We are a young film team from Lienz in East Tyrol, Austria. Our passion: brass music, culture & customs.
... at the beginning our name was "FAR HD" and later we changed it to "a-media", Armin put the first videos online on YouTube. In the meantime we have more than 200 videos on the TirolVideo YouTube channel and we inspire millions of people all over the world.
Many people are not taking us seriously and asking us why we are not filming more "contemporary" videos?
But we want to give everyone the opportunity to experience the customs and traditions in our country, no matter where they are. Also it is important for us, that our videos serve as a documentation. Nowadays, customs and events are often lost, they are abolished or even forbidden, they are no longer exemplified and thus not passed on to the next generations.
The main focus is on brass music. This has always connected people, no matter what language they speak or where they live. Especially in Tyrol brass music plays an important role in the society.
It's not just us who hold on to that. This is also proven by the number of clicks on the videos and the positive feedback which we receive again and again. This is also a big motivation for us to continue!
Camera & Cut
I am proud of our country, our traditions and customs. Therefore, it is very important to me to capture them in picture and sound. Since I am a passionate musician, the Tyrolean wind music is very important to me.

1. Is this your full-time job?
No, we do this in our free-time, especially in the summer.
3. Are you making these videos for free?
Basically, yes, if we put the videos online on our YouTube channel.
4. What types of videos are you making?
We only make videos where the tradition and culture of Tyrol is showing. Almost all of them are brass music videos of district music festivals and concerts.
5. Do you only make YouTube videos?
Not always, sometimes we are recording various live performances. These videos are not shown on YouTube because they are only available for the associations itself.
6. How many videos have you already made?
Unfortunately, we can not answer this question, because the 200 videos we have on our YouTube channel are only these videos we are showing officially.
7. Which area is the most important one for you?
Mostly South Tirol, East- and North Tyrol but also Salzburg, Carinthia and Vienna.
8. Which film equipment do you use?
We work exclusively with Sony camcorders, which are equipped with external microphones. Of course, sometimes we are using GoPro action cams, as well as our DJI drone.
9. Who is your audience on YouTube?
Most viewers are from Germany, Austria and Italy. A lot of viewers are from France, USA and the United Kingdom.
10. How can I support TirolVideo?
You can help us with your subscription on YouTube, Instagram and Facebook. But we are also very grateful for any financial support, as the majority of our videos are created free. → HERE's our donation account.
