Hi everybody I'm searching for creative input :)

My biggest target customer group for my (hopefully this week) BMCC-video work will be hotel- / resortvideos for their website. I plan on offering
different packages but mostly am looking for a up to 1 minute teaser video for their landing pages and a 3-4 min global clip demoing the hotel.
I live in a highly touristic area with >200 4* Hotels and nearly nobody has a decent video, it's a really growing market.

My problem now is that I was searching on vimeo and youtube for highquality videos to get inspirations and show potential clients what
could be done but I'm having a really hard time finding good videos :confused:

Does anybody know some good exmples? Here are 3 videos that I like, very different style but all good on their own:

and one really expensive one:

Any input is highly appreciated

My advice would to be to do a video for free. Then use it for your portfolio.

Oh yes, that I'm doing for sure. What I'm looking for are good hotel/resort-videos as inspiration for me. I'm more the left-brained technical guy so I need lotsa inspiration from others :)

Wuudi, here's one I found yesterday by coincidence... I was looking for examples of Bolex lenses, 'cause I've already picked up a couple for the Pocket camera.

I made this proof of concept video for the Hilton out here. It's not as artsy as the ones you posted but maybe it can give you some ideas.
I shot it in about 6 hours with a glidecam, slider and three lenses.

Hi JS,
sales is (at least for me) the hardest part ;)
I'm not directly involved in it since I have some contacts to internet-agencys that will do that job for me, I'm focusing on delivering great examples so they can show some good stuff to the potential clients...
