20130622-100154.jpg
We were delighted to get the call a few months ago from Mark Warner’s online marketing manager Polly Ziegler, asking us to create a video for each one of the company’s 7 summer destinations.
Many of you may already know that we have been working with Mark Warner Holidays for over 3 years now and have created over 30+ experiential activity videos for their summer and winter holidays as well as numerous How To videos on everything from “how to windsurf” to “how to read a ski map.”

20130622-132203.jpg
So when it came to the pre-production discussions about this particular project, we were already very much on the same page as our clients (another reason we just love working with clients over the long term) We sprang into action on the 2nd of July with 4 days at Lemnos Resort in Greece.

20130622-132439.jpg
This was followed by a flight to Rhodes, Greece to film Levante Resort for 5 and a half days.

20130622-132712.jpg

A 3 hour ferry ride to Kos gave us another 4 days to film Lakitira resort as well as some general hotel shots of Helona which was luckily situated a few hundred meters down the beach. (Incidentally, Lakitira was where Carole and I got engaged over 3 years ago on our first Mark Warner holiday shoot :)

20130622-133449.jpg
Another short 1 hour ferry to Turkey found us filming the all inclusive Sea Garden Resort in Bodrum, and finally a quick stop off in Brighton, back in the UK, to where we find ourselves now. Typing a blog post on our phones on a bus to London Heathrow, ready to fly to Sardinia in Italy.

20130622-133638.jpg
This time we will be spending a full week at Perdepera resort covering everything it has to offer as well as some of the local areas. We fly out of Italy on the 29th July to Heathrow, landing late that night, then catching a precious few hours of sleep at a hotel in Gatwick ready to fly out the very next morning at 6am. (It didn’t make sense going back to Brighton)
This flight takes us to Corsica, France to film San Luciano for 1 week. Then back to Brighton for 3 days and finally we fly out to Faro, Portugal to cover Ocean Club resort for another 1 week.

20130622-133914.jpg
And then the really hard work starts of sifting through the Terabytes of video footage to compile a 90 second piece for each one of the 7 Mark Warner Resorts.
So far the shoot has gone very well, with overall great weather, great content (almost 2TB’s so far) and a wealth of extra footage for use in future campaigns.

20130622-134043.jpg
Our daily routine for these shoots is fairly structured, with one of us getting up at about 5am every morning to shoot a timelapse of the sunrise. If the morning light is good we may shoot a few general resort shots before a good hearty breakfast. One of our first duties is to sit down with the Mark Warner Resort manager to discuss our plan for the week and to collect the daily schedules for each of the departments. This way our producer Carole is able to draft up our own daily routine and to make sure that we cover every aspect that needs to be shown in the final product. It doesn’t always go exactly according to plan, sometimes the weather is not a team player and sometimes the mountain bike staff hurt their ankles while scouting locations for us, so we cant get the best shots, but we always make the best out of every situation and find some way to utilize our time i.e photographing or filming rooms and restaurants indoors when the weather is not great.

20130622-134353.jpg
The whole experience from the start of this production has been great so far, with all of the managers, staff and even the guests being very enthusiastic about us filming them, sometimes even adding in their own ideas and local knowledge of things to see and film.

We are looking forward to meeting more Mark Warner staff in the weeks to come and finally putting all our footage together for the Mark Warner Website.

So to settle this matter

The post Getting more out of your travel video editing workshop at Traverse 13 appeared first on travizeo.

]]>
I was very excited about being asked to present a travel video editing workshop at this years Traverse Travel Bloggers Conference. It is set to be a great event with Travel Industry Experts such as Steve Keenan, Mark Frary and Tnooz Editor Kevin May gracing the stage to teach “travel bloggers who lead busy lifestyles and want to gain real hands on knowledge.”

traverse-logo

So not wanting to disappoint, I have sensed some keen interest in my own travel video editing workshop and would love to make sure that what I choose to teach that day is useful to everyone in attendance.

Unfortunately, video editing is not something that can be perfected in a day, so my decision on what to teach would be based on what will actually be useful to those attending my workshop. So to settle this matter and get a little insight before Traverse, please select one of the choices below.

The first choice is for a “Simple Intro to Video Editing” which will cover the very basics such as importing clips, getting familiar with an editing interface, choosing cuts and placing them on the timeline as well as adding music and basic fading. The second choice is for a “More Advanced Video Editing Tips” workshop where I will cover certain aspects that youtube can’t teach you such as levels for different kinds of audio, effective intro and outro transitions, project management and rendering for the web as well as some youtube channel optimisation techniques to make sure your videos get seen online.

If you are however inclined to choose the first option, I would honestly recommend watching this playlist as it is a great place to get yourself up to speed with editing on Premiere pro. I will be doing the workshop on Premiere pro, but the skills I hope to teach everyone are easily transferable to any editing system. So please do pick an option below and let me know what I should focus on in my workshop. Thanks and I hope to see you all at 14:40 in Room 1.

Regards,

Greg Brand – Creative Director

We’ve been lucky enough to call Brighton home for about 4 years now, so last year, around about this time, we spent the day with Jo Taylor exploring some of our favourite spots.

From the Local Farmers Market, to the Brighton Wheel , to The Duke of Yorks Cinema, to The New Moshimo, to the Angel Food Bakery, to the Brighton North Laines , to the Royal Pavilion Ice Rink, and finally, Plateau Restaurant

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves that day and hope you will come and visit, pop into some of our favourite spots, find some new one’s and maybe even make your own video to show us how it went.

Send us your videos and we may just spend a day filming you in Brighton as you take us to all your favourite places.

If you live in London, and you love great BBQ, you have no doubt heard of Bodeans.
This last weekend they celebrated a decade of great BBQ with a night of Ribs, Butts and Rock n Roll called ButtStock 2012.

Travizeo was invited along to film the festivities and we were able to snap a few quick stills which you can see below.

If you would like to see all the videos we are busy editing, please subscribe to our youtube channel here

Please verify your settings, clear your RSS cache on the Slickr Flickr Admin page and check your Flickr feed

Back in 2002 Andre Blais had a dream – to bring the taste, the style, the soul of his beloved Kansas City barbecue to London town.

10 years later, the Bodean’s family of diner-delis goes from strength to strength – the result of a tireless team effort dedicated to living the dream.

Ice hockey and all-round sports nut Andre is a team player, and among his big hitters are award-winning chefs making sure that when you eat at Bodean’s you’re getting the real thing just as surely as if you were sitting 3775 miles away in KC, USA.

A massive Thanks you to Boss Hog Andre Blais for inviting us to this awesome event. Here’s to another 10 years of great Bodeans BBQ!

More about the TB2TV Project

Video Blogging or Vlogging has no doubt become a very important part of our culture.
Youtube is practically bursting at the seems with amazing vloggers, some of whom have been able to make a living out of talking to camera.
With the rise of online video, businesses have begun to sit up and take notice of these vloggers who have thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of followers.
The same thing is starting to happen in the travel industry, with companies such as Contiki taking groups of youtube vloggers on amazing trips around the world, in a group effort to showcase their products. Who wouldn’t want to be a part of that?

It has, for a while now, been an idea of ours to get more travel bloggers to start vlogging, as we think they already have half of what it takes to become a great vlogger.
1. They are passionate about travel
2. They know how to research a good travel story
and 3. They are passionate about travel (Yes, it’s very important to be passionate about your subject matter)

We have met more than a few travel bloggers in the UK, who fit the bill perfectly, aside from 2 small yet necessary traits.
1. Knowing how to use a camera properly and how to edit videos
and 2. Being able to confidently talk to camera.

Even I suffer from a lack on confidence in front of the camera, so here is what we are planning to do:

Travizeo, the travel video agency in partnership with renowned travel bloggers Four Jandals, and the worlds biggest and best resource of online travel videos Tripfilms, have created the “Travel Blogger to Travel Vlogger” workshop and online course for any travel bloggers who are interested in learning how to create successful and engaging travel video content.

If this sounds like you, all you need to do is send us an email to hello@travizeo with the subject
“Travel Blogger to Vlogger”

Tell us a little about yourself and your travel blog, why you would like to be a part of this and what equipment you already have to work with, and remember, even an iPhone can be used to create great travel videos.

The physical workshops will be held in Brighton – UK, once or twice every few months, but we welcome anyone from around the world to enrol in our online workshop.

You might be asking yourself about now “how much is all of this going to cost” and we are very glad to say “nothing at all”
You will just need to get yourself down to the venue every time we have a workshop.

We look forward to hearing from you and getting started on this exciting project!!

As many of you may already know, our lovely clients at Mark Warner Holidays asked us to create a series of videos about their summer holiday packages. The campaign was so successful, they asked us to come back and create another series of videos about their winter holidays.
The travizeo team spent 2 weeks at various Mark Warner Chalet Hotels in Val d’Isere and Tignes in the French Alps, but it was no holiday at all. Our camera team, Greg and Carole, came back with over 740 Gigabytes worth of footage. Shooting almost 40 interviews with various family’s, guests and Mark Warner staff on the latest Canon C300 and 5Dmk3 cinema Cameras.
The editing was soon underway and Mark Warner now have 7 new experiential videos, 10 ‘How to’ videos and 3 Recruitment videos as well. Our amazing sound producer Paul Hamlin created all the music you will hear in the videos.  We will slowly be releasing all the videos onto the Mark Warner Website as well as here on Travizeo. So please subscribe and tune in each week for a new video.
Here is the first of the experiential videos, an ‘Introduction to Mark Warner Skiing Holidays.’

If you think your travel brand or destination could also use some targeted online marketing, then we do have a lot to chat about.
