Video is a “must have” tool today when we talk about tourism promotion.But in order to get virality and to stand out from the mass of promotional tourist videos, it is necessary to invest in quality and professional production, which of course costs, but also gives results. With the mass use of drones, new technologies such as 4k video resolution, video in tourism is definitely the main bait for telling a story and creating a motive for coming.And how to stand out from the crowd and tell a story through a video that invites you to visit a tourist destination, demonstrated a young Ukrainian photographer Kirill Neiezhmakov with a new phenomenal timelaps video that takes us through an amazing walk through Rome.In less than three minutes through the “Eternal City” of the most famous sights, its historical past and picturesque areas where you will want to head on arrival when it’s time to relax. Rome is synonymous with history, writes Neezijakov and adds “Where else can you walk in the same footsteps as the emperors, St. Peter, the popes, Michelangelo, Dante, and Raphael, to name a few? The real charm of Rome is that you can easily walk to most of the places from the video”, Said Neiezhmakov.Want to visit Rome after this video and experience live the largest open-air museum in Europe?However, we also have our strong strengths when we talk about time laps video and professional photography, and that is certainly the phenomenal duo Marko Romulić and Dražen Stojčić who are the authors of some of the most famous Croatian timelapse films. After many phenomenal videos, they have been trying for years to catch the spring fog that emerges from the Mirna Valley in Motovun, and it only appears when special weather conditions set in. After many unsuccessful trips and catching the morning fog around the Motovun hill, and perseverance is always rewarded, finally came the day when the magic fog was caught through the lens of Marija and Dražen.Misty Motovun – timelapse movie from Romulic & Stojcic on Vimeo.Always use professional services and watch the quality, not how to go as little as possible and record video with a mobile phone, because in the end the only thing that matters is the final product and the message. Of course, after shooting the video, it is necessary to invest in promoting it so that as many people as possible can see it, because we can have the best product in the world, but if no one knows about it, everything falls into the water.Of course, there are always those who offer services much cheaper…Various professionals and creatives show their skills, and it is up to tourist destinations to see and use the opportunity to promote their tourist destination as well as possible. It is also their main job and they are paid for it. Directors of tourist boards from all over Croatia, you are on the move. Opportunities are there, it’s up to you to take advantage of them, that’s your obligation, isn’t it?Btw, next week, from 13 to 15 September, the International Tourist Film Festival will be held in Zagreb, Zagreb Tourfilm Festival, where 175 tourist films from 76 countries will compete.

Press Association Carroll remains Michael O’Neill’s first choice, having played 15 successive qualifiers prior to the Romania clash, but McGovern is eager to inherit the gloves when the time comes. “I like to think that I have taken my chance now that it’s come,” said the 30-year-old. “Opportunities for me have been few and far between, so when they come I feel like I need to take them and stake my claim. “I’d love to play but of course I understand the situation. Roy has been excellent for Michael since he came back in and I wouldn’t be shouting from the rafters that I should be playing in the next game. “He’s not going to go on forever, but he has a few years left in him, so if I get a wee chance here and there before he does retire hopefully when he does step down I will be in a good position to take over.” Hamilton goalkeeper Michael McGovern believes he can be Northern Ireland’s number one when veteran Roy Carroll decides to call it a day. McGovern made his first competitive start in Saturday’s goalless draw against Romania after 37-year-old Carroll was ruled out with an abdominal problem. That was only his fourth cap in five years, three of which have come since March.
Dimitar Berbatov’s late goal gave 10-man Manchester United victory over Bolton and took their lead at the top of the Premier League to five points.In a first half of few chances, Javier Hernandez shot wide and Martin Petrov hit a free-kick at Edwin van der Sar.Home defender Jonny Evans was shown a straight red card in the second half for a lunge on Stuart Holden.But Berbatov gave United the points by bundling home after Jussi Jaaskelainen failed to hold Nani’s shot.The Bulgarian’s last-gasp strike, coupled with Arsenal’s 2-2 draw at West Brom, allowed United to restore a cushion at the top of the table that had been damaged by defeats at Chelsea and Liverpool.It had looked set to be a frustrating afternoon for the league leaders, who were more than matched by a spirited Bolton side for large parts of the game. Indeed, had Matthew Taylor not directed a free header straight at Edwin van der Sar just moments before Berbatov’s winner, Bolton might have been the victors.Instead, United clinched the win but not without a cost, with Wes Brown being forced off at half-time with a suspected leg injury and Evans now facing a suspension.This will stretch a defence that is already without injured quartet Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic, Rafael da Silva and John O’Shea.The patched-up United back four was regularly tested by Wanderers in an evenly contested first half.Van der Sar was equal to Petrov’s free-kick, Johan Elmander had a shot blocked by Patrice Evra and the backline, well led by Chris Smalling, was forced to repel a wave of Bolton attacks. At the other end, United were perhaps unfairly denied a penalty by referee Andre Marriner when Hernandez’s shot hit the outstretched arm of a sliding Gary Cahill.In addition to this, Wayne Rooney acrobatically hooked a shot straight at Jaaskelainen and Hernandez missed the target from close range after being fed by a Rooney cut-back.United boss Sir Alex Ferguson, serving the first of a five-match touchline ban, was in regular telephone contact with the United dugout and acted to change his side at half-time, replacing the injured Brown with Fabio da Silva and replacing Hernandez with Berbatov.But, despite the open nature of the game, the changes brought United no closer to a breakthrough, with their attacks regularly thwarted by the excellent Bolton central defensive pair of Cahill and David Wheater.Berbatov curled a shot wide and was then denied a clear run on goal by a last-ditch challenge from Cahill, as United moved closer to drawing a blank in a Premier League game at Old Trafford for the first time since September 2009. Then, the game sparked into life with the dismissal of Evans.The Northern Ireland international slid into a 50-50 challenge with Holden with his studs showing and his foot slightly off the floor. He was shown a straight red, while Holden was stretchered off with a gash in his knee.Holden was replaced by Taylor and the substitute soon had a chance to open the scoring but wasted Wanderers’ best opportunity of the afternoon when, left unmarked in the United penalty box, he could only head Gretar Steinsson’s cross at Van der Sar.Soon after, Nani cut inside from the United right and saw an effort beaten away by Jaaskelainen.The Portugal international then tried his luck from the opposite side and this time the Bolton keeper could only parry the ball back into the path of Berbatov, who poked home to give United what could prove to be a vital three points.
