Casey Carr Wins Gold & Silver Magellan Awards from Travel Weekly in 2016
Films in India & Africa
Our Silver Winner, “Discover Your Africa” for Lion World Travel, was shot on location in South Africa, Kenya, Tanzania & Rwanda, and features the voice of longtime Sharon Carr Travel friend and KRLD News Host, the great Mitch Carr. I wanted to capture Lion World Travel’s incredible safari experience, and the customization that they offer our travelers with a full range of accommodations and experiences, from chasing the Great Migration in East Africa, to diving with Great White Sharks in South Africa and trekking with Mountain Gorillas in Rwanda & Uganda.
Our film “India & the Sacred Ganges” for Uniworld Boutique River Cruises brought us our second Gold Magellan. This was filmed on location in India in January 2016 on the inaugural sailing of Uniworld’s brand new ship the Ganges Voyager II, my longtime collaborator and producer Mike Williams was along for the shoot. This extraordinary itinerary follows the famed Golden Triangle for a week before setting sail on the world’s only Holy River, the Sacred Ganges through remote villages and rural areas. This film wrote itself, India is a dazzling experience and Uniworld’s itinerary hits all of the important spots. We tried to capture the incredible cultural experience, Uniworld’s spectacular service and accommodations, and their excellent guides who really make this a profound learning experience.
Casey & Globe Trek Productions have now earned a total of 5 Magellan awards in just 3 years (since 2013)!
