ABOUT THE PROJECT

The long-awaited Windows 10 came out in July 2015. In order to promote the new operating system, Microsoft launched the big «Do Great Things» advertising campaign about people who make a difference.

The Russian office of Microsoft contracted us to localize and launch a similar campaign promoting the new Windows in Russia.

We proposed to organize a competition in social networks and to tell real stories of the people who make the world better every day with Windows.

Tasks

  • Видеоролики
    #video

    To film 6 videos based on the participants’ stories

  • Конкурс
    #COMPETITION

    To collect participants’ posts from social networks Facebook, Instagram, Vkontakte using the hashtag #Imdoing

  • Сайт
    #WEBSITE

    To create a promo website for the advertising campaign and the «I’m doing» comp

  • And so we began to complete three tasks simultaneously.

And so we began to complete three tasks simultaneously.

SEARCHING
FOR THE IDEAL CHARACTERS

To find characters for the first four videos, we studied the target audience of the campaign and identified the most attractive character types: creative figures, extreme athletes, students and gamers.

They are:

Anton Gusev
Young scientist from the Institute of Electrophysics, Ural Branch of the RAS, Yekaterinburg
Dmitriy Belenets
Industrial climber, Moscow
Konstantin Rakhmanov
Organizer of the «Stenograffia» festival, Yekaterinburg
Dmitriy Bakanovich
Head of the «Geek-TV» portal, Moscow
We worked out their stories together, then went on to writing scenarios and preparing the clips' storyboards.

SHOOTING

Together with our heroes we spent extraordinary shooting days in Moscow and our home city of Yekaterinburg.

Then we edited and cut the footage into four cool videos.

ABOUT THE CONTEST

In the meantime we also worked on the contest. The contestants had to post their stories about what they do and how they use Windows 10 on social networks (Facebook, Vkontakte, Instagram) using the hashtag #Imdoing.

We used the service we had developed beforehand to collect datafrom social networks by a given hashtag to find these posts. We can set this service up for any website in one or two days. By the way, we made a video about how the service works and what it is needed for.

WEBSITE

Meanwhile, we created the website where we placed the contest terms, the video instructions for the participants and the inspiring videos with our heroes.

The website has simple, clear design that does not distract viewers from the main message — the stories of the participants.

Client’s testimonial

Guys from JetStyle quickly found the solution to a complex task; we didn't want to just copy the overseas compaign, we wanted complete localization, arousing interest in the Russian audience so that everyone sees how we can change the world for the better with Windows.

The entire project was delivered just as planned, we launched the website and the contest on time, all the videos were produced strictly on schedule and the promotion was executed properly as well.
