MARRIOTT HOTELS Stay Brilliant with Sébastien Chabal

ABOUT THIS PROJECT

The new campaign ‘Stay Brilliant’ is for Marriott Hotels to celebrate as the Official Sponsor of the Cathay Pacific/ HSBC Rugby Sevens and Hong Kong Sevens Festival, the city’s biggest sporting event and one of the flagship tournaments on the international Rugby Sevens calendar.

‘Stay Brilliant’, launched on social media with ‘Bonjour.’ This film takes place in a Marriott Hotel guestroom, where rugby legend, Sébastian Chabal has a comedic entrance whilst test piloting a new innovation created just for Sevens fans – a tongue-and-cheek new wake-up program aptly named ‘Bonjour’.

The cinematic wizardry is decidedly low-tech and the action feeling basic and raw, adding to the humour. The film techniques and special effects are achieved by in-camera means, left deliberately rough and unpolished.
