Ogilvy Singapore has unveiled its first brand film for Changi Airport’s new Jewel retail and leisure attraction, using animation to take viewers on a tour of the new facility due to open on April 17.
The friendship between an imagined bird and a ladybug are used as a device to showcase the “adventure” on offer for travellers from next month onwards, in a one-minute production that was said to be a year in the making – due to the animated characters being created from scratch.
“The film brings to life the wondrous possibilities one can find in Jewel, where we welcome our first pair of visitors – a pacific swallow and a ladybird, set against Jewel’s magnificent backdrop,” said Jewel head of corporate and marketing communications Joyce Tan.
“The brand film provides a sneak peek of Jewel and we look forward to creating wondrous moments for all our visitors when we open.”
Meanwhile, Ogilvy Singapore creative director Loo Yong Ping said the work “broke new ground” as it departed from the usual stuffy “traditional real estate advertising” by using animated characters.
She added: “We wanted to evoke a sense of wonder and took a leaf out of the animated playbook to create characters mirroring Jewel’s wondrous nature.”
The film will run across social media platforms including Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.
