Jon Norman from Beer YHA wanted to make a promotional film showing the Beer YHA youth hostel. The film was shot over two days including a special event for The Big Lunch.

We used all the gear to put this film together, making good use of the jib and tracking equipment to get some really stylish and cinematic shots. The film follows our 'webfilm' format, based on an interview and cutting away to shot to give context and maintain an exciting rhythm.

This film runs a bit longer than a typical webfilm due to the extra number of points Jon wanted to make. The film is also designed to be distributed on DVD where the longer running time would be expected. It still works equally well online, however.

The Beer YHA is a stunning building set in the charming seaside town of Beer on the south coast of Devon.

  1. What a fabulous film, it certainly makes me want to come and stay there, I watched it with the thought of offering a stay to some of Wwoofers and because Ben Vallack had made the film. I must say I am totally impressed. I will help to promote YHA Beer via social media!

  2. Well, of course I loved it because my family featured in it!! - my 5 seconds of fame!!
    I will say that I cannot recommend Beer YHA enough. We were welcomed like family; the rooms were scrupulously clean and the food excellent. Jon is an excellent host, very warm and friendly.
    I went back to the site because I was wondering about a family gathering for my **th - only trouble is; it is in February (next year) and the weather is so unpredictable at that time of year! Perhaps I should be like the Queen and have a second birthday later in the year when the weather is better!
