Burning Man is happening next week in the Nevada desert, where over 60,000 people are expected to gather to create Black Rock City. Check out these Burning Man videos on Tripfilms to get an inside look at the event famous for creating a community based on radical inclusion, self-reliance, and self-expression.
Each year a city forms in the deserts of Nevada and grows almost overnight to 50,000 strong. The City is Black Rock City and the Festival is Burning Man. No amount of preparation, research, or videos watchin’ can get you ready for the Burning Man Experience; but there are a few things you need to know to survive the harsh desert climate for a week. This quick video will offer you some tips to get your brain going, the rest is up to you.
Burning Man—an experiment in community, radical self-expression, and radical self-reliance. This was our first burn. No matter how much you research, how many videos you watch, or how many photos you look at, nothing prepares you for what lies ahead. People ask us “what is burning man?” Our response: “It’s anything you want it to be!” It doesn’t matter what your reason is for going, or what you are looking for, you can find it in Black Rock City. It’s an unbelievable experience with a flow that can be described as yin and yang. People and things co-exist in this city that don’t exist anywhere else in the world. I can’t tell you what others experienced, or what your burn will be, but I can tell you about our first burn.
Through the eyes of a first time Burner. A week long collision of art and music, of people and nature, of sights and sounds that echo across the playa between the silence of the desert. This is a glimpse of what I experienced and tried to absorb during my time in Black Rock City. Cinematography and Editing by Kien Lam Music: “Burn” by Ellie Goulding Shot with a Nikon D800 and Sony NEX-6. Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8, 80-200 f/2.8 and Sony 16-50mm f/3.5-4.5.
I can’t be held responsible if you watch this video AND I really can’t be held responsible if you go to Burning Man. Life isn’t the same afterwards though.
