To celebrate Amsterdam Pride and the year 2019, the municipality of Amsterdam asked us to create two social videos.
Concept Amsterdam Smiles
For the Amsterdam Pride we want to bring a tribute to our inclusive city. Gemeente Amsterdam is proud of the annual Pride, and rightly so. The diversity and inclusiveness among Amsterdam residents and visitors make everybody happy. No wonder our city literally smiles: looking from above, draw two eyes in the river IJ and see the canals are smiling back at you. 🙂
We took this fun insight as the basis of the video and showed the positive vibes of the diverse city.
The 60 second vertical video (social proof) consists of quick edits of very different people enjoying Amsterdam. From fierce draq queens and kissing LHBTIQ couples to playing kids.
It may be clear: we are proud. And it’s not just the video we’re proud of: in terms of results, the amount of organic reach was tremendous. Also, the video got a lot of free publicity in local and industry media alike.
Amsterdam Lacht. Fijne Pride allemaal!
Teken twee ogen in het IJ en zie dat de grachten lachen.
Zoveel liefde voor onze stad. We wensen iedereen een prachtige Pride.
Concept Amsterdam Dances
2019 left us with a year filled with highlights and some challenging moments. The Ajax championship, the ban on mopeds on most of Amsterdam’s cycle paths and new construction projects.
The majority of the year gave us (Amsterdammers) enough reason to be happy. How we expressed this happiness? Through dance. We shared an authentic image of the city through the eyes of dancing people. Using Amsterdam as a stage where everyone can dance in their own way.
We wensen iedereen een swingend en gelukkig 2020 in 020!
Tel van 10 terug naar 1 en start de muziek.
Dansend luiden we 2020 in.
