Have you ever heard the terms “adventure media,” “adventure videography,” or “adventure photography” before? Adventure media is a rather new term used to describe video that captures the adventurous spirit of humanity. This could be anything from a short promo highlighting your company’s outdoor equipment to a fully-fledged outdoor adventure documentary. Although video has been a major driving force in media for a while now, we at Wild Acorns Media realize that there are always more stories out there to tell, and we want to tell them! Keep reading to learn more about what adventure media means to us.


Storytelling has always been a big part of human history. Not only are stories the best way for us to learn from our ancestors how to live our lives and what matters in life, but it’s the ultimate form of entertainment. Digital media is bigger than ever and stories are being told all around us through high production value movies, indie film producers, and the news.

But you don’t need the budget of a major film production company or a mainstream news program in order to have your story be told. At Wild Acorns Media, we realize that everyone has the potential to tell a great story with the help of a videographer.

High-Quality Productions

Most people who want to get into film or photography find that it’s much more difficult than they originally thought. In addition to being a great storyteller, you also have to be aware of and know how to implement all the newest video production technology to make the most of it. And since new video technology is being released constantly, you have to stay up-to-date with everything that’s going on in the industry

But adventure videography is about a lot more than simply capturing footage. Any form of field production requires you to be able to deal with the elements and anything else that could get in the way of you completing your video. The challenge comes with creating a high-quality production even when all the odds are all stacked against you.

Drawing In Your Audience

Another thing that differentiates adventure video from other forms of video production is the way it draws you in. In an informational video, for example, you’re going to get a lot of talking heads. This is because you want the focus to be on the information, whereas in adventure video, the focus is more on the action and telling a story through that. This doesn’t mean that you can’t have talking heads, but it will often be covered up with B role so the audience isn’t pulled out of the action.

Multi-Purpose Production

Another important thing to note about adventure video is that adventure media doesn’t just have one purpose and can be used for business-related reasons or not depending on what your goal is. Maybe you’re trying to sell a product and want to advertise it in a unique way or maybe you’re planning a really cool trip to the mountains and want to be able to document it. Adventure is a part of human nature, so as long as you have an audience and a story to be told, you can make use of adventure photography.  

One way that many companies or individuals use adventure video or photography is to liven up a website. A huge part of our communication nowadays is done through the internet and customers are probably expecting you to have a website that’s professionally done and tells people why they should invest in your products. A professional adventure video can really add the finishing touches to a beautifully designed website.
