Bourne Leisure



Client Brief:

To produce 15 individual interactive Master DVD-ROMs, which would then be replicated and used by Bourne Leisure to market holidays and caravan ownership within their holiday parks which were situated throughout the UK. A separate generic slide show was included within the DVD, sponsored by ‘Willerby Caravans’ and featuring an interactive directory relating to each and every model of Willerby caravan.


Working Relationship:

  • I had the pleasure of working with these clients for a number of years, during which I filmed at all of their holiday parks and conducted film interviews with staff, caravan owners, holiday guests and TV presenters. I not only produced interactive DVD-ROMs, but also sales and training DVDs along with a marketing DVD for the largest European static caravan manufacturer, Willerby Caravans, who were based in Hull.
  • I was solely responsible for scripting, storyboarding, filming and editing all of these productions. I arranged various celebrity voice-overs and designed the DVD on-body printing and the DVD slipcases.
  • I co-ordinated and arranged all the replication of the DVDs and DVD slipcases.
  • I produced the floor plans and photographed all the caravan pictures, holiday pictures and scenic pictures that were used within the interactive DVD-ROMs

These two videos are clips taken from a number of videos that I produced for this client. The film footage was also used within the interactive DVD-ROMs that were produced. The film shoots took place over a number of years and often required going back to a particular holiday park to up-date the film footage. I had a company helicopter at my disposal for any aerial footage that was required and I had the great pleasure of working alongside two wonderful television presenters. David Bellamy was a particular joy to work with and he ranks in my top five of all time favourite presenters.

I designed and arranged the printing of all the DVD slip case covers, I also designed the on-body print for the DVD’s and arranged the replication of over 150,000 DVD’s which were mailed out and given away via a number of promotional campaigns.

Over an extensive period of time I produced and designed a number of interactive programmes, which were widely used to promote caravan sales. I also produced a number of staff training programmes and some TV commercials, which were shown on regional television.

Each interactive DVD-ROM contained hundreds of pages of information, with a unique menu system that I developed which allowed the user to easily navigate their way through the programme. My company was at the forefront of cutting edge technology when these programmes were produced and my company led the way in interactive DVD design and development. At the same time that we were producing these programmes I was also working exclusively with Sony UK on the interactive touch screens that were due to be placed within Estate Agency windows. I was responsible for siting the very first of these unique marketing tools in the window of Spring Estate Agency in Beverley.
