Are you someone that lives for your friends’ vacay pics? If so, you’ll be more than grateful to come across Rick Mereki’s Move film, a short segment featuring a traveler walking in the backdrop of some of the universe’s most iconic locations. What’s really captivating about this series is that the camera only captures the subject walking straight towards the lens or horizontally across the many international backdrops. It’s something to be seen.
Today, clearly realizing that this clip is more than beautiful, teamed up with Rick Mereki to create a New York City version of this symmetrical masterpiece, starring their very own Willie Geist. Before showcasing the clip on air, the cast chatted with Rick and learned that to create the original segment, the production team traveled on 18 flights for a grand total of 38 thousand miles. Rick also explained that the reason Move looks so great is because of symmetry. He said that if the compilation featured a ton of different angles and shots, it wouldn’t look nearly as aesthetically pleasing.
