The Client: Rise Costa Rica
A residential village, destination spa resort, permaculture farm, educational institute and more, Rise is breaking ground on their vision to create an interconnected community in Costa Rica.
With a diverse food forest and reforestation project, Rise has planted around 5,000 food-bearing trees of over five hundred species. An estimated 15,000 native trees have been planted as well, the first phase in a plan to reforest more than 20% of the project’s 800 acre land.
Building in compliance with the Living Building Challenge; a stringent green building protocol, Rise hopes to become a prototype for regenerative resorts and communities alike.
The Challenge: Brand Awareness
In the very early stages of Rise, when things were just getting started, we wanted to let our tribe know that something truly amazing was happening over in Costa Rica. We would create videos and photos to document the project and get people excited about what’s happening.
Viral Social Media Video Production
The Permaculture mandala garden was the perfect subject for our social media video. Capturing drone footage of the garden’s implementation, we edited the video and shared it on Facebook. A week later that video was watched more than 4.5 millions times on Facebook alone!
Photography Series: Kinkara Retreats
We designed and produced photography for the new event space in Rise called Kinkara. We wanted to capture the location and to showcase the integration with Costa Rican Wildlife.
360 Virtual Tour Experience
We created an interactive 360 virtual tour so that people can explore the project from anywhere with an internet connection. We captured drone photographs, videos and natural sounds which were recorded on site and integrated them into the tour.
