The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the web and selected by National Geographic editors. We look for work that affirms National Geographic’s mission of inspiring people to care about the planet. The filmmakers created the content presented, and the opinions expressed are their own, not those of the National Geographic Society.

What is it? Amusement Park & Zoo
If Lotte World and Everland is not what you are looking for, try adventuring in Daejeon O World! Daejeon O World was created when Joy Land and Daejeon Zoo were merged under the supervision of the Daejeon City Corporation. Along with the existing exhibits, Joy Land and the renamed Zoo Land, Daejeon O World opened its own Flower Land.
Zoo Land is currently home to a total of 600 animals of 130 different species including American black bears, Bengal tigers, lions, elephants, giraffes, zebras, and ostriches. Joy Land is where one would find amusement rides, waterslides, and even four-season sledding! Flower Land boasts a number of smaller sections such as Rose Garden, Four Season Garden, Herb Garden, and Maze Garden and is home to a total of 150,000 tress of 100 different species and 200,000 flowers of 85 different species. It is definitely a sight to see, especially at night due to Flower Land’s special lighting effects. In addition to these three main areas, there are outdoor stages and events; you will always find something to do at Daejeon O World.
South Korea is a country of transformation. Exporting goods such as electronics, cars, and pop music it has become one of the world’s biggest economies. All this development has created an amazing culture that is quite diverse. From the non-stop city of Seoul to the traditional mountain towns, South Korea was an easy choice for our next Skate and Explore adventure.

Time Lapse Video of Seoul, Korea – “Seoulites” [ROK On!]
I worked three years on this Seoul Timelapse/Hyperlapse.
Three years of no social life, three years of ditching my friends and events and ignoring my girlfriend so I could be out on some roof. I’d say each shot was on average 6 hours of work.
Some shots I reshot 4-5 times until I got it right. Around 400 pictures each time I went out but I would end up using around 200 for each clip at 99fps. Each clip on average is 1 second 22 frames. Close to three terabytes of storage. I shot everything RAW to use my camera sensor to the max.
I spent alot of money in equipment and in taxis/buses/subway and bribes to get on roofs – all I expect in return is that you share this with others and subscribe ^^
