Compass Group:

Even if you have never heard of Compass Group, chances are they have touched your life at some point. Compass Group is the global leader in contract foodservice and hospitality serving millions. They serve award-winning restaurants, corporate cafes, hospitals, schools, arenas, museums, and more.

We partnered with our friends at the Plaid Penguin to create story driven videos that would showcase some of the success stories of Compass Group employees. The videos were intended as a recruitment tool for their website. We worked with Plaid Penguin to ensure that the look and feel of the videos, matched the branding aesthetic that was being designed for the website.

It was important to bring realism and authenticity to each individual story.  This approach enabled viewers, and potential employees, to connect with some of the hard working folks and present all of the opportunities Compass affords to those wanting to grow in their careers.  

Principle filming was done over 3 days at various locations and facilities around Charlotte, NC. Because these were real stories, all interviews and b-roll were shot at working locations with real people.
