GFORCE Paragliding Web, Video & 360 Degree Video

Client: GFORCE Paragliding in Queenstown


Completed: December 2017

The GFORCE team approached us initially to shoot an in-flight 360° video, with the goal of providing potential customers and booking agents with the closest thing to a Queenstown paragliding experience (before they book and actually experience the flight first-hand). After a number of meetings it became clear that GFORCE’s needs were more substantial; the project scope widened with the addition of a new website and a new promotional video.

The promo video was to be used as a 30 second teaser in booking offices around Queenstown, as well as online mediums. The website required a full re-design, a multi-lingual platform, a very specific operating status widget, and a change in hosting. We combined these two new media assets by creating a web background version of the promo video, placed on their new homepage.

The completed project is an easy-to-navigate website, with the promo video at the forefront, the 360 degree video included and 4 different language options (French, German, Mandarin and English). Check out the 360 video and promo video below…

About GFORCE Paragliding

Take off from the top of the Skyline Gondola and enjoy the ultimate flight with spectacular views of Lake Wakatipu, the mountains, forests and Queenstown itself. GFORCE is the most experienced paragliding company in New Zealand – they’ve been tandem paragliding over Queenstown since 1991!

“360 degree video had us intrigued before we even began working with the guys at 360 New Zealand. We understood the benefits of 360 video and took the opportunity to significantly reshape and future proof our online presence. What we didn’t expect was for the team at 360nz to be able to deliver so much, in such an efficient and cost-effective project.

The guys at 360nz are genuine, effective and very easy to work with. They took on feedback continuously, explained things in simple terms but always gave the “why” when backing up their points. The full project was completed on-time and within budget, and it exceeded our expectations substantially.

Overall, we’re extremely happy with all three new assets, the website, the promo video and the 360 video. The GForce team have been blown away by the quality of delivery and feel that it has been money extremely well spent. We’re now planning to create a longer promotional video with 360nz later on in the summer.”
