This will capture what ‘family’ means from multi-generational hoteliers to family professional managers
The Leading Hotels of the World, Ltd. is the prestigious luxury hospitality organization representing nearly 430 of the world’s finest hotels, resorts and spas.
We travelled to 11 different cities in 7 different countries to interview selected hotel properties and their respective family members. What makes it special is the narrative is from the interviewees with no script or prompts and the subtle movement on the lead camera.
All of the Families selected had interesting stories to tell and they represented a cross-section of families important to LHW brand from a historical perspective. We also ensured we created various stylish cut-away shots to reflect the individual nature of the hotel and the shots show we had captured a cross-section of countries representative to the brand lending balance to the overall film.
We took a journalist style to the interviews to ensure we were on message for the brief and this approach brought out the best in all interviewees.
We used a range of techniques such as a drone, 2 cameras and semi-circular tracks with a traditional clapper board to sync both cameras, and used the same director on all shoots to ensure consistency throughout the film.
We also used a range of iconic stylised shots to illustrate the wide range of locations and guest experiences from the selected hotels from around the world.
