Tahiti Tourisme has launched a global audition to cast travellers in the latest chapter of its Two Stories One Mana digital video series.
Tahiti Tourisme is launching a global audition for real couples and families. The exercise seeks to introduce the winning line-up to a travel adventure. The cast will be the stars of Two Stories One Mana, a new digital video series promoting the Islands of Tahiti to audiences worldwide.
The series has debuted with videos featuring three real couples who were cast last summer from California and France . To film more chapters, the organisation is searching for fresh faces from across the globe to explore the destination’s beauty, wild terrain, culture, and luxury—while on camera.
For the premiere, French couple Michel and Elisabeth were separated from each other on camera and sent on different discoveries in a surprise twist. She danced, biked on scenic trails, and enjoyed the sunset, while he ‘jeeped’ in the jungle, swam with the sharks, and plunged down a waterfall.
Diverse activities were chosen to capture the essence of Mana—what Tahitians have honored for centuries as the life force surrounding and connecting all living things. The new chapters being released in the coming weeks share the stories of two more couples and their duality of experiences.
To audition, couples and families need to create a 15-second video sharing what inspires them about the Islands of Tahiti and their top three favourite Tahiti activities. The respective audition videos will then have to be shared on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram with the hashtag #TakeMeToTahiti.
The deadline is 5 April. Three couples or families will be chosen and announced in late April. They will spend ten days in Tahiti during June for a filmed adventure depicting the islands’ private luxury, natural beauty, vibrant culture, and unique Mana encounters.
“The experiences we filmed last year were so inspiring we knew we had to do sequels. We again want to find real-life travellers so we can share their genuine island experiences and let people everywhere truly picture themselves here,” said Paul Sloan, CEO of Tahiti Tourisme.
