Discover Russia

Client: The Federal Agency for Tourism of the Russian Federation

Task

Developing a creative concept and creating a cinematic social video, which invokes Russian people to choose domestic tourism.

Solution

Сreative of the video bases on a simple but understandable idea for everyone – only in travel does a person fully reveal himself. And we are not talking about beach holidays, but about active tourism. Such as staying in a tent on the sunrise beach, climbing rocks or riding on a quad bike. Complete unity with nature – this is the only way, getting to know Russia and recognizing yourself.

Filming took place in Moscow and Krasnodar Territory.
