This Week In Real Estate Video #66 – Villa Marguerita and Gilligan Resort Guesthouses

Allan MacKenzie just sent me a tease video edit of a gig that he shot a couple of months ago on Palawan Island in the Philippines. Apparently the same island that a season of American Survivor was shot on.

Allan says:

The gig was a resort guesthouse promotional video shoot and also interiors, exteriors and landscape photography showcasing the picturesque location. The place is just amazing, the sunsets are incredible, and the people are friendly, I was actually surprised to meet American’s that have taken up residency there? It was not only a great creative experience but also a life changing trip for me to see how the other part of the world lives.

My brief is to produce 3 promotional videos in total for the resort guesthouses which includes, the UAV aerials landscape time-lapse footage, lifestyle and water activities, hiking activities etc! As my client said “Allan just want you to do your thing, sell the dream location for the ultimate holiday experience”

This tease video edit is of the time-lapse landscape sequences and a scene from the dji Phantom which was used for the aerial video (the rising shot at the very end of this edit).

As I told Allan, I like this whole video but I especially like the second half from about 1:16 to the end. For me there is a subtle similarity to parts the sound track of the Sydney Pollack film, Out of Africa (Olympic Glory by Y Sazonoff). Although Allan assures me he was not thinking about such a connection when editing or shooting this. In any case I think Allan did a fantastic job on this even though it is just a preliminary cut, I’m anxious to see the final videos.
