Tourism videos tend to feature sweeping helicopter shots and footage that looks like it was taken while hanging off the side of a cliff. And while those are pretty, they don’t really show what most travelers can expect to see. The 35 Million Directors project, developed by DDB Canada’s Vancouver office, invited Canadians to upload their videos of Canada to help us show the world what a visit to Canada is really like. The final video is made up entirely of footage uploaded by Canadians.
