first_imgVideo 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.

Ben Kay: Ireland coach Joe Schmidt has risky strategy

first_imgJoe Schmidt has adopted a “risky strategy” in preparing Ireland to peak for a potential World Cup Pool D decider against France, according to Ben Kay. Schmidt is aiming to guide double RBS 6 Nations winners Ireland to their first-ever World Cup semi-final, with 2003 winner Kay backing the Kiwi boss in his calculated gamble. “One of their issues has been looking at the fixtures ahead of them and planning,” said former England and Leicester lock Kay. “Because their first World Cup game against Canada, they haven’t performed particularly well, then Romania – Ireland probably have the easiest draw. “So they’ve got that build-up then they have a tougher game against Italy, and the big one against France at the end. “Speaking to people around the squad they are saying that their build-up has been slightly different in that they are looking to peak slightly later in the tournament. “That’s a risky strategy if you can’t get the confidence.” Former Bay of Plenty coach Schmidt created a feared attacking arsenal as Leinster dominated the European scene, but has reined in that style at Test level. Kay believes the Ireland boss has simply reacted to resources, but pinpointed Ireland’s suffocating style as hugely profitable in high-pressure World Cup contests. Press Association England World Cup winner Kay claims Ireland squad players have revealed head coach Schmidt has staggered their build-up to keep key men fresh for the pivotal clash on Sunday, October 11. Ireland will launch their pool-stage campaign by taking on Canada in Cardiff on Saturday, with Italy and Romania their other early rivals. “Joe Schmidt is tactically one of the best coaches in the world though, and always brings the best out of the squad,” said Kay. “He’s very good at looking at and working on the strengths of the team he has. “When he was at Leinster they had an open style of play because they had that attacking threat. “This Irish team he has gone very much into a style of rugby that suits World Cups. “You don’t see many teams winning World Cup finals running in bagfuls of tries. “While it might not be so exciting to watch, with the high ball to the fore, but in their half-back combination they’ve probably got the most settled game-management team. “They’ve done very well and deservedly managed to reach the second-place ranking in the world earlier this summer. “I worry about their threats in the backline not being quite as strong, with Drico (Brian O’Driscoll) not being there and other players having retired. “But as a forward pack they are capable of arm-wrestling with the best.” last_img read more

Cricket News Harbhajan Singh slams Hardik Pandya, KL Rahul for their ‘outrageous’ remarks

first_imgNew Delhi: Ace Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh on Friday criticised Hardik Pandya and K L Rahul for making ‘outrageous’ remarks on women on the recently-aired episode of Koffee With Karan – hosted by hosted by popular film director Karan Johar – saying they have put the reputations of cricketers at stake. Pandya is under fire for boasting about hooking up with multiple women and being open about it with his parents. Rahul was, however, a little more restrained in his responses on relationships and women. “We don’t talk about all this even with our friends and they were talking on public television. Now people might think was Harbhajan Singh like this, was Anil Kumble like this and was Sachin Tendulkar…” Harbhajan told ‘India Today’.          “The BCCI did the right thing, and this is also the way forward. This was expected and I am not surprised,” the off-spinner, who has over 400 Test wickets, said when asked about their suspension. Virat Kohli, the Indian cricket team skipper, has also condemned the comments of Pandya. “From the Indian cricket team point of view, any inappropriate comments that are made in that scenario are something that we definitely don’t support…and that has been communicated (to the two players. We definitely don’t align with those views and those are purely individual views. The two concerned players (have) felt what has gone wrong and they have understood the magnitude of what’s happened,” Kohli had said.     The under-fire players have been suspended from playing any form of cricket with immediate effect pending an inquiry into their sexist comments. The duo will return home from the ongoing Australia tour and will also miss the limited-overs series against New Zealand consisting of five ODIs and three T20Is, starting January 23.  For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more
