After creating a series of bespoke films for last years event I was asked to return this year to lead the digital experience and content creation.
The client wanted to encourage networking and friendly competition. They wanted inspiring, insightful and educational content and messaging. They wanted it all to look amazing. We had five weeks to deliver.
I was responsible for creatively directing the conception and production of an event specific app and writing and directing several films - one of which was shot live during the event.
Leading a large team that included designers, copywriters, animators, editors, films crews and post production houses required a multitude of tools and process to keep the team on track and the client up to speed. Treatments, moodboards, scamps, wireframes and animatics were among many devices used indicatively through every stage of production from conception to delivery. A few examples are shown in the slideshow on the left.
A live digital experience that played to the audiences competitive nature through extensive use of gamification techniques. A virtual reality timeline that use 3D models to bring to life the history of CRH and a suite of films that brought the senior leadership's message to life in an engaging and inspiring way.
A gamified live experience that utilised the location with an augmented 'Pokemon style' game and a networking experience that created a fun way for attendees to meet and get to know colleagues.

I wrote and directed two live action films, an animated film and a brand sting. The film's content brought to life the messaging from the Global Leadership team in an inspiring and engaging manner. The 3 films where a mix of inspiration, motivation, business strategy and a fun, live event diary.
Watch the slideshow on the left to see highlights of all films.
The films where shown in front of 300+ people and received an ovation from the audience. The app usage was extremely high with attendees using it throughout the event - day and night - and achieving record numbers of connections. The VR experience was a first for many attendees. Both client and attendees were very complimentary about the experience and the content and have already requested a repeat for next year. Now we just need to go one better!
