The First 6 Months
Flip Florence is a video site dedicated to the city of Florence, started in July 2009. All videos are shot with a Flip HD, hence the name!
The purpose of the site is twofold: firstly, to show visitors to the site the city of Florence as it changes throughout the year and secondly, to create a travel video site on as low a budget as possible.
In the first six months of existence, video from the site has been featured on Sky1 in the UK as well as on the Tuscan Tourist Board’s official site and it has received mentions on Conde Nast’s Concierge.com and from the Microsoft Twitter stream.
Over the course of 2010, the site will have more video added as well as text articles. The site has at the time of writing (December 2009) just had a brand new layout which divides articles into pure video and gives the option of text only.
We will also be offering the opportunity for local businesses to benefit from the explosion of online video in a very cost effective manner.
