Along The Ancient Silk Road in China30 minute audio-visual and workshops, Grades 2-12
"In the days of Kublai Khan, merchants traveled a dangerous road, carrying precious cargos of jade, gunpowder, sandalwood, and silk." So opens my audio visual which recreates the spirit of Marco Polo's epic journey across China in the 13th century. The silk road of China was one of the most interesting trips I've even undertaken. The vast expanses, the crumbling ancient cities and the vibrant people all made it unforgettable. These images were shot on Velvia slide film, then later scanned into Final Cut Pro video editing software. Music by Kitaro Cost $500 per day.
