FILIPPOS GLOBAL NATURAL ΦOTOGRAPHY

[ReNew Oct 24, 2020]

 

Filippos Fotography Gallery: eYES wIDE oPEN   WATCH THE SLIDE-SLOW ABOVE of more than 30 photos, or scroll for the gallerys. Since I was a boy I loved trippinng around theglobe with my camera in hand, always. Especially in our times, we're the first generation which can travel easily to anywhere in our planet. My trips started on a cruise going to Konstanoypolis, Kusadashi, and the most intriguing Cairo and Luxor in Egypt. There a street boy was dealng about selling souvenirs, and the funniest was that instead of lowrering the price, he asked for more and more!

Salto Angelo in Venezuela. 

           Since then I've been wth my camera as my best friend all around Greece, from motherland Crete to Soufli on the borders with Turkey. Tripping continues with the Interail and travel around Europe, specifically Barcelona, London, Amsterdam, Paris, Nice.

          In later years I went 5 times to Thaliand, and also to Cambodia 3 years after they allowed tourists and yeah, in Pnom Pegn there were dozen of gigantic bats flying around us and yes cockroaches certainly claim to own this land.

            Romania and Transylania in order to see where Dracula lived. Also, did a road trip from Barcelona to Morocco, and a road trip on Route 66 from Los Angeles to Texas and oh boy talking about an adventure... Venezuela is also such a beautiful exotic place, which was my 1st foto travel e-book.

            This part of my site is all about images and not about words. May we share together our beautiful lands and throw the trashies. This is for the glory and perfection of Nature!

*The featured photo is from the borders of Cambodia and Thailand. I asked to take his picture and he asked in return to offer him a cigarette. Kindly notice the "friendly" posture of the locals in his background... The second photo is from Koh Chang in Thailand, and the third one is the longest waterfall on Earth, 1km long, the Salto Angelo in Venezuela.

"BRAZIL DREAM SEQUENCE" (2022)New!
CINEMATIC RIO DE JANEIRO

My Take on Terry Gilliam's "Brazil", Filmed in Rio De Janeiro. When A 30 Year Dream Became A Mindblowing HOT Reality!

  WHAT IS BRAZIL? Terrry Gilliam's "Brazil" is my favorite film of all time since I first admired it 30 years ago. Who'd ever imagine that thirty years later I'd visit Brazil for the very first time and totally fell inlove with Brazil! I mean, I've NEVER felt so home, even if I've already travelled in more than 40 countries in four continents. What is Brazil? Brazil is our dream world. The place where we transfer when we close our eyes. Our ideal world. Where we wanna belong in our near future. When we make our dreams, our reality. Oh boy the Dreams I have about my near future!... Well, here's is their visualization. Out of the 20 fast films I've made, this is my favorite of them all. A dream come true. Definitely watch the film's ending!...

SURVIVING RAW ECUADOR New!
-THE CINEMATIC FILM ADVENTURE! (2022)

Curious about the Amazon and Ecuador? Nine Mini Films in One will Travel You Into Its Heart and Rawness. An Entire New Level in Travel Films?

 

  AMAZON INDIGENOUS TRIBE for 7 days, the Andes, the South Pacific and plenty very unique moments created magically from Nature. They say that one image is a thousand words. What about hundreds of images then, combined with magical tunes and wise lyrics, narrating a much more interesting story than all the movies I've seen the past decade?... I hope you enjoy it! This is how one interacts with Nature, when he’s one with Nature. Follow your eyes. Love Nature! 😘🥳🥰

 

   Every wise man is one with Nature. Coz he’s wise enough for knowing that all nature are co-inhabitants and equal members of one symbiotic body and mind, called Earth. When you embody and live by this knowledge, then you and Nature are one. You feel what Nature feels, you play with nature as if you’re best mates, you love nature as much as yourself, and Nature in return plays with you also. As perfectly exhibited in all my travel films, and especially in this one. Nature almost always creates a mindblowing spectacle for my eyes. And thru my youtube channel, for your eyes also! ;) Thru my Guide in Wisdom abook now, well, it's YOUR opportunity for reaching wisdom and illumination. Free choice.

  Created/Filmed/Mixed: Filippos Marinakis. Filmed in Ecuador, September 2021, with a Cannon 5D, a Lumix G3 and the very handy 4K Lamtech action cam. Edited in 2022.

UNEXPLORED + RAW ECUADOR [2021]
ENJOY LIFE AT ALL CIRCUMSTANCES!

  

    Yeah, yeah I know... We’re under a killer pandemic, we should all hide inside our homes, don’t you dare to move, be afraid, stay away from each other and all this crappy crap of our era. Well, not necessary. It’s still up to us, we still have a choice. And so, I’ve just returned after spending 15 days at the Andes, the ocean, the clubs and the jungles of Ecuador, lived with the indigenous for a quite perfecto week, and coz all of the above ain’t enough I also spent 5 days in dreamy Rio de Janeiro which completely enchanted me. The original idea was to follow the Sun, and Ecuador is where the Sun reaches its nearest point to Earth.

    The funny part is that during these 15 days I must have seen the Sun for not more than 10h total. Hahaha! No matter what, the temperature was steadily around 20-30C, even at the mindblowing and trippy Andes of 2-3km altitude. Also, even if the boy has travelled much before and I’ve been to Latin America before, I’ve never experienced such a journey before! Simply put there are no words, and no feelings I didn’t feel. We shouldn’t let the Pandemic ruin our mood, life is out there and the corona is here to stay. We should all learn to live like before and have a f... blast! Enjoy Life At All Circumstances!

FILM POETRY OF A WISE BOY FROM ANOTHER PLANET- 7 minS (2020)


I promise I didn't change a word from the original script written 7 years before I truly realized that... UH... Hey! I am the true Peter Pan!... Like A Boy from Another Planet! :) I wrote+filmed this super artistic, poetic, thought provocative and, extremely revealing film in 2013, but haven't edited it up till now. When I reread its script in 2020 I was in complete shock! The things I was telling myself about my very spacial origins are literally MINDBLOWING! I don't think that I could have told myself any clearer than this. I think that some people, including me, will start "screaming"! Hahaha :)

VENEZUELA: You’re NOT Alone!
[Dark humour/Solidarity Short FILM-2019]
[6 min. dreamy]

Watch Film? Why is Venezeula called: "The Lost Paradise?" You can now see why! I’ve created a video of Venezuela’s Tropical Beauty as a way to show my solidarity to Venezuelans and to remind them that “They’re NOT Alone!” Be wary, there’s a kind of twisted humour in this short! Lyrics matter in the video.

Why is Venezuela called: "The Lost Paradise?"

 

  I visited the Lost Paradise of Venezuela several years ago and I’m truly saddened from the political turmoil that Venezuelans suffer the past years. Our thoughts are with them! Please Share it with your friends, I think that everybody should know how beautiful Venezuela is and what the stake is. May Venezuela find its peace ASAP. It's also my 1st photo-travel e-book:

Paradise on Earth: Here to Stay, in Morocco (2006)
[8 mins, Street-Art Scenic Video]

How do Moroccans teens spend their time?

Watch Film?

 Trying to catch the trippy scenery & true feeling of Morocco.

 

 

 

 

  Moroccans love swimming and the sea, as they love poking each other. The camera follows their interactions and their efforts to make everything look funny. Morocco is also not part of the African Union, and you can see with your own eyes how a nation can be religious and playful and sexy, simultaneously. Moroccans told us that the burka isn't exactly enforced and its purpose is to show that their family is of high morals and ethics. This is my first YouTube video, during the summer of 2006.

How to Find Answers about Everything?
(2013 & 2019) [6 min. dreamy & inspirational philosophical tHriller]

, and edited 20 secs on 2019

The First Step is Observing The first step is Observing. Then, in order to get great answers, first you need to ask great questions. Is there Truth to be found? Watch what happens when someone does ask the right questions, and how far that takes him, in this Philosophical Dreamy Thriller, filmed in the visually stunning "Mordor like" medieval hilltop monasteries of Meteora/Greece from the 11th century, and inside the 2,500 years old Delphi Temple, where the Oracle shares her wise Message to Mankind. Are we ready for Mankind's Next Step? How to solve most of your problems? Where can one find the Road to Enlightenment? How to find answers about everything?

  The conclusion of this short dream-like film is a "Message to Mankind," given to me, right after my spiritual transportation to the middle of the Cosmos, observing it from a distance; as a result from Decoding the Mona Lisa and her unprecedented deriving knowledge. More information about my historical fiction novel "The Revelation of Mona Li-Sa", which, at last, decodes the Mona Lisa, can be found here: https://filippos.com There, one may also read the Decoding of the Mona Lisa for free, or one may view the decoding video here: https://youtu.be/ENY-cPv5BJo I hope u'll enjoy it! :)

INTO THE NIGHT, ATHENS 2012 (2012)
[2 min. Lyrical short film with English subtitles. 57K views]

Watch Film?A poetic Oliver moon-dreams into the streets of rioting Athens in 2012 seeking for answers in writings on the wall.

Where others see sparkles,
I can see a whole lot of fireworks
.

  This is the initial video we did with Florian using voice over for our narration. Basically, Florian wrote the featured poem the day we first met, I loved it and thought about making a short film around the poem, and film it together with another short film I was preparing about the novel I'm publishing. Since his poem was about writing on a Wall, then we should film around writings on the Wall and into the streets of rioting Athens. We both loved the idea and went on filming it in very after hours. Florian then came up with some amazing editing and very proudly we published it and reached around 55,000 views.
