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. It will be interesting to see how other countries are branded and what messages they send.Related news:THE IMPORTANCE OF QUALITY PROMOTIONAL VIDEO IN TOURISMOVER 170 TOURIST FILMS IN COMPETITION AT ZAGREB TOURFILM FESTIVALWATCH THE PHENOMENAL TEASER OF SARAJEVO VIDEO GUIDE
When Candy Yee sits in the stands at a USC sporting event, she is doing more than just watching students play a game; she is cheering on the students that she has come to consider her children.“We’ll sit in the stands and we’ll see them playing like it’s my son or daughter out there,” Yee said. “It makes you proud of them. It makes you proud to be a Trojan.”Sweet stuff · Alumna Candy Yee works at the sports information desk in Heritage Hall on Thursdays and Fridays. She writes a blog about USC news and sport events. – Priyanka Patel | Daily TrojanYee and her husband, Jim, are regular fixtures at most home sporting events, but many students know them as the smiling faces, always ready with a cheerful greeting and some candy at the Heritage Hall information desk on Thursdays and Fridays.They began volunteering at the information desk about six years ago, but Yee had already been a member of the Trojan Family for nearly 50 years. In 1964, she moved from Houston to Los Angeles to begin her undergraduate degree in elementary education at USC.“It’s football that brought me in,” Yee said of her decision to attend USC over Columbia University, UC Berkeley and UCLA.It was more than just football that made her stay. As a student, Yee was involved in a variety of student organizations, including the election committee, the Amazons (now the Helenes) and the Delta Phi sorority.After graduating, she kept coming back, attending athletic events with her husband. She became a member of Town and Gown and the Trojan Guild. All three of her children were accepted to USC, and one of her daughters attended.“My daughter was also in Helenes,” Yee said. “It was kind of an honor to have her in it.”After retiring from 37 years as a teacher in Los Angeles, Yee heard about an opening for volunteers at the Heritage Hall information desk from a friend and she and her husband decided to volunteer.“I missed being with children,” she said. “A lot of the athletes that come in are like [my] kids.”Their official job is to help direct visitors and provide more information about USC, but when other volunteers suggested they give out candy, Trojan Candy was created.“We put some [candy] up, and then we started doing more and more different things,” Yee said. “Certain kids came, and they liked certain things so we’d make sure we had it next time, and it’s just kind of grown.”Now, students who stop by the information desk when the Yees are volunteering are treated to a variety of snacks, from a bag of chips to a candy bar. Most of their regular visitors are athletes, but many students and staff members also stop by for a hello and a snack.“[I love] meeting anybody that goes through Heritage Hall,” Yee said. “I love to meet the people and talk to them. I’ve been known to run out after people because I recognize their faces.”Yee said she knows about three-quarters of the football team, as well as many volleyball, basketball and track athletes. Redshirt sophomore De’Von Flournoy is one of many football players who began visiting Yee his freshman year.“On Wednesdays, I look forward to Thursdays knowing that before my 2:15 meeting, snacks will be here,” Flournoy said. “It’s one of the many traditions here.”Though free snacks might be the initial draw, Yee’s personality is the reason many students come back.“She’s very approachable,” Flournoy said. “It’s not like she just sits here and says hi. She actually asks about how you’re doing and offers an endless supply of goodies.”Yee and her husband pay for the snacks themselves, so they ask visitors for one simple favor — an interview and a photo for Yee’s blog, TrojanCandy.com.“All over the years, when I came to ’SC, I had thought about being a journalist,” Yee said. “I had really wanted to be one of the reporters that interviews the athletes, but in 1964 women didn’t interview athletes.”Yee now has the opportunity to fulfill her dream of interviewing athletes through her blog, which she and her husband began in 2008. The inspiration, however, was not originally to interview students, but to provide alternate sports coverage.“I call [the Los Angeles Times] the UCLA Times,” she said. “They always say nice stuff about UCLA, but put down USC. It’s not fair.”Yee uses her blog, Trojan Justice: The (UC)LA Times Watchdog, to critique the Los Angeles Times coverage, where she also reports on sporting events and interviews with Heritage Hall visitors.
