Volcanoes fascinate but spread fear and terror at the same time. They can devastate whole regions during a very short timeframe, but also provide the basis for new life. The lava emerging from a volcanic eruption gives rise to islands and creates mineral-rich soils where plants grow well. Thanks to these fertile soils, roughly half a billion people worldwide live in close proximity to active volcanoes. Many of them are well aware of the danger – but they take this risk in exchange for abundant crops and warm thermal water. Especially on Iceland and in Japan, bathing in hot springs is very popular. But not only the physical well-being benefits from the hot water, it is also being used for energy production.
Are you hungry? Then this video is nothing for you. You should at least have a deliciously looking carrot in reach before pressing the “play” button. ‘Cause this video is made by real gourmets. Foods are shown in their most appetizing perspective: vegetables or meat, milk or wine, herbs or honey – everything so fresh and juicy, creamy and crunchy, luscious and mouth-watering that you will hardly stand not taking a bite of your carrot. It’s already too late? Then please go on – bon appétit!
BTW: Even we are slow food fans, our footage is being delivered so fast that working on your project will become a pure relish.
Only a few more days until the opening of the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi. Some of our colleagues (real fans…) are already watching archive videos of ski and bobsled races to get trained for the upcoming spectacle. Even it might be thrilling for only very few people to study vast amounts of ice skater movements, we thought that the following video is really diverting – it covers a US reportage of the Winter Olympic Games in Innsbruck, exactly 50 years ago.
Let’s wait and see if Sochi can compete with Innsbruck in terms of new sports, tourist attractions and elegant winter fashion 😉
Parabéns! On January 25th Brazil is celebrating the 460th birthday of its largest city São Paulo. Good occasion for the Brazilians to get into party mood – after all, this year is going to be tougher than usual for their stamina. But who ever experienced the Carnival in Rio de Janeiro, will have no doubt that the FIFA World Cup 2014 will be one of the most cheerful events ever! If you are traveling to Brazil for the world cup, please train your condition before boarding a plane.
But Brazil should not be cut down to soccer and carnival only, this fascinating and beautiful country has so much more to offer. Magnificent landscapes, impressive mega cities and an incomparable multifariousness make Brazil a dream destination – even if one cannot dance Samba (yet).
Today is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, a day to celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King – one of the greatest political leaders of 20th century. King helped to organize the 1963 March on Washington, where he delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech. More than 250.000 participants made the March on Washington in August 1963 to the greatest demonstration for civil rights and freedom that America had ever seen so far.
“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character – I have a dream today.” In 1968 King was planning a national occupation of Washington, D.C., to be called the Poor People’s Campaign, when he was assassinated on April 4, in Memphis, Tennessee.
Today we see that this dream is about to come true. The fight for civil rights goes on every day but many things have changed. Fifty years after the March and 45 years after the assassination of Martin Luther King America has the first African American to hold the office. “Free at last! free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last!”
The stock footage has been shot on 16mm film and transferred to HD by Framepool. Framepool can offer more HD stock footage clips about Martin Luther King for online licensing.

Searching – Finding – Licensing can be fun, check it out yourself!
Winter doesn’t necessarily mean sitting at home and freezing, it can also mean having a lot of fun outside. No matter if you prefer snow or ice, skiing, skating or snowboarding – give your slats and skates a ride! And never mind if your sporty talents are not really Olympic, strolling around in the white landscape is a lot better than freezing at home as well!
People came to leave flowers and candles outside the South African Embassy in Washington D.C. on Thursday night, following the death of Nelson Mandela. While the Embassy’s staff are currently working elsewhere, while renovations take place, a statue of South Africa’s first democratically elected president forms a focal point for tributes.
