    Background: There are around 91,000 sporting clubs in Germany alone. The range of sports vary from well-known to not so well-known sports in German-speaking countries in Europe e.g. Fußball to Eisstockschießen and Tanzsport. The climate, local terrain and culture can impact on the types of sports played in different regions e.g. klettern, surfen (not what you might think), Armbrustschützen.


    Scenario and Task: Clubs are always looking for new members. As part of a campaign to increase membership of a specific club, your advertising company has been asked to produce a 15 to 40 second promotional video to attract new members to the club under the banner: Treibt Sport!
