Outstanding Integrated Ad Campaign

The audience for these immersive, HTML5-animated ads is primarily outdoor-lovers from the surrounding major markets within the region. These are meant to attract visitors who might be considering travel to area mountain destinations, and are designed to both capture attention while simultaneously placing the viewer—so to speak—within the scene. The movement is hoped to provide a taste of what it would be like to experience the “awe” of Boone’s natural surroundings in person. Rather than simply showing a static mountain range, we first pan across the scene asking the viewer “Got Awe? We then switch POV to show closeups of models wearing season-appropriate garb and reflective glasses or goggles. The same vista is then animated within the eyewear’s reflection to mimic the continuation of panning movement.
