The making of the MarGins film

I’ve met some really inspirational and motivated people at the various networking events I’ve been to over the last year.

In July, I set up one of our Glamping tents at a networking event being held at Holkham Studios by Genix.

All set up at Holkham Studios

Such a lovely location and a great opportunity to ‘show off’ our lovely tents in all their glory and talk to lot’s of people about what we offer. It was towards the end of the event that I had a discussion with James, who had just set up his own business, Expedition Studio, providing creative services including film production, illustration, graphic design, 3D modelling, visualisations, photography and virtual reality.

James was really interested in our walking holidays and seemed to have a really good idea of what we offer our guests. So I mentioned that we would like to create a film that could tell the story of our unique holidays and the rest is history…….so they say.

We both agreed the best way for him to capture our holidays was to experience them! But we needed ‘reasonable’ weather to create a film to encourage people to want to come and not put them off. However, I was quite keen to not just include blue skies as we all know that just isn’t the reality!

So in September, James and his partner enjoyed a few days on the beautiful North Norfolk Coast glamping at Burnham Deepdale and Stiffkey whilst exploring and filming in various locations I had identified.

We are thrilled with the end result and think it captures our holidays perfectly. Click here to see the film. It’s only 3 minutes long.

James has written a ‘behind the scenes’ blog on how he filmed it. Have a read, it’s very interesting: Expedition Studio

We are taking bookings for our 2018 season already. Take a look at our holiday options here and do get in touch if you would like any further information.

We love to hear from you.
