Rock and Road
2014 International Student Travel Video Contest Entry
Rock and Road
- Yi Zhang
2 Chinese guitarists, Wing and Wei, from Saint Joseph’s University and Drexel University met each other in US, and decided to create some good musical memories before leaving the country, so they recorded a guitar duet and invited other 4 good friends to make a cross-country road trip. After 2 month and 21 days, the trip was finished and the video came out. Wei and Wing played the song and recorded it into the background music. The song is called Sunshine Surf and originated by Depapepe, a Japanese band that are famous for their acoustic guitar duets. Sunshine Surf is one of the best songs that represent travel, joys, and friends, and that to be played by two acoustic guitars. Roy shot the videos. It was such a pain to choose 5 minutes from almost 50 GB video clips, which are our great stories and memories on the road. The video carries our youth, our dreams, and our friendship. We would love to share our joys, happiness, and also the gorgeous views along the journey with others, and hope this video can make you laugh and think of the best times with your friends. We decided to use the money to start a road trip foundation to encourage physical disabled international students to travel, and hope they can generate more great travel videos!
