I never thought to tell them to do the first series of videos in English – they are completely bi-lingual so they automatically spoke in French for the clip. I will aks them to do a series in English and german next time.
I have been meaning to make videos of our accommodation in Villa Roquette for a long time. In fact I have been planning to do this since we started using the Internet for our marketing in 1997 and I have no excuses.
I trained as a film maker and have been involved in hundreds of movies and TV productions, on both sides of the camera, but perhaps this has been a handicap rather than an advantage.
But I may have found the solution – by getting my children to make the clips for me. All I have done to help is to stipulate they are done in one take with no editing, are kept to a maximum of 90 seconds per clip and that there is a presenter taking to camera.
This shows Olive as a two room suite which can accommodate four people plus a cot if required. Olive can be a full self catering apartment or a B&B for two people
