Charles Lynch a real estate photographer from Littlehampton, AU just outside of Adelaide in Southern Australia recently posted a marvelous little video in the PFRE flickr group. Charles recently attended one of Allan MacKenzie's real estate video workshops in Adelaide and is applying some of the concepts that Allan teaches in his video workshop.
This little 2:23 video is, I think, an excellent example of how video can be used to communicate a strong sense of place. This quiet time-lapse sunrise on Silver Lake with early morning fog rising off the lake, ducks and calm soothing music makes a powerful emotional statement about this special place. No words, just soothing music and strong images. Everything about this video says quiet, rural special place. It creates an emotional pull that draws me to want to come see it! Just what you want to do with a property vid. This approach obviously isn't going to work for every property but it sure works on this one!
Congratulations to Charles and Allan!
