Plum Media has been awarded multiple awards for a social media video produced for Snap-on Tools to celebrate the new year. It has been awarded a Gold AVA Award, as well as Gold in the Hermes Creative Awards.

The goal of this award winning social media video was to be posted right at midnight on New Year’s Eve. As the clock struck twelve, one of the trucks would leave the scene changing 2018 into 2019 from a view of 150 feet in the air. It was a great collaboration between Plum Media and Snap-on Tools.

“It took a lot of planning to orchestrate 18 people, 2 drones, 8 cameras and 30 Snap-on trucks into a giant 2018/2019," said Gary Cline, Producer/Director of the project for Plum Media. "The result was one of their top performing social media videos of the year. You’d be surprised how much work it took to make sure each truck was perfectly aligned.”


Special thanks to the team at LDV, Inc. for providing the facility and helping coordinate the endeavor.
