Small Luxury Hotels of the World

The Challenge

Small Luxury Hotels of the World™ asked us to create an eye-catching, ‘fun’ and ‘active’ video short to promote their brand at events and public arenas. With just 24 days before the first event (ILTM Cannes, the leading ‘invitation only’ event for the global luxury travel community) our ingenuity and creativity was tested to the limit!

Our Solution

In accordance with the client’s wishes for something ‘dynamic and memorable’, we came up with the idea of combining exciting video clips with animation to create a compelling three-minute showcase for the Small Luxury Hotels of the World™ brand entitled ‘Small is Beautiful’. With an exceptionally tight deadline for delivery, we worked tirelessly, and in close collaboration with the client and freelance illustrator Lo Cole, to bring all the elements of the film together in time for day one of the ILTM event.
