"...they make the best videos ever!"

 

Stowaway partners Tim McManus and Adam Boozer have a long history of creating content for the travel and tourism industry.

Both are passionate storytellers and have traveled across the globe with their teams creating video content for numerous DMO's.

In 2016 McManus and Boozer decided to form a strategic partnership, combining the capabilities of their two independent production companies, enabling them to focus their combined efforts on creating world class travel and tourism content.

This unique partnership brings together nimble and strategic production capabilities with cinematic and large scale production to offer DMO’s a wide range of video content creation options.

From dog sledding in Sweden to wrangling buffalo in South Dakota,
we have broad experience and diverse expertise that is uniquely positioned to enable travel & tourism brands to succeed.

“Never a ship sails out of bay but carries my heart as a stowaway”

Roselle Mercier Montgomery

Working in some of the most interesting destinations around the globe, we’ve often had to pinch ourselves to make sure we weren’t dreaming. Our travels make us feel a bit like Stowaways, hungry for adventure on some imaginary traveler’s journey. We feel incredibly fortunate to be commissioned by our clients to document these excursions here and yonder. Our ‘ah-ha’ moment struck when we realized that our work enables the viewer to also play the part of Stowaway, following us down the road, into the clouds, or out onto the open sea.

A Different Approach

A Different Approach


scroll down to learn more

Let’s be honest…

A large majority of travel & tourism content created for medium to small market brands is unimaginative to say the least. Without the budgets and agency support of their larger competitors, these brands tend to develop work that is mechanical and often attempts to communicate way too much with too little. At STOWAWAY we approach the work from a different perspective.

Authenticity first and foremost

Years of experience navigating the needs of mult-investor DMO’s

Beautiful and SMART creative that generates results

Cost effective high-end production values

A holistic look from a marketing perspective

MORE THAN simply a production company

“Working with Adam Boozer and the team at Stowaway was completely seamless from concept to completion. Immediately, after the first call, I knew that Adam was a visionary and pioneering artist who would get to the heart of the story that needed to be told of Southwest Louisiana. A destination promotional video has to bring out the emotion, smells, feelings, and spirit of the people. Those things that video cannot literally capture need to somehow resonate with the viewer. Adam is gifted to be able to see what needs to be brought out and how to do it. We felt comfortable giving Stowaway free artistic reign to tell our story, and the results are smiles all around!”

Angie Manning, Communications Director
Lake Charles/Southwest Louisiana Convention & Visitors Bureau.


"We needed someone to do justice to the stories of Charleston that we hoped to capture in several short video vignettes.  STOWAWAY culled hours of conversation, interviews and footage into pieces that inspire our visitors.   We know this because they call to tell us every day."

Director of Marketing
Charleston Area Convention & Visitors Bureau.


“I joined these guys on a shoot at the top of a volcano, and the things they did to get the right shots gave me vertigo.
Good people and solid professionals.”

Destination Assessment & Creative Treatment

There is nothing more valuable than fresh eyes and a fresh perspective. The first step in the majority of our engagements, our destination assessment and creative treatment is a highly visual document to serves as the guidebook for all future execution. These documents can also be shared with third party vendors.

 

Original Content Creation

We specialize in a wide variety of destination specific content. This ranges from short form commercial and web content to promotional films, social media mini films, mobile, editorial and portrait photography and even feature length documentaries.


Simultaneous Motion & Still Acquisition

Our highly collaborative creative team has the ability to capture beautiful moving and still images simultaneously. The result is a cohesive creative vision across all mediums, increased efficiencies in production and the ability for the team to focus entirely on story.


Aerial Cinematography

We have deep experience capturing imagery from the sky. From large helicopter work to small remote multi-rotor units, we understand what it takes to deal with ever changing conditions and the endless variables of aerial work. 


Content Curation

Leveraging the power of a vast library of assets across multiple mediums is sort of a secret weapon. From user-generated and third-party content to new work created on an ongoing basis, enabling quick, sharable and meaningful interactions with your audience is crucial.


Asset Management, Licensing & Distribution

Content is king. Having the ability to distribute the right content to the right media contact, vendor or partner at the right time is critical. We utilize a cloud based archiving system with all media fully searchable by meta data with distribution to right audience just a click away.
