First, we planned out the virtual tour route in such a way that people are able to navigate throughout the establishment and be able to get the feel for the place as if they are walking through each room and corridor. The idea is to pass this experience on to discovering visitors who have found Umkomaas Lodge for the first time.
The filming process is organised. We checklist points including, loo seats down, all taps facing a certain angle, all toiletries neatly arranged, windows clean, windows closed, mats lined up, all lights on, bedding and pillows arranged. Often we take flowers or extras to give it the feel of being used, with sandals placed prominently and a towel laid accordingly.
The stitching process take a couple of days to complete. We then have a working product, ready to be enbedded into your website.
