Project - Journalistic Brand Advocacy Television

In Bonding With Giants Tim and colleagues developed an engaging approach to marketing - Using the power of non-fiction documentary storytelling, Journalistic Brand Advocacy shows brands being used in authentic, real world contexts, with the following benefits:

World’s Best On-Location Backdrops -  Adventure Travel programs allow for products to be showcased the world’s most beautiful and pristine environments on earth and benefits are demonstrated in action and in use.

Proving Authentic Usability - Products are shown in use by both professional experts and everyday people illustrating usefulness, functionality and usability in real-life scenarios. Real impact and a commitment to the issues are the primary motivators for all partners involved though there are real opportunities for return on investment.

The team developed comprehensive strategies centered on organic integration of sponsor products across the six hours of Bonding With Giants content, as well as providing related deliverables (ranging from stock photography to short videos) for their own marketing purposes.

Examples of potential brand integration include: Subaru and Land Cruiser as vehicle sponsors. The cast might use GoPros and Garmin GPS navigators in the field and be outfitted by REI or Patagonia. Our drone photographer and DJI representative Elia Locardi, who has more than 3 million Google+ and Facebook followers will be utilizing DJI drones in the program.
