The Leading Hotels of the World Family Film

Around the world

Promotional Brand Film Campaign

The Project

We were commissioned to produce a promotional film to capture what ‘family’ means, from multi-generational hoteliers to family professional managers. 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 that the narrative is purely provided by the interviewees with no script or prompts, with subtle movement on the lead camera. All of the families selected had interesting stories to tell and represented a cross-section of families important to the Leading Hotels of the World brand from a historical perspective. We also ensured we created various stylish cutaway shots to reflect the individual nature of the hotel. We 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, two cameras, and semi-circular tracks with a traditional clapper board to sync both cameras. The same director was used on all shoots to ensure consistency throughout the film. We also used a range of iconic stylised shots to illustrate the wide range in locations and guest experiences of the selected hotels from around the world.
