Rick Mereki takes audiences on a wild world tour with the 'Move, Eat, Learn' video project. Filmed in 44 days, the Australian filmmaker traveled 11 countries with two cameras and two other guys to capture the different tastes, sights and sounds from around the world. The end result was three short films, each under 2 minutes long, that show the food, locations and experiences lived by the men in just over six weeks.

Through the use of intelligent editing and composition, Mereki shows actor Andrew Lees walking the globe in the 'Move' video. The beautiful imagery would make anyone want to visit these places. The 'Eat' film shows the colorful variety of dishes found in the 11 countries, while the 'Learn' video -- perhaps the most touching of them all -- shows the human connections made in every location. The 'Move, Eat, Learn' project is eye-opening and has definitely given me the itch to travel the globe!
