Dream Network

The Campaign

Charlottesville tourism partnered with DN Media to produce a series of videos centered around the themes of:

  • Foodie/Wine 
  • Arts/Culture 
  • History/People

Brand's Problem to Solve

Since 2017, people think of Charlottesville as a place for alt-right terrorism.

Unfortunately, when you google Charlottesville, Virginia, the images of the White Nationalist protests of 2017 flood the search results.

That means all of the usual highlights, like the University of Virginia and the homes of the founding fathers James Monroe’s Highland and Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello don’t even make the scroll until three pages down. UVA and Monticello are UNESCO World Heritage Sites; and forget about learning about the wine trail, which includes Blenheim vineyards, owned by singer Dave Matthews.

Brand's Goal

Brand awareness that inspires people to visit the destination and experience the historical sites through their own eyes.
The goal is to point out the diverse array of attractions that the Charlottesville destination has to offer – history, wine, arts, etc. The call-to-action is to drive people to to learn more information about the destination to start planning their trip.

The destination used the video on their website and promoted on their social media channels. 

Here's what the brand manager had to say:

Wow! We were blown away with the over-delivery. Not only did Dayvee and team present beautiful work, but they were easy to work with and we relied on their experience for storytelling and concept. The creative video delivered was beyond our expectations.
