Jon Urbana’s Creative Video Explorations

Jon Urbana is a man of many talents. He was a Villanova Wildcats lacrosse player (defense) originally. After his athletic career, he began exploring his creative side and took a deep interest in philanthropy (see: GoFundMe). A whole host of talents (more details at about.me) began to emerge. One of those talents is creating videos. Jon Urbana’s personal views of his subjects grip the audience. His videos range in complexity but all are quite entertaining and creative.

In many cases, the subjects that Jon Urbana covers in his videos are airplanes, animals, or are located in Ellipse USA’s office setting. In his recent “Giraffes Butting Heads” he has captured two giraffes in the wild lightheartedly sparring (https://vimeo.com/151865213). In his video ” The Stunning Mountains Of Alaska” (https://vimeo.com/151865112), Jon Urbana utilizes time-lapse video of the mountains which is fascinating to watch because the clouds appear to dance in the footage.

Since he owns Next Level Lacrosse Camp, which now has its 2016 summer sessions open for registration amidst a beautiful scenic backdrop in the mountains of Vail, you’ll sometimes find video footage captured from the camp. Read more about the camp’s staff and Jon Urbana at the Next Level Lacrosse Camp “About” page, or get a full recap of last year’s itinerary, which is still available via Urbana’s Facebook page.

He also combines aerial video footage and a few water feature shots on his official blog with the mountains in the background. In a recent visit to Alaska, he created the short film “Cross Country Skiing” (https://vimeo.com/151865002). Jon goes on an adventure in the Alaskan wilderness with a small crew. This is yet another effort to document the beauty of Alaska.

Sometimes Jon Urbana creates very simplistic, short, eye-catching videos. One is particular is called “Goldfish In A Cabernet Glass” (https://vimeo.com/150142307). The video is only about a minute long but it is fascinating. He uses a dark background to bring out the color of the goldfish. Jon Urbana is a multifaceted and talented individual. His videos are just some examples of his creative abilities. Urbana is a multi-talented artist to keep your eye on. No doubt there will be more great videos to come.
