Central Asia Campaign
‘The Last Frontier’
Region: Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan
USAID Competitiveness, Trade, and Jobs Project in Central Asia, implemented by DAI
Stakeholders in Central Asian Tourism share a personal message: They want to show adventure- and travel-hungry people their beloved country. In a very personal address (video in selfie-style), they express a rousing pre-scripted invitation, which leads to 5 landing pages with inspirational travel stories and a call to action.
Under our expert guidance, the 10 stakeholders ﬁlmed a semi-scripted 30 second scripted message. In total we created 10 x 4 languages (NL, EN, DE, ES) = 40 videos. Plus two campaigns on Instagram and Facebook.
