Flow-motion videographer Rob Whitworth and place-branding pioneer JT Singh are no strangers to Double Takes. Their latest collaboration takes us on a tour of North Korea's Pyongyang through time-lapse photography, animation, slow motion and a variety of other creative techniques.
"Enter Pyongyang is above all an invitation to explore," says Dr. Parag Khannaon on the video's Vimeo page. "Few places in the world have been as hermetically sealed as North Korea, but Koryo Tours has made it possible not just to see North Korea but to engage with it in ways that were impossible until very recently. This is a window of opportunity not to be missed. If Pyongyang is no longer off limits, no place is."

Cuba remains much of a mystery to many American travelers. Ezaram Vambe's In Havana will certainly pique your interest in the county if you haven't had the pleasure of visiting yet. This short video is almost as good as actually being there.
