Rise Festival 2019
Rise Festival is the ultimate pre Christmas party in the mountains. Located in the beautiful village of Les 2 Alpes in France, Rise offers ski and music lovers the chance to party on top of the world.
Whether you love to ski or not, Rise is a winter party for everyone; even if you have never been to the snowy mountains before. Morning yoga sessions, afternoon brunches and Husky walking, alongwith evening wine and cheese tastings, complement the already fantastic festival schedule put on by the Rise team. Guests can enjoy full days on the slopes, with amazing themed parties at Apres, before heading to both the outdoor and indoor arenas for the headline acts in the evening.
Rise had both immediate media requirements, which were to be delivered during the festival week, and deliverables to be processed after our return to the UK.
We were required to deliver a daily highlights album at the end of each day, consisting of 100 key photos. Rise would then use these on social media and their stories. We also delivered 3 edits within the week; showcasing the best bits of skiing, adventure and party. Please see links below.
Once we returned to the UK, we processed the full daily albums and delivered so Rise could post on social media and use to promote next years sales.
From a video perspective, 3 key edits were to be delivered on our return to the UK. The first was an aftermovie teaser, and the second was a full aftermovie delivered shortly after. These videos were going to be used primarily on social media.
The third major edit is something slightly different, and new to the usual post-production requirements for Rise. This will be a 7-10 minute epic, narrative driven film, focusing on the people’s experience of the festival. It will be an organic representation of the festival week, showcasing everything that went on and the people who took part. This will be used mainly on the Rise website and is a form of recognition to all those Rise customers; new and old.
What we did
How we created the content
For Rise 2019 DGTL managed the entire Media Team. We had a team of 8 in total consisting of Photographers, Videographers, our Director and our Producer. Rise were keen to put the emphasis on adventure and party this year; of course, the skiing still needed to be a main feature, but Rise wanted to showcase everything else the festival and location had to offer.
We needed to ensure we captured the key headline acts as well as the essence of the festival; adventure, winter escape, celebrating with friends, the apres and of course, the on-slope action. With bad weather closing the slopes for 2 full days, it was all hands on deck when the lifts finally re-opened. We also only had one bluebird day and this was the day when the majority of the on-slope content had to be captured.
What was the final result?
We produced a highlights video immediately following the festival; please see the video above. The epic follow up video will be released in the coming weeks. We look forward to returning to Les 2 Alpes in 2020 for more adventures in the mountains.
