Shot by Academy Award-nominated filmmaking team, MacGillivray Freeman, the first instalment focuses on the superb beauty of Yellowstone National Park.
Portable Park aims to capture the spirit of America’s natural wonders through immersive HD footage. Yellowstone, the first instalment in the series debuted on the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, along with a video guide to the park’s top-rated campgrounds for when it is safe to visit once again. With the loop setting enable, televisions, mobile devices and monitors become an immersive window to the great outdoors, showing powerful images of the park.
“Due to current travel restrictions and quarantine orders in place due to COVID19, Airstream wanted to inspire people to dream and plan for the day when we will once again cross deserts, navigate mountains, and sleep alongside babbling brooks and crashing waves. To stoke dreams and soothe wanderer's souls, Airstream is bringing America’s most majestic outdoor places to the home. Portable Park: Yellowstone delivers the experience of the nation’s first National Park in words and images that will prompt memories, fuel imaginations, and ignite plans for travel post-pandemic,” a representative of Airstream told Lonely Planet.
The content includes drone footage of the park’s winding rivers and green hills, lush forests and incredible volcanic geysers as seen from above. America’s oldest herd of bison can be seen roaming throughout the video, as well as wolves.
According to Airstream, the reaction to the content has been overwhelmingly positive, with the site receiving a high number of views and engagement from people dreaming of once again returning to the great outdoors.
