A Gift of Serenity

A Gift of Serenity is a spec narrative commercial we produced to showcase how stories can enhance commercials. We tell a very grounded and relatable story to help market a candle brand that is also visually enticing, and showcases the beauty of a candle, by using warm colours and cozy atmospheres. 

Being a spec commercial, we needed to keep the cost of the production low. Therefore, we scouted locations we would be able to use free of charge, for instance, the house was the director’s flat, and the office is owned by a previous client of ours, who were generous enough to let us use their space called The Workplace (here is a link if you’re interested in renting their office space: https://theworkplace.network/). We even used a neighbours house for the front door.

This was a great project to work on and we’re excited to work with the cast and crew again in the future.
