Strategy & Execution

The emergent strategy prescribed a promotional video to announce and promote the sale among a target audience of existing customers. Original footage was shot on location in the Expedia offices in Vancouver and featured homegrown talent including VRX’s Chair and Controller.

The final video included a mix of the original footage, existing B-roll, motion graphics, as well as a selection of supplier footage from Princess Cruises. VRX helped conceive the video script and manage the comprehensive production details including voiceover, audio sound track, art direction and video editing.

RESULTS

The video was well received and exceeded client expectations by celebrating the brand’s essence and competitive advantage. The video was featured on the CSC landing page and also used across a variety of digital campaigns. The sale became one of the most successful annual sales to date (at the time), and yielded a 10x increase in expected revenue.
