A short video (3-mins) for social media. Watch the full video here.
Deep Sea Fishery Kingdom is a seafood trading company supplying quality frozen seafood products to local & international seafood distributors.
Customers can also buy seafood online from their website - malaysiaseafood.com
Our client wants to increase their brand awareness and at the same time promote their new product - Big Seafood in a Small Box, in conjunction with the upcoming Mooncake Festival celebration.
They wanted a video that could stir viewers' emotions and has a touch of humour to it, to fit the interests of their target audience.
The intended audience of this video would be:
Big Seafood in a Small Box is a ready-made frozen seafood that customers can easily prepare with a microwave. The seafood comes in a variety of choices, including:
Based on our research and understanding of the client's requirements, we finalized the video concept as below:
Through the exaggerated interaction between parents and children, it brings out the parents' love for their children, and the children's desire to meet their parents' expectations. But everyone is unique – what one likes is closely related to one's life background, age, and education.
In this story, we highlight the cultural differences between the two generations and how family members should be more understanding and considerate to each other. We should open up our hearts and accept everyone around us.
With the combination of talents and story plot, we try to position the company as a brand that cares about their consumers.
The talents' performance themselves would give off a ridiculous yet personal "comedy" effect, which makes the story dramatic for more internet views.
We came up with the slogan for the video:
- meaning "I care about whatever you like" (sounds better in Chinese though).
Video language: Chinese
Video subtitles: English & Chinese
With the video concept in place, we developed the storyline summary and presented to the client in a second meeting.
And voila! Client is happy with the summary, but their main concern would be, can our talents pull it off?
Hence, our next step is writing the screenplay, because talents would need to know their lines before they decide whether they want to take up an acting job or not.
