The Showcase spotlights the most captivating short videos from filmmakers around the world selected by the National Geographic video team, particularly work that affirms National Geographic’s mission of inspiring people to care about the planet.
Young German traveller and filmmaker, Marko Roth, visited Oman with some friends, documenting their journey as they went. The resultant “12 Days in Oman” film is a breath-taking sequence of experiences set to music.
Mona Tannous, Sultante of Oman Tourism Country Manager, Australia/New Zealand commented, “Every day we have the great privilege of telling the stories of Oman to potential visitors and our travel trade partners, increasing their awareness of the wonderful experiences that await in Oman. We’re absolutely passionate about it. We know well how stunning it is. And yet, every now and then a traveller’s photo, or film or blog post will just stop us in our tracks. Marko’s film is one of those. Four minutes, 12 days, a visual showcase of infinite possibilities.”
Mr Roth’s film is an immersion in moments that played out across the length on Oman during his visit. It sweeps across dramatic landscapes, reveals the remarkable spaces enclosed by the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque, the Royal Opera House Muscat and the Mutrah souq, and brings to life the spirit of the wonderful Omani people.
