The Challenge

DAP Products Inc., is a leader in sealants, adhesives and insulating foam products. So it was no surprise when the company developed a new insulating foam unlike anything else on the market. The challenge arose when True Digital Communications was asked to create a promotional video to build excitement before DRAFTSTOP 812 Stop ‘n’ Store foam launched. The problem? The product didn’t exist yet. It was still in production and no cans were available for filming.
