full-length movie with all five parts has also been released on the website and on VCD.
Part 1 covers the Japanese leg of the trip between 2010-08-30 and 2010-09-02. Two driving videos are included in this section.
Part 2 covers the period 2010-09-02 to 2010-09-20 and includes the "three drummers" video made in Daegu and a panoramic video of Seoul from Gwanaksan on a very rare clear seeing day.
Part 3 covers the period 2010-09-21 to 2010-10-10, including the Seoul Drum Festival and the Jinju Namgung Yudeung Festival.
Part 4 covers the period 2010-10-10 to 2010-10-31, and includes a special 10-minute concert performance in Cheonan by Baekam Methodist Church worship team.
Part 5 covers the period 2010-11-01 to 2010-11-15, including a few short drum videos in Busan.
d-Wizz invites you to share the special memories of the Korean Picture Book 2010, and is looking forward to visiting Korea again in 2012.
