Brief Explanation

Cathay Pacific unveiled their new global campaign “Life Well Travelled” with the aim to rebrand and communicate a more expansive position in the market for the airline. The aim of the campaign is to introduce Cathay’s new brand position focusing on the “imperfections of travel” and the role they play in delivering a more realistic experience – with the philosophy that if you travel well, you are better prepared for the adventure that comes. Thesethree distinctive films all relate to this single, powerful and inspiring #Lifewelltravelled campaign. Each film offers its own individual flavor of what is #lifewelltravelled, through a feast of honest scenes and images. The films feel observational; shadowing our protagonists as they negotiate their very different journeys, and coupled with the cinematic framing, the films feel intimate and unscripted. The underlying theme is this notion of contrast between the concentrated energy generated by travel, and the recharging effect of Cathay Pacific. “Family” offers a more realistic portrait of a family travelling. Filmed in Australia, we follow a real young family as they bond on holiday. We witness their genuine reactions and emotions as they travel, from hugs to tears.
