"Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return." — Leonardo da Vinci

At the beginning of 2014, I was accepted for a filmmaker internship programme at EUROPASS centro studi europeo in Florence, Italy. During April 2014, I worked on many video projects including teaching videos about Italian language, presentations, interviews and concept videos in English, Italian, Dutch, Spanish, and Portuguese.

The Cinque Terre | Italy

The Cinque Terre | ENG
Videographer and Video Editor: Cem Bilen | Filmmaker Internship Programme at Europass Florence

The Cinque Terreis a rugged portion of coast on the Italian Riviera. It is in the Liguria region of Italy, to the west of the city of La Spezia. "The Five Lands" comprises five villages: Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore. The coastline, the five villages, and the surrounding hillsides are all part of the Cinque Terre National Park and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Over the centuries, people have carefully built terraces on the rugged, steep landscape right up to the cliffs that overlook the sea. Part of its charm is the lack of visible corporate development. Paths, trains and boats connect the villages, and cars cannot reach them from the outside. The Cinque Terre area is a very popular tourist destination.(source: wikipedia)
