How we did it
We knew that the key to a successful campaign would involve keeping people interested and engaged across the 3 hour delivery window. Our solution was to build a controllable Facebook Live interface, populated with a running scoreboard of teas delivered, brand related competitions and video highlights captured by our guys on the ground.
Making the edit
Interviews and deliveries were filmed on-location, whilst head and bike-mounted GoPros recorded the action as the brothers weaved their way through the streets of Leeds and London.
Video was then uploaded to HQ to be cut, edited and dropped into the live feed, giving viewers a direct insight into the activity.

Yorkshire Tea deliverbrew with the Brownlee brothers
It was the greatest tea delivery race of all time! With Jonny Brownlee in Leeds vs Alistair Brownlee in London and nearly 1000 freshly-made brews waiting to be couriered to thirsty tea fans, here's how the Yorkshire Tea deliverbrew action went down.Posted by Yorkshire Tea on Friday, 16 June 2017
Due to the nature of the Deliverbrew campaign we needed an approach which was considerably more dynamic than our previous Facebook Live videos. We achieved this by building a control panel to edit content which was then connected in real-time to the live stream using Socket.io. This allowed our director to make decisions on the fly as content became available as well as communicate directly with the audience for greater engagement.
