In 2013 Proficient City received Facebook’s Best Advertising and Staff Favorite awards for their outstanding advertising campaigns. This year the company has once again been granted these prestigious honors. Their exceptional performance prompted Facebook to visit the Proficient City head office to do a two-day video shoot documenting the highly beneficial partnership between these two companies. This video will act as a case study for future advertisers.
In the afternoon of August 4th the Facebook APAC Marketing Team brought their crew of cameramen to the head office and proceeded to conduct a comprehensive introduction of the shooting process to Proficient City staff. They determined the ideal locations for interviews and other shots, carried out a series of rehearsals and finally finished the day with a live preview.
