To inspire people to walk along the Liberation Route Europe with a scripted inspirational video trailer (in 4K).
Hikers walk trough history
We have 6-8 people in mind who will appear in the trailer during the total walk across the 5 key locations.
The composition of these people is diverse and reflex European society in the age between 18 – 35 years old.
to walk in the footsteps of those who went before
London – Berlin
The opening shot starts with one of the hikers in Normandy (France) walking up to a bunker, overlooking the coast near a bunker.
This could be the grand opening shot.
We will record this with our drone camera which will lift up from the hiker towards the sea;
The shot of the hiker (now) will make a transition to D-Day (then) in the background.
This grand opening is powerful and shows where the hike is all about (catching attention);
Followed by the map with route (London – Berlin) that will be the background during the video;
Visual effects starting with the first key location (Normandy Invasion, preparations in the UK: London / Portsmouth);
Followed by the other key locations, ending at Berlin (see our flow on the website with some examples);
To tell the story we would like to record some testimonials/quotes (soundbites) in different languages or English accents;
connecting the past…
London – Portsmouth
Ardennes Counteroffensive Belgium
Operation Market Garden The Netherlands
Hürtgen Forest Germany
Each key location starts with a historical image or video shot with an effect to this place in 2020.
From this historic image we want to make a similar shot with one of the persons appearing in both images.
The 6-8 hikers will appear in these different locations.
At the end of the promotional video the 6-8 hikers come together in one shot with the map in the background;
…with the future
walk the traces of war
“What an impressive trip”
“I’m halfway now, but want to accomplish this trail soon”
“This tour from London to Berlin is a real highlight in my life”
Recorded & edited with modern technics
Parallax effect with video animation
Not only to reduce costs (travelling, stays, crew and cast) but also to make our technical effects possible by computer modulation, we will record the 6-8 people in a greenscreen studio in the Netherlands in one day after editing the video versions (backgrounds). This makes it possible to fit in all recordings in the right perspective and color.
