Moments, The Gift

Agency: DDB


Working closely with DDB Dubai and Abbott, electriclimefilms Dubai and Sydney teams teamed up to produce a campaign for Abbott's Ensure and create two moving films that portray a touching testament on how family and loved ones stay together, even when they can't be together. The films feature the strong relationships that parents and their children build throughout a lifetime, and the moments that keep them bonded during life's challenges and throughout adversity. By spotlighting small moments that our protagonists' families share, we find a narrative that is universally relatable and captivating, especially during these challenging times. DDB Dubai and electriclimefilms remotely produced a commercial for Abbott Ensure during the Covid-19 Lockdown. Despite having only a few days of pre-production, electriclimefilms executed the Dubai Project seamlessly, using remote production and Live Streaming on set from their Sydney production base in Australia. Though the brief called for a campaign marketed to the gulf country regions, most specifically for the Saudi Arabia market, electriclimefilms was able to execute the physical shoot seamlessly and remotely from our Sydney production base in Australia. By employing culturally relevant talent, wardrobe, art, set design, and more, we were able to achieve the film's goals without needing to shoot it on location in the MENA region, especially since Dubai was under lockdown at that point. It was most certainly an interesting challenge to be able to achieve a culturally authentic portrayal, all the way from another continent.

This professional campaign titled 'Moments, The Gift' was published in United Arab Emirates in July, 2020. It was created for the brand: Ensure, by ad agency: DDB. This Film medium campaign is related to the Health and Soft Drinks industries and contains 2 media assets. It was submitted over 3 years ago by electriclime° of electriclime°.
