PROJECT: Yalikavak Marina

ONE MARINA WITH SO MUCH TO SHOOT

CLIENT: Palmarina, Bodrum Turkey. (Recently changed to Yalikavak Marina)

BRIEF: The objective was to create video and photo content to help communicate the experience superyacht owners can enjoy while staying at the marina. To achieve this, we needed to show a couple experiencing the benefits of the marina’s location, guest amenities, and attractions. The results would be for use across digital, print and social media platforms.

CHALLENGE: This marina has a plethora of amenities. There are 620 berths, a beach hotel, a boutique hotel and eight restaurants and bars. There is also a mall with 102 shops, a museum and gallery, nightclub, morning health clubs a gym and a spa. Not only that, there is a lot to do in the surrounding area. So, the challenge was how to incorporate so many locations and elements into one shoot. It required a huge amount of pre-production planning including model selection, storyline development, and developing a shoot sequence. Palmarina had many guests and staff at each location so we had to ensure that we only had the right people in the shot and did not disturb the guests.

CREATIVE STRATEGY: We worked with the client to develop a story involving a romantic couple. The story was to showcase the marina’s resort lifestyle in an interesting and engaging way. There were so many elements to incorporate and we needed to be mindful of keeping the audience's attention. For this reason, we aimed to only give a taste of each location. The shots needed to convey the experience of Palmarina, be artistic and captivate the audience.

OUTCOME: Film: The film shows three days in Palmarina condensed into four minutes. The film is ideal for web and reception use. We also produced numerous short films for their social strategy.

Photos: The client received over 350 photos of the location and the couple enjoying the services provided.
