My Trip to Miami
All Films • 30-Oct-2018
Wearing five GoPro cameras, a man attempts to visit every one of Trip Advisor’s “Top 315 Attractions in Miami'. Don’t say “I miss you.” Say “the content would have been better if you’d been in it.” That’s how Dylan (played by writer/director/camera platform Dylan Redford) begins trying to patch things up with his girlfriend, who he's hastily dumped to film a promo video of his Miami vacation in hopes of launching his new life as a TripAdvisor-funded travel influencer (tripfluencer?). The shoot has been kind of a disaster, but Dylan pluckily splices in fake stories about moonlight hookups and wise locals to buff up the inspo content of his visit. As he satirizes the typical self-shot travel video, prying off the genre’s presentationally blissful veneer and diving into the hell of actual tourism, Redford plays an ambitious doofus who’s thoroughly inoculated to the effects of failure, because he lives there. -Jonathan Kieran.
