The hotel video production process

Experience is an important factor in creating a successful hotel video production. Here we explain a few of the key steps involved when planning your video.

Your objectives

Make sure you know why you want a video and what you intend to do with it. Being clear on how you intend to use it will affect many things including the content.

Video content

When it comes to showcasing your hotel, what are the priorities? For some it is meeting and events whereas for others it is leisure or weddings. Will your video be one that includes everything or are you thinking of a series of short focus videos?

People

For an engaging production a good hotel video often includes people. For this, will you use models hired in or are you going to ask staff to be part of the video? Also, what is your policy on guests and do you need model release forms.

Storyboard

At TMC we will help you with the creative process. There are many forms your video can take and unless you already have specific thoughts we will be delighted to come up with innovative ideas for you. Once agreed on the creative approach and content we will develop a detailed storyboard. This will serve as a useful guide before, during and after filming.

Schedule

From the storyboard the shot list is then created. Depending on the size of the property and the content to be included we usually film over 2-3 days. It’s important that from the shot list a detailed schedule is created so you can plan ahead and make sure everyone is in place at the right time.
