Travel and Adventure

One of our favourite briefs is to create an awe-inspiring film for the travel and tourism industry, showcasing amazing places and adventure opportunities from around the world with a fun blend of unique storytelling, tactile sound design and breath-taking images. From destination videos and travel guides to accommodation and activities, we can showcase everything your itinerary has to offer. 

Travel and adventure tourism is one of those industries that was simply made for the medium of video, and these films create instant fear of missing out (‘FOMO’) about any experience they showcase – think how many millions scroll through these from their office cubicles, dreaming of an escape! These films are particularly effective across multiple social media platforms, and also work very well for captive audiences watching in-flight promotions or cinema advertising. 

As our name suggests we love to explore the unknown, and have been lucky enough to work with some exciting adventure and travel companies to create some of our most eye-catching content. As a freelancer, our director Steve has worked all over the world on some great TV shows as a shooting producer, camera operator and editor in places as diverse as Papua New Guinea, Greece, Portugal, France, the Philippines, Myanmar, Hong Kong, Iceland, Austria, Finland, Croatia  and the United States. 

We have done particular work to promote the tourism and leisure sector in developing regions, making stunning films about little-known places to really put them on the map.  For this we have often needed to work with local fixers, travel consultants and overseas local government authorities. 

Adventure travel is a fast-growing trend and it can mean anything from biking and hiking to parachute jumping, depending on who you ask. There are several popular choices of ‘travel and adventure’ video. A destination video will often promote history and culture as well as specific tourist activities, while a journey-centred video centres on the fun of getting to the destination, whether it be sailing, driving or getting the train or something more unconventional.  Many travel videos will often have a simple story of a protagonist getting to experience the fun as we follow along. Sequence and transitional shots help us link the various sections together and immersive sound design brings the story truly to life. We particularly like creating composite shots in our custom transitions to whoosh the audience from one location to another.

We are always on the lookout for new ways to showcase an exciting travel experiences using the latest technology, and use immersive POV shots, action sports cameras, drone, time-lapses and more.
