Creating travel video content for the 50+ traveller
Our passion is creating video content that truly brings a destination to life for the viewer.
We believe the best way to do that is by ‘word of mouth’; sharing the first hand experiences of people who have actually been there, done it and have accumulated an awful lot of T-Shirts along the way. We call them our ‘gurus’ – travel writers and commentators – well travelled types who can not only share the benefit of their knowledge but who understand that it’s the destination, not them, that is the star of the show.
Digital production has come a long way since we started in the business over 25 years ago. Costs have fallen dramatically and footage quality just keeps getting better and better. travelguru.tv offers a completely flexible approach from solo shooting using just an iPhone through to full professional crew production. As well as creating unique content, we work closely with all our partners to maximise distribution. Our content appears on this site and on numerous social media platforms. It is also shared with trade and media distributors either in original or reversioned formats.
“Providing much more interesting and engaging content for consumers is key to our marketing objectives so I was delighted to commission travelguru.tv to launch a brand new series of promotional films for consumers, trade and media. Video is vital to improve the quality of content on our online channels and increase our SEO ranking. As a busy tourist board it is reassuring to know you can leave a project of this scale in such capable hands. ”
Joanne Cooke - Consumer Marketing Manager, Tourism Authority of Thailand
“I recommend that everyone take a look at the travelguru.tv pieces on Oman and if you have seen our Cinema Ad you can judge for yourself. Cathy was able to turn around a slightly different campaign, with very tight deadlines and government payment criteria, with successful grace. I would definitely recommend others to consider her services.”
Alison Cryer - Managing Director, Representation Plus
“I have worked with Cathy on multiple projects since 1993. I cannot recommend the services of Travelguru.tv, highly enough. Cathy is extremely well-known and respected in the travel industry and I have never heard anyone mention her name without singing her praises. She is also a fantastic creative thinker and always ahead of the game when coming up with forward-thinking and innovative ideas.”
Richard Hume - Owner, Hume Whitehead (representing Tenerife, Macau and Indonesia)
“It's always a pleasure to work with Cathy and travelguru.tv. On each occasion we have achieved the goals set out without hassle. I would recommend travelguru.tv and Cathy to anyone looking for a professional and creative travel video sales solution.”
Sharon Bernstein - Communications Director at Eyes2Market UK
“Cathy was a delight to work with. Very professional and approachable. We run hiking holidays and Cathy joined us on a tour in Italy. She fitted into the group perfectly and was sensitive to other guests' needs. We loved all the videos she produced and the useful advice she shared with us too. I look forward to her working with us again and would highly recommend her.”
Jackie Parsons - Owner, Hedonistic Hiking
“I asked Cathy to help me create a series of videos to effectively introduce a brand new destination to the UK Travel Industry - Ajman. The multiple edits that Cathy produced were not only spot on in terms of style and messaging, but they were delivered in a very timely manner indeed. I would have no hesitation in recommending her if you were considering this style of video production.”
Ian Scott - UK Director, Ajman Tourist Board
“Cathy produces some amazing videos and really has an eye for what will work and how to get the key messages across. We first commissioned her to do a short UK video to see how it would look and how we could use it in marketing. As a company it was a big step for us but it has proved so successful and popular that we have started to build up a portfolio of videos with Cathy and are aiming to have her produce 3 a year on different tours and destinations. The videos Cathy has produced to date feature on our website, in emarketing and on Social Media on a regular basis, we also use them as a running background at shows and events. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, her videos are worth thousands more!”
