Launching a new brand and range of beers.

The problem

Saltaire Brewery is a much-loved Yorkshire brand, with international acclaim and delicious beer, so we were honoured to help them launch their brand refresh. Accompanying the new look, we also helped launch four new beers.


Our solution

The film brings beer fans along on Saltaire’s journey. We recorded the voiceover on location at the Brewery with the Saltaire team to give the film a personal, authentic touch. Our team spent three days filming capturing all the magic that goes into a Saltaire beer. The film was released over Saltaire’s social media channels during their nationwide launch events, giving customers a chance to hear the story behind the update.

Brewing up intrigue.

In the run-up to the launch, we also produced a fast-paced 10-second teaser. The challenge was to build intrigue, without giving away too much. With fast-cuts and quick text graphics, it caught the audiences’ eye as they scrolled through their social media. We optimised the film for social with square and 16:9 versions. The animation went down a storm, brewing intrigue with over 2,300 views in the two weeks running up to the launch.


Honest beer with character.

It was brilliant working with you. We all really appreciated you pulling out the stops to make these films happen. Thank you so much!
