electriclimefilms collaborates with Craft Worldwide for Mastercard’s Expo 2020 Dubai spot

Mastercard ‘Expo 2020 Dubai Manifesto’

With the gates open and welcoming the world, Expo 2020 Dubai continues to share its exceptional vision of a brighter future.

With Mastercard’s focus on innovation, digital transformation, and sustainability as the official payments partner of Expo 2020 Dubai, electriclimefilms collaborated with Craft WW to showcase Mastercard’s level of advancement at the global event.

Spanning over four days, the film was shot across an array of phenomenal locations; from the breathtaking views of Ajman’s mangroves to the Expo site itself.

These locations served as beautiful backdrops while viewers followed a host of characters of all ages and nationalities.

From parents and children to grandchildren and grandparents, Pedro Tejada and Josep Pardo, our international directors from Brazil, captured the togetherness of Expo and its celebration of diversity.

Alongside onsite shooting, the innovative use of projectors and holograms at a studio, with the addition of CGI during post-production fully encapsulated the futuristic and technological feel of the Expo 2020 Dubai vision and Mastercard’s advancements.
