“Oh My, Oh Wow, Oh Canada!” – Canadians React to SESQUI’s film HORIZON 360°

Close to 20,000 Canadians provided their thoughts about our film HORIZON 360° – A Visual Symphony of Canada over the course of the summer of 2017.

We knew with our early preview screenings we had a winner on our hands but we didn’t fathom how deep and how favourable a reaction there really was to be until Joe & Josephine Canadian finally saw (and some waited for 3 hours) to see our 22 minute film. The emotional and sometimes tearful joyous reaction was humbling.

Overall reactions and summing it up resonated with one of the early taglines that our agency landed on for what SESQUI represented “OH MY, OH WOW, OH CANADA!”. Here’s a cull of comments and video encapsulation of how much you truly did like us (with reciprocal gratitude):
