Airbnb recently launched it’s global video campaign – Making the world magically smaller.
Have you ever experienced how traveling makes the world feel smaller, connecting you to people and places more than ever before? Airbnb, the world’s leading community driven hospitality company has recreated this feeling by taking the viewer on a train ride full of surprises in its newest film.
The film is as real and unique as a stay in one of Airbnb’s global listings: It was shot in one take and without any computer generated imagery. 30 people spent five weeks building the 85 square meter train set at the heart of the production. More than 2400 craftsmen hours were spent creating a landscape out of 20 square metres of plywood, 12 litres of glue and more than 160 sheets of poly board. All with one goal: to help a wider audience understand Airbnb. “As you board the train in this film, you’re transported into a magical world that represents the very heart of Airbnb,” said Jonathan Mildenhall, Airbnb’s CMO.
“As you wind your way through some of the amazing listings Airbnb has to offer, you get a different perspective on the world. With each viewing, you see something unique and interesting that you didn’t notice before, mirroring the experience that many people have when they travel with Airbnb,” he said.
