TRAVEL & TOURISM
The Middle East & Indian Ocean region are filled with complex social and traditional values that require a capacity for cultural understanding and sensitivity. A rich tapestry of heritage and history has shaped a region filled with amazing destinations.
For many, the misunderstood perception of Arabia as a desert filled sand box with little diversity has made the task of promoting a rapidly growing sophisticated tourism infrastructure a little tough and challenging. As filmmakers, we have embraced that challenge over the years, producing films that define the core values of this region.
Most of our commercial video & film production has been focused on the tourism, travel & hospitality sectors, having produced numerous award winning destination films for government authorities and hotels, DMC's and tour companies.
With the evolution of eco-tourism in the region, synergy between tourism projects with our natural history approach has created countless commercial opportunities over the last few years.
Previously, we developed a specialization for destination films for emerging tourism markets. Given our extensive knowledge and sensitivity of regional cultures, we have been able to guide destinations such as the Sultanate of Oman and Sharjah during their launch to the global travel industry market.
The essence of a destination film captures the core values of that destination, imbuing a definitive set of visuals with culture, heritage, environment, facilities, hospitality and unique POS that characterize the destination itself. In addition, we add activities and interest sector specialities designed to enhance the destination making it attractive and relevant to specific markets.
We make no excuses for being a family oriented business based on shared interests and our love for animals and the welfare of our natural world.
