Campaign Spotlight: Kyivstar Launch #SimplyStayHome Coronavirus Lockdown, created by Serviceplan Ukraine

Ukraine — During the period of Coronavirus quarantine, Kyivstar being a socially responsible brand has developed a communication campaign with Serviceplan Ukraine and production company Family Production to support the message #SimplyStayHome.

#SimplyStayHome Part I: 



Kyivstar is the number 1 Telecom company in Ukraine, and the campaign from Serviceplan Ukraine features 3 spots created with Family Production which encourage people to stay at home whilst letting them know that Kyivstar will help them to stay connected. The #SimplyStayHome campaign is warm and inspiring and serves as a reminder to take care of yourself and your loved ones by staying home during lockdown.

Igor Klymenko, Creative Director of Serviceplan Ukraine said: “Despite the situation, we believe that quarantine is not a hindrance for creativity, effective work and entertainment. Therefore I am so glad that our team coped with the task successfully, even in such non-trivial circumstances. With this campaign, we demonstrated to our colleagues and all Ukrainians that it is possible to do more, even if you #SimplyStayHome.”

#SimplyStayHome Part II: 


The campaign was created in two weeks and is comprised of commercials for TV and YouTube, featuring 3 touching stories revealing the lives of ordinary Ukrainian people living through quarantine. One of the spots features Ukrainian music band ‘Brunettes Shoot Blondes’, who composed the soundtrack for the spots. The #SimplyStayHome films were shot remotely and this is one of the first projects in the world to be filmed for a major brand almost completely online. The shoots were executed remotely, and the agency and client teams viewed a live stream of the shoots and gave their feedback online, with video editing and color correction done via streaming and online services.

#SimplyStayHome Part III: 


Creating a “Simply Stay At Home” social media campaign in a context of isolation was a challenge for all project participants. Of primary importance was observing lockdown and self-isolation regulations. Most of the scenes were shot remotely, including scenes from a song specially recorded in 2 days by Ukrainian group the ‘Brunettes Shoot Blondes’, in which each of the musicians performed their part separately. Representatives of Serviceplan Ukraine and Kyivstar also worked remotely to monitor events on-site. The Family Production Studio crew performed their part of the job by following all the rules: wearing masks, gloves and shoe covers while keeping a distance.

The result of the creative experiment was a series of warm, inspiring commercials that once again remind you to take care of yourself and your loved ones – simply stay home!

Serviceplan Ukraine worked with Family Production and the film was directed virtually by Anastasiya Bukovska, Executive Producer at Family Production who said: “Clients call me every day and ask, ‘Are you filming during the lockdown? How come?’ We know how to do it remotely, safely and effectively, and we have proven technology, and this video is clear proof. But our team is the most important thing to us, so we are very selective on scripts and projects.”
