CrowdShot Media specializes in producing short travel films for online distribution. Our original productions aim to tell entertaining stories of people working and traveling around the world.
Imagine being paid to travel the world? It’s not all glamour for the top travel influencers — it takes work and skill to create digital content that gets you an audience and respect from brands.
Sky’s the Limit follows Canada’s leading travel vloggers as they show us how they make their living. We’ll go behind the scenes to see how they produce weekly, sometimes daily posts of their travel activities, often with no more than a camera and their personality. No film crew, no script.
That skill and experience will come in handy as Sky’s the Limit challenges them to help discover and mentor the next group of top travel influencers. They’ll go head-to-head in a talent search to audition candidates and have them create their own unique travel videos. They have three months to transform everyday people into travel influencers and start building an online audience. The final judges are you, the audience, who get to vote for your favourite videos.
Sky’s the Limit is a 10-episode series that combines three unscripted genres: travel, documentary, and competition. Three influencers, with the help of their peers and partners, will help judge potential candidates — doing this while travelling and creating their own content. They’ll each pick one finalist to mentor, giving them tips on how to create engaging content for the audience to judge. One winner will receive $5,000 to help launch his or her travel video career. Each of the three finalists receive $2,000 worth of photography and travel gear.
The series is expected to go into pre-production in Fall 2019. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn about sponsorship and partnership opportunities.
