REC Promo Video

Photographer: Jessica Song
The REC17 promotional video was shot on a single camera, with the help of my REC Creative Team and a crew of first-year Ryerson media students. This is a project that faced multiple challenges in terms of coordinating schedules, working within tight budgets, booking equipment and studios, and gathering the skill sets required to pull off a professional, full-scale production. 

The fundamental creative goal for this project was to produce a video that doesn't feel like a student project. This video was planned to be shown at the REC launch event, and serves as the first real exposure to the conference's visual rebrand. . 


Within a week of its Facebook launch on January 19, 2017, the video reached 4.9k views. The video has contributed significantly to the overall #REC17 launch campaign, with a 1290% increase in engagement during its first week and a 68% overall growth in followers.
