Drop set out to highlight the unique aspects of Lounges.tv via a film. We presented the team with three film treatments to choose from and went on to write the script for their desired video. Following dedicated planning, filming and editing, Lounges.tv’s final video effectively communicated the entire narrative of the brand and their reasons for crowdfunding.
