Scotland at Night - VisitScotland
|Title:||Scotland at Night|
|Entrant Company:||Whitespace - An Isobar Company|
|Agency Network:||Dentsu International|
|Creative Director:||Neil D Walker|
|Copywriter:||Jamie Ross and Neil D Walker|
|Account Director:||Claire Stephenson|
|Other:||Executive Creative Director - Chris Davey|
|Notes:||While no one could travel due to Covid, VisitScotland needed to remind people that even in dark times, the dramatic beauty of Scotland is still there. As one of the most photographed destinations in the world, we wanted to do it in a completely new way. We created the first tourism film shot in complete darkness using specially modified drones, a 12,000-Watt lamp, smoke and no CGI.
This film was purposely scored and crafted to evoke an emotional feeling of lament and longing to normality - a normality that WILL return.
As a mysterious 'wisp' guides the viewer, illuminating the natural beauty and iconic structures of Scotland, the score builds and flows in perfect harmony with the wonderful aesthetic and beautiful simplicity of the edit.
The film which gained widespread admiration and showed that Scotland is truly beautiful, even in total darkness.
