With all eyes on Cornwall as the G7 summit approaches, Visit Cornwall is making the most of the opportunity. It’s launched a media and travel trade website aimed at attracting visitors. The website features loads of exciting content, including our series of new Visit Cornwall videos showcasing the region. These films are our most recent work for the destination in a relationship that spans over ten years. To be asked to help to promote the region at such a pivotal moment was an immense privilege.
New Visit Cornwall Videos for International and National Audiences
Created this spring over a six week period, the series of films explore the wealth of things to see and do in Cornwall. Aimed at both home and overseas audiences, they cover a range of activities that visitors can enjoy all year round from art, theatre and food to the exploring the great outdoors. Not only did we get to film in fantastic locations but we also got to meet some brilliant contributors, all of whom spoke about a region that is rich in culture and natural beauty.
For the Art film, we interviewed Kurt Jackson and his son-in law Fynn Tucker at their St Just gallery. They spoke about Cornwall’s inspiring landscapes and its magnetism to artists. We also interviewed chef Jack Stein for our food and drink film. Like his father Rick Stein before him, Jack runs several restaurants and a cookery school in Padstow. He explained the connection between to region’s natural resources and its cuisine. We returned to Geevor Tin Mine to film with local celebrity and Cornwall councillor Loveday Jenkins, an expert in Cornish language who told of Cornwall’s rich cultural heritage. Not all of our contributors were celebrities, however, but every one of them fabulous. A particularly memorable occasion involved filming the Stuns’ls (a Cornish shanty group) on Mevagissey harbour one gloriously sunny evening
Foreign Language Videos for G7 Audiences
Among the new Visit Cornwall videos are several called ‘Welcome to Cornwall’. These were created specifically for audiences from the G7 countries: America, Canada, Italy, France, Germany, Japan. The English language film features local presenter and actress Jenny Beare. Star of the 2020 Visit Cornwall “Time to Reflect’ film, we returned to Jenny for her amazing screen presence and gorgeous accent. In our other G7 focused films, we featured presenters who have made Cornwall their home but originate from either France, Germany or Japan. Speaking their native language, who better to explain what is special about Cornwall than those who chose to live there? Thanks to Jenny, Ugo, Sho, Delphine and Britta for explaining why they love Cornwall. In fact thanks to all who contributed to this project. We really could not have done it without you.
The new films sit on the website alongside our earlier films made for Visit Cornwall (proving that video is a great long-term investment). We wish Visit Cornwall the greatest success in attracting visitors, for now from the UK , but as travel opens up from further afield.
