The brief

Playdale Playgrounds is a Cumbria-based playground equipment manufacturer. Following the success of a Digital Catalyst placement in the business to tackle a digital transformation project, Autodesk briefed Grammatik to document the success of this by creating a video and PDF case study.

The video would be designed to cover the project challenge, solution and result of a Digital Catalyst placement and appeal both to appeal to students, and to businesses who were considering participation in the scheme.

The strategy

Grammatik organised a COVID safe 1-day film shoot at the PlayDale premises, created a shoot treatment, scouted locations, prepared interviewees and devised a series of soundbites to ensure the edit would be able to present the story well.

With the video edit going through an open collaborative review and approval process, we were able to capture enough information and soundbites to create the written article and have it formatted to fit Autodesk brand guidelines.

Having interviewed stakeholders from Playdale Playgrounds and the Digital Catalyst student for the video shoot, we were well versed in the detail of the project and could craft the customer case from this knowledge.
