Campaign Video Content

The Beauty of Douglas County

To ensure our campaign was able to convey our messaging most effectively, a key objective was to create and film several videos on location around Douglas County. Reminding residents of the stunning visual beauty of the county was vital to reiterate to them how important their way of life is, and to not take it for granted by getting out to vote! These videos were used in digital ads (YouTube, Google Network) as well as social media.
