Special video made by CNN about Hungary – VIDEO
Turizmus Online reports that a short, 1-minute-long video has been made by CNN’s Create team about Hungary. The footage depicts Hungary as the ‘Country of Waters’, giving a fresh perspective: it shows how an open water swimmer sees the country.
The short film is a collaboration between the Hungarian Tourism Agency and CNN. The reason why it is so special is that it presents the country’s known and hidden treasures too from the point of view of a tourist, who has never been to Hungary before.
The production team put together a film that is full of spectacular shots and thoughts that sheds new light on Hungary.
CNN’s Create team arrived at Hungary mid-Jul and spent days on travelling from one destination to the other. The swimmer in the lead role is Vivienne Rickman-Poole.

It was an entirely adventurous and irregular production, as the crew worked without a script written in advance, only the shooting locations were picked out. The final narration and plot was put together based on the protagonist’s impressions and opinion.
In the film, Vivienne Rickman-Poole talks about how beautiful a country Hungary is, and how proud the nation is of their culture and history. She further explains that everyone she’s met was happy to share their experiences and knowledge about the country. Vivienne felt very welcomed in Hungary. She highlighted how amazing the colours of Lake Balaton are.
The shooting production began at Lake Balaton, then they travelled to the Lake Cave of Tapolca. They also shot some scenes at the tarn at Mountain Megyer and at the Danube Bend. At Budapest, they shot at the Gellért and Széchenyi Baths, the Fisherman’s Bastion, the Chain Bridge and at the High Note Sky Bar. At the end of the five-day-shooting an interview was conducted with Vivienne about her impressions and feelings. The interview’s sound footage serves as the film’s narration.
