Making of “A Catalunya Story” by Brandon Li

This post is all about how a talented filmmaker made what I think is one of the best travel films I’ve seen.

Brandon Li is know online for making snappy and cool travel videos and his previous film “seoul_wave” definitely showcased what he is able to do, both in his camera movement and video editing tricks. His new film however titled “A Catalunya Story” takes this up a notch by introducing a narrative story that has better dialog than many scripted Hollywood films… except his film didn’t have a script. All the dialogue was improved and on top of that no professional actors appear in the film. So how did Brandon create his latest film? Find out all the behind the scenes info in the interview below.
