the challenge | the solution

Create an engaging film showcasing the 'Lantern' hotel and the USPs of the South of Sri Lanka in a narrative form. The purpose is to attract the new age traveler that enjoys a tailor made vacation with adventure and the opportunity to explore. The film will be televised, and used for a digital campaign on social media platforms. We built a story around the memoirs of a traveler, resembling the target demographic. The film captures the intimate element of the hotel, the landscape, location and the cultural activities. This short film entitled 'Memoirs' for the Lantern Boutique Hotel in the South of Sri Lanka captures the elegance of the hotel and the surrounding scenery. The film gives the viewer an idea of the delights both Sri Lanka and Lantern have to offer.
