    uniE608 Hello Chef - Bring It Home - Social Media Campaign Video
    This is a social media campaign series commercial for Hello Chef, a service that simplifies cooking by delivering fresh pre-portioned ingredients and delicious recipes that one can cook in around 30 minutes. The “product concept” & “how it works” were already communicated in the previous marketing campaign. Despite that the brand still had an awareness issue. The objective for the new campaign became: boost brand awareness by using emotion to focus on the product experience. We have written scripts for a series of 3 videos that compliment each other story-wise, conveying a message that cooking at home with Hello Chef is fun, and that it creates a "wave". The campaign proved to be successful, changing the image of the brand for the better and bringing new subscribers. This video that combines all 3 stories has gained 0.5M engagements on YouTube https://www.twine.net/signin and has been featured on Facebook and instagram. This project includes pre-production concept planning, screenwriting, casting, directing, multiple set filming with lighting setup, creating custom score music, editing, color grading, sound design, delivering versions and subtitles for social platforms. Script: Maksim Varfolomeev, Olga Avramenko. Campaign strategy: Osama Hamed. Director, DOP: Maksim Varfolomeev. Editor: Olga Avramenko. Music: Maksim Ryabikov. Postproduction: Maksim Varfolomeev.
