Published - 29-March-2019
Tripoto, the global travel community, has partnered with Singapore Tourism Board to create an innovative travel web series ‘Trails 2 Passion – Singapore Redefined’.
The seven-episode, web series showcases the experiential exploration of Singapore by Naveen Kasturia and Veer Rajwant Singh, well-known faces in the OTT world. The series will be aired on April 1.
'Trails 2 Passion – Singapore Redefined' will take viewers along the journey of these two actors in Singapore where they plan their own trails in order to ensure exploration of their true passions. While Naveen Kasturia, a creative guy who is extremely busy in life and ruled by stress will indulge in curated local experiences, Veer Rajwant Singh, a happy-go-lucky guy, will have ultra-luxe experiences.
Naveen Kasturia says, "When Tripoto approached me for this project, I didn’t give it a second thought. I said yes as I knew I had to do it. It is for the first time that I have done an experiential travel show and it has been quite an experience. As an actor, I had my moment of truth and got a chance to improvise and be spontaneous in front of the camera. Travel puts a lot of things into perspective and shooting for this show made me explore Singapore by breaking off the monotonous planned schedules I am used to following. Veer and I had a blast traveling through Singapore, reveling in the culture and the offbeat experiences this place had to offer. I am sure our audience too will be left awestruck following our travel trails through Singapore."
Adding to his experience, Veer Rajwant Singh said, "I have been wanting to do a travel show for some time. It is because you are not merely acting, you are living your passion and enacting as is. I explored a whole new side of me in Singapore in an entirely different light. Most of my shots were real-time reactions to the experiences curated. Not only did I try some cool adventure activities, I also came in touch with glocal experiences, more of which you will see in Trails 2 Passion – Singapore Redefined.”
The 6-7 minutes, 7-episode web-series will have upbeat and catchy content on Singapore, with extra information and illustrated trail map of the theme at the end of each episode. Speaking on the association with Singapore Tourism Board and coming with such fun series, Michael Lyngdoh, Co-Founder, Tripoto, says, “Tripoto and STB are collaborating to showcase a different side to Singapore. It is an amalgamation of exciting culinary experiences, adrenaline pumping adventures and beautifully diverse cultures packed into one city. Singapore now appeals to the global experiential traveller. Our new web series “Trails 2 Passion” is the story of two friends travelling through Singapore and discovering their passions along the way. It’s entertaining, fun and informative; just as great immersive travel content should be.”
The series will be around themes such as food, exploration, adventure and culture aimed at showcasing Singapore as not only a fun and adventurous destination but also high on art and culture. The episodes intend to spark the interest in the viewer to see Singapore in a new light and to introduce them to the 6 passion tribes under the Passion Made Possible brand i.e. Foodie, Explorer, Collector, Culture Shaper, Action Seeker or Socialiser.
Speaking on their association with Tripoto, GB Srithar, Regional Director (South Asia Middle East and Africa), Singapore Tourism Board, says: “With a high penetration of smart phones and growing number of digital native young consuming content online, there are new, exciting opportunities to connect with them. Our partnership with Tripoto is a creative way of telling Singapore tourism stories. We are happy to have two cool millennials - Naveen and Veer showcase their recent trip. "Trails 2 Passion - Singapore Redefined" tells their stories, in their own voices. Their escapades will entice Indian travellers to enjoy our diverse offerings and live up their own passions”
The screening of ‘Trails 2 Passion – Singapore Redefined’ will be held on March 30 with actor Veer Rajwant Singh at DLF Promenade from 5pm. He will be sharing anecdotes from his Singapore travel and engage with the audience for a travel quiz at the event where one winner will be rewarded with couple tickets to Singapore and runner-ups will go home with Tripoto goodies.For more updates, subscribe to exchange4media's WhatsApp Channel- https://bit.ly/2QUdLCK
