CONGRATULATIONS DANIEL MAGANA

WINNER OF THE 2016 ULTIMATE TRAVELLER VIDEO COMPETITION

SPIRIT OF A JOURNEY

Daniel Magana | Age 19 | Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico

You can view Daniel's amazing video below. 

Perhaps one of the comments on the video (competition link above) from Gina Zohn sums it up beautifully…

Daniel´s passion for intensity is clearly revealed throughout this short, touching and remarkable film. I am impressed by the clarity of his message and at the same time by the gentle, yet convincing, way in which he addresses tough controversial topics, such as religion, race, beauty, ecology, human action, friendship, freedom, feelings, emotions, progress, economics, climate, and architecture of nature and of the world, just to name a few. The selection of images, sequences, contrasts, music, and the transitions, turn this movie into an exhilarating experience, one that invites me to wanting to travel through the reflective lenses Daniel offers us to wear, in order to reach greater awareness of the world we live in and of our role in it. What a relief to see a very young man starting to move others in a productive direction! This is the type of leadership we need.

Daniel won a Travel Adventure to the value of $10,000 AUD which includes $2,000 AUD spending money...
