This video was created for a college workshop on sugar, exercise, and grocery shopping. In addition to using tradition fliers and email announcements, a video was produced to reach a wider audience. The video was embedded in the email that was sent out campus wide advertising the workshop. Common questions such as “Does shopping count as exercise?” and “How much sugar is in your drink?” were presented in the video. Video advertisement is a great tool to provide information in a format that traditional methods lack.
