Southern Sun: Maputo

The promo video for Southern Sun Maputo needed to showcase the hotel itself, and also illustrate the property’s proximity to the beach.

The Brief

MediaRight commissioned Mobile Media Mob to create a promo video for Southern Sun Maputo. The footage needed to showcase the hotel itself, and also illustrate the property’s proximity to the beach.

Four key areas which the client knew would tickle travellers, were identified: accommodation, food, lifestyle and location. We needed to create a short 30sec video for each focus area, as well as a longer format video which would be a dreamy compilation of all of the above.

The MMMob Approach

We asked two of our Jozi-based MMMobsters if they would like to spend a few days in Maputo, on the beach, soaking up the sun and culture. I mean, who wouldn’t… The Videographer and Creative Producer, road tripped to the location for the shoot.

We were asked to use local models as our onscreen couple, and captured natural footage of the two enjoying the hotel and its surroundings – strolls on the beach, romantic lunches, shopping and sightseeing. To show just how close the Southern Sun was to the water, we made use of a drone. The same videographer, experienced in capturing drone footage, put on his pilot hat to capture the Indian Ocean lapping just in front of the hotel.

The result was a collection of content which captured the feel and facilities of Southern Sun Maputo, and made people want to pack a bag and beach.
