Behind-the-scenes video chosen out of 2,000 submissions, 40 countries

Written by Andrew Gapinski


CycleHere Media produced a 30 second video to market the new Gilded Age behind-the-scenes tour for the Lightner Museum. This tour offers guests a glimpse of what the formal Alcazar Hotel was like at the turn of the century. With the feel of the museum’s previous Dressing Downton™ costume exhibition, the video’s concept delivered just enough intrigue to tempt visitors into this must-see event. The behind-the-scenes tour was so popular that the museum is extending it indefinitely.

Out of more than 2,000 submissions from 40 countries, CycleHere Media won a Rose Gold recognition in the 2018 Muse Creative Awards competition in the video cultural category. The Muse Creative Awards is an international competition for creative professionals who inspire through concept, writing or design, whether through traditional or electronic media.

“The Lightner Museum is very pleased with the video work and how it showcased our behind-the-scenes tour.  We believe that it will only lead to more successful and creative tours in the future.” – Barry Myers, Lightner Museum Curator

“The Lightner Museum is such a gem. Just imagining the scenes that played out within the walls of the former Alcazar Hotel is so alluring. We loved cinematically creating and capturing the intrigue that draws you up the stairs and down the halls. And we’re thrilled to have it recognized in an international awards competition, the Muse Creative Awards.  If you haven’t experienced the Upstairs-Downstairs tour, it is a must. Then, make sure to sign up for a museum membership because there is so much more to come. Cheers to The Lightner!” – Donald & Janice Jones, CycleHere Media
