Investing in Brighter Futures

Toast were asked by leading advertising agency mr.h to produce a short but powerful corporate communications film on behalf of the National Autistic Society.

The video entitled 'Investing in Brighter Futures' is all about the great work that the NAS, in partnership with the Bankers Benevolent Fund, are providing to families from the banking community who are living with autism.

The corporate video was produced with two clear objectives in mind.

To introduce the NAS and the BBF partnership and how they have set up the 'Investing in Brighter Futures' programme to help provide long lasting support to families from the banking community.

And secondly, the film acts as a stand alone piece of communication that will convey to families living with autism that there is a range of practical and emotional support on hand should they ever need it.

The finished film is a touching expose that features revealing, candid interviews from parents who are bringing up autistic children and how they're lives have improved considerably thanks to the 'Investing in Brighter Futures' programme.

Going Underground.

Last year Toast TV produced a number of digital airport panel executions for BAA through leading advertising and communications agency Masius.

BAA tried its hand in the wonderful world of digital outdoor advertising by commissioning a number of retail focussed campaigns to play out across the network of digital airport panels operated by JC Decaux

The plasma screens are positioned strategically to cover the entire departing audience in any given terminal at any or all of BAA's airports, and JC Decaux reckons that the screens are viewed an average of 6 times per flight per person.

This year BAA have also decided to go 'Underground' and have asked Masius to create a new moving image campaign to raise awareness about their latest 'special rates' for airport parking.

The high def escalator panels are part of the CBS Outdoor portfolio, who claim that the screens offer advertisers a targeted message to potentially millions of commuters every day.

The digital outdoor arena is ideal for this style of reactive marketing, where clients like BAA can continually adjust their campaigns to take into account new market trends, pricing structures and services....without breaking the bank.

The Outdoor Advertising Association ( OAA ) recently commented that the outdoor digital screens rate of revenue growth is now outperforming that of online, making outdoor screens the fastest growing medium in the UK.
