Film Crew to Update Promotional Tourism Video
A film crew of two will be visiting St Helena between 24 June and 02 July 2010. The film crew is from a company called Magnetic Media who, as well as making broadcast television programmes for Channel 4 and the BBC, also run a company that makes various promotional videos. Based on their timely proposal to film St Helena, they have been chosen to update our promotional tourism video.
The latest version of our promotional DVD is entitled ‘Discover St Helena’, produced in 2006 by a German company called Little Sparrow. Although many features of the current film have not changed, it is now time for a fresh take on the promotional video, which is aimed at capturing St Helena’s uniquely rich diversity of heritage-based attractions, both built and natural.
Magnetic Media’s project proposes to produce a long-form video which will be converted onto DVD, with space for capturing touristy activities and interviews of people with knowledge about the island’s past and, people involved with the natural environment explaining facets of our natural tourism assets such as the geology, flora and fauna, essentially bringing the attractions and images of St Helena to life.
The project will also include production of a short-form video, predominantly visual, with images of the sights of the island. This will primarily be used to upload onto the tourism website and various other websites. St Helena Tourism will also have stock footage as a by-product of both videos which can be used for various promotional and PR activities.
