This ALS ice bucket challenge will change your mind while two cities are exposed for what they really are..

Challenge accepted
Anthony Carbajal seems like he is mocking the ALS ice bucket challenge at first with his bikini top and hot pants, but watch the whole video and he’ll leave you in tears. Recently, the 26-year-old was diagnosed with the disease and has always feared it as it runs in his family — his mother too battles it. ‘Emotionally all over the place’, the video gives you a touching story of how people live with this and the fears they deal with. It’ll hopefully change the minds of the sceptics. Jail bird’s eye view
New Zealand-based videographer Trey Ratcliff got himself caught by the police in Beijing for using a drone to film the capital of China. But he also managed to capture stunning aerial footage before the camera was seized. Titled Beijing from Above, the video was made with a quadcopter and a GoPro and shows the Forbidden City, the palaces, streets, markets and beautiful architecture of the city — enough to tempt you to visit the country.
Open minds
Enter Pyongyang is a collaboration between city­branding pioneer JT Singh and flow-motion videographer Rob Whitworth. Blending time-lapse photography and digital animation, it is all about the dynamism which is worth noting. Fantastic to learn of the reality that transcends all clichés, the film shows the infamous traffic ladies, the stiff yet smiling subway guards, life at work, skaters in a park and even national monuments.
