Over the past two years, we’ve created several videos for Omni Hotels & Resorts. Our relationship with the brand began at The Omni Homestead where we created ten short films about various aspects of the hotel. The corporate team noticed our work and hired us to create photo and video packages for several of their hotel properties. In the past year we’ve created ten property showcase reels for hotels across the country.
“We have been partnering with Altamira over the past year and they have always been an absolute pleasure to work with. They have consistently produced high quality content for us and gone above and beyond what is asked of them. We’re excited to continue fostering the relationship for years to come.” – Marissa Marak, Omni Hotels
Typically these shoots take place over three days. We arrive and scout in the afternoon on day one, shoot 12+ hours on day two, and depart in the morning on day three. We shoot with a 2-3 person team and provide all camera and lighting equipment. For these shoots, we usually have 1-2 representatives from Omni Corporate and one person from the property on site with us to help keep things running smoothly. Deliverables include a 30-second video edit and 75+ photos.
For projects like this, we shoot with a Canon DLSR camera mounted on a handheld gimbal setup. The camera rig is surprisingly small, but allows us to move quickly and cover a lot of ground in a 2-day shoot. We prefer to work with natural lighting whenever possible, however we do bring a large LED adjustable light panel for all indoor scenes.
In general, these projects are fun to shoot and we’ve built a great relationship with the Omni corporate team.
