Story Experience Creators

*no campfire required Designs Tech-Forward Immersive Experiences

— August 3, 2017 — Marketing
In today's fast-paced world where we all have smartphones tethered to us, billboards and commercials are no longer enough to help brands connect with consumers. Companies are increasingly looking for new and creative ways to make their presence known, and to foster long-term engagement. *no campfire required is one company that is helping to fill this crucial gap in the marketplace with its own breed of innovative products and experiences.

*no campfire required is a Toronto-based team of self-described "Story Experience Creators" that aim to help brands connect with their audience, while also helping humans connect with communities that share their challenges and their passions. In order to achieve this goal, the *no campfire required team designs both immersive experiences and the technology behind them.

To help brands and individuals connect, *no campfire required relies on a number of unique products and services, including immersive story experiences, interactive videos, and a thrilling customizable adventure app. Called Passport AR, the adventure app is an off-the-shelf augmented reality story tool that can be tailored to a specific audience to create a memorable experience through engaging content. Passport AR allows guests to explore and participate in physical, real-world sites, while also allowing brands to collect relevant data about their guests.

Another one of the cutting-edge tools *no campfire required offers is its Passport IV. This is an interactive video platform designed to engage users by allowing them to select their own navigation path among brands’ beautiful and compelling videos, so they learn or are entertained at their own pace.

Additionally, *no campfire required offers a community building package known as Passport Engage. This service finds ways that brands can engage and provide value to their existing users for long-term loyalty. It also starts from ground zero to help companies find their target audience and to start a meaningful dialogue that fosters long-term relationships.

By creating experiences that resonate, including unforgettable, shareable moments both on- and off-line, *no campfire required helps brands build an engaged community of loyal fans who just can’t wait to be part of their next story.
