Don’t just take, give: Fujifilm Instax Partners with influencers to spread the Joy of Giving

The company launches a social film to spread happiness and capture the moment of love and care.

Fujifilm India Private Limited, a pioneer in imaging technologies, today unveiled an influencer led campaign, in line with its global branding for INSTAX range of cameras. The campaign focuses not just on brand awareness, but the importance of creating shareable memories that can be printed and given to others.

The essence of the film perfectly captures how ‘Giving’ is often underrated, and how many don’t realise that being giving will not only strengthen their relationships but also their sense of satisfaction in life. Survival of the fittest is usually coupled with selfishness i.e. ‘Taking’, meaning that if one looks out for only themselves, then they’ll have the best chance of survival. However, as more and more humans are spending time being confined to their homes, mankind have instinctively grown to become social and caring. During the on-going pandemic, research has suggested that giving to others, rather than having more and more for yourself, brings about lasting wellbeing. Science has shown that giving is the foundation of basic human connection. This means that even our future success as a species, our ability to thrive and grow, is also completely dependent upon it.

The tagline, “Don’t just take, give”, is a direct nod to the thoughtfulness and generosity around sharing INSTAX prints as demonstrations of joy, posterity and shared experiences. The campaign will be executed via social media and consumer engagement initiatives. The INSTAX line of instant cameras, which lets users create beautiful instant prints on the spot, has sold over 45 million units in more than 100 countries – with 10 million units sold in fiscal year 2019. INSTAX is the category leader with a strong franchise among Gen Z and millennial consumers.

With this film, Fujifilm aims to spread positivity across negatively filtered social mediums, and spread the joy of memories with their Instax range of cameras. The film features some prominent influencers such as the singer and songstress Lisa Mishra, lifestyle and wellness motivators, Rohina Anand Khira and Rina Charaniya Hural, along with fashion bloggers Shivali Oswal and Shreyashi Debnath, among others.

Don't just take, give Make a living by what you get. Make a life by what you give. Don't just take, give. Thank you so...
