A Gigasavvy Holiday
Extravaganza

We set out to do something more than the typical ad agency holiday card. In true Gigasavvy style, we put our minds together to create and deliver an experience like no other that evokes emotion (in this case, pure childhood joy). We invite you to interact with our spectacular winter wonderland by using the commands below on Facebook!

Holiday-Fueled Teamwork

As the typical ad agency holiday card wars played out, an idea arose to do something much more than just a card, video, or microsite. Why not have fun creating an experience that invites our clients, partners, and friends to partake in the Gigasavvy world filled with holiday joy? ‘Tis the season!

We formed a grand vision of a winter wonderland that could be shared with anyone. Thus was born a passion project that brought together strategic planning, technology, media, and creative direction–taking up nights and weekends (not to mention it’s Q4).

Technology Behind the Magic

Lights, lights, more lights, and a 10’ inflatable teddy bear. Every decoration and each command was hand selected with care, all playing a critical role in a much larger orchestration of wintery glory.

The technology behind the interactive spectacle runs deep–from setting the live stream to rotate cameras, to building the logic that controls the decorations based on Facebook comments, to writing code that ensures the whole production keeps running.


Turning Dreams Into Reality

Looking back on previous years, sure, we had fun making a hilarious video and creating a Gigasavvy family holiday card. But there's just nothing quite like watching people enjoy something you've created. Below is a taste of how we made this happen.

  • 2,755 Light Bulbs
  • 30+ Wemo Smart Plugs
  • 213 Feet of Extension Cable
  • 1 Tiny Raspberry Pi
  • 1 Dedicated Mac Mini
  • 2 Live Streaming Cameras
  • 489 Cups of Coffee
  • 1 Amazing Team
Our Values   

Creativity

The imaginations of our team ran wild with the possibilities. Our team's creativity was the driving force behind the interactive experience we’ve crafted.

Experience

Our team's vast wealth of knowledge was a critical factor in the success of this project. We're proud to inform you that bringing our winter wonderland to your fingertips was accomplished by our internal team. (Yes, even hanging the lights!)

Passion

Clearly our team has a fiery burning passion for creating memorable experiences while expanding our horizons. If we didn’t have that passion and drive, great things like this wouldn’t happen.

Integrity

Committing to a spectacular display of holiday cheer required time, dedication, and cooperation–during the busiest quarter for client work.

Our team utilized a broad mix of tools to bring the Gigasavvy Holiday Extravaganza to life. Below are those that deserve honorable mention.
