Merry Christmas from Happy Hour!

Posted in: Animation, DRTV, Feature Films, TV Adverts, Video Marketing

Merry Christmas from Happy Hour! Well it’s certainly been a busy 2016 here at Happy Hour. From fake snowmen to feature films, stuffed toys to stop-motion animation we’ve done it all. We’ve worked with long-term clients and welcomed brand new ones too. We’ve launched the first ever commercial campaigns for brands new to TV advertising, and we’ve even picked up a few awards along the way!

Here’s a quick snapshot of some of this year’s work…

This is just some of the work we’ve completed this year, have a flick through the blog to see behind the scenes on some of the productions and find out what else we’ve been up to.

Remember, if you like what you see and would like to find out more about how our animation and video production services can help boost your brand do get in touch.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Let it all hang out with SunLife’s latest social media video

Posted in: Video Marketing

Over the years we have collaborated with our long-term friends at SunLife on everything from TV commercial campaigns to various social media video campaigns but this latest video brief was certainly memorable.

To continue their ‘Life begins at 50….’ campaign they wanted a fun, humorous social media video which showcases how when you reach a certain age you’re not worried about what people think anymore, giving you freedom to ‘let it all hang out’. The campaign is aimed at the same audience as our previous Game of Funerals videos and this particular video is just a different way for the brand to say thank you to it’s loyal customers and followers.

The festive shoot took place last month and all production and post-production was completed in-house by Happy Hour. The video is being used on SunLife’s Facebook page where it has already amused their followers and been shared many times. 

This video was directed by Jason Edwards, produced by Tiffany Donnelly and the Director of Photography was Robin Horn.

Quirky social media videos are a great way to engage your followers and boost brand awareness as a video like this encourages sharing. It’s also a great way to start experimenting with video marketing before taking the plunge into TV advertising.
