This is your country: SA Tourism promotes local travel with inspiring TV ad

As part of the Shotleft initiative that promotes a culture of local holiday travel, South African Tourism is inspiring South Africans to travel their own county with its new This is your country brand campaign. Produced by Ola! Films, the TVC brief from FCB Johannesburg looked to market travel for black people to traverse South Africa the way they would like to, enjoying activities with their friends and exploring places they wouldn't ordinarily feel comfortable to. Ola! Films director Olivia Leitch said that they were able to shoot in five of the nine provinces over ten days, coupled with vast distances and long hours spent on the road. From the Union Building in Pretoria to Krugersdorp, the team filmed quad biking, zip lining, bungee jumping, cave diving, sandboarding, game driving and skydiving to demonstrate the wealth of tourism activities on offer locally.
