  2. 2. The Web is slowly but steadily undergoing a metamorphosis as more and more users are able to create, share, and distribute content on the Web. This shift toward "user generated" content represents one of the biggest changes of the Web since its inception in the early 1990's. This paradigm shift has resulted in a surge in popularity of websites that enables users to build social networks and share content. Collectively, these types of websites are referred to in the media as Web 2.0, to distinguish these from the so-called Web 1.0 sites that host content from established providers.

In their place, the billion-dollar-a-year corporation, which operates five major resorts and twenty hotels, has built a new in-house marketing operation that uses social media and other digital venues to constantly engage skiing enthusiasts in real time”.

  11. 11. YouTube, and its competitors, allow content suppliers to upload video effortlessly, automatically converting from many different formats*, and to tag uploaded videos with keywords. Users can easily share videos by mailing links to them, or embedding them on web pages or in blogs. Users can also rate and comment on videos, bringing new social aspects to the viewing of videos. Consequently, popular videos can rise to the top in a very organic fashion. The social network existing in YouTube further enables communities and groups. Videos are no longer independent from each other, and neither are users. This has substantially contributed to the success of YouTube and similar sites. * YouTube accepts uploaded videos in WMV, AVI, MOV and MPEG formats, which are converted into .FLV (Adobe Flash Video) format after uploading.

  29. 29. Whistler Blackcomb XXS by Switchback Entertainment A day in the life of a miniature Whistler, the biggest little ski area in the world. This video documents a bird's eye view of teeny, tiny Whistler Village and surrounding Whistler Blackcomb mountains, making it a real life snow globe. Essentials of Tourism Destination Management
  30. 30. Whistler Blackcomb XXS “In Fall 2010, Whistler Blackcomb asked us to produce a webisode for them, along the lines of what we’d been producing for Salomon Freeski TV. They gave us an addition challenge of trying to show more of the resort than the powder action of the backcountry and the airtime of the park and pipe. Ideally, they hoped we’d be able to showcase the lift system, vastness of the terrain, and overall feel of the resort. We came back to them with the concept for XXS. We were able to answer all of Whistler Blackcomb’s challenges and the video went on to become the resorts first truly viral hit and has earned more than 500,000 views”. They use digital post production technique for miniature faking, simulating miniature cinematography on full scale filmed sequences. Smallgantics is a digital image process that accurately simulates miniature depth of field (DOF) on full-scale filmed subjects via a "hand-made" digital application. Artificial depth planes, up to 8 layers, are generated by the artist, which distort with each frame of a sequence, giving the artist complete control of a simulated miniature DOF scenario.
