The client and the brief
My Paper Vault is a will writing and will storage facility, who also provide the option to store other important life documents for their clients too. That way you can rest easy, knowing that your documents are safe and easy to access when needed. When they first got in touch with us, My Paper Vault wanted to create a TV commercial to raise brand awareness and to publicise the services they offered to a wider audience. The TV commercial had to include a number of key messages but the joy of the My Paper Vault offering is that it’s really simple.
After speaking to the client and with a brief in place, we got started on the creative approach of this TV commercial. Due to the nature of their services, we chose an emotive/sentimental approach for the video, setting the scene with a mother and daughter who sat together using the My Paper Vault services. We had to infer that the mother had sadly passed away and that the important documents she had stored with My Paper Vault, were now easily accessible by her daughter. To help illustrate this and without showing anything specific, we decided that we would feature a pearl necklace on the mother that we could then show being worn by the daughter, at the end of the TV commercial.
Our production team shot the commercial on an Arri Amira camera at a home in Surrey, used as the shoot location. With a voiceover script to accompany the visuals and to deliver the key messages, we cast two actors in the non speaking roles of the mother and daughter. Once the visuals were in place and the voiceover recorded, we laid all the elements together with a piece of thoughtful piano music to produce the final commercial. You can see some BTS of our crew and the shoot below! 🎥
