“WE ARE THE MAKERS” - CHAMELEON COLD-BREW
The Makers are the people who get it done. They said yes to the hard way when everyone else is content with “done for you”. Chameleon Cold-Brew is the drink for makers because it’s made by makers. So, we want to celebrate that spirit — and the spirit of the season — by showcasing these hardworking women and men. These short videos will consist of shots of these makers in their element, working hard as well as beautifully crafted portrait-style shots. Throughout there will be creatively placed Chameleon Cold-Brew bottles and beautiful product shots.
