Renaissance Sports Teams up with Shadowlight Pictures

Partnership unites creative and production capabilities for targeted campaigns

ATLANTA -28 October 2014 – Renaissance Sports is pleased to announce the establishment of a strategic partnership with Shadowlight Pictures for the development of broadcast and digital marketing campaigns.  The agreement is an outgrowth of a recent and highly successful production for Reynolds Plantation, the expanding golf community on Lake Oconee, Georgia.

As host of the recent “Big Break Invitational” tournament –nationally broadcast on the Golf Channel – Reynolds Plantation had the opportunity to introduce their property to a nationwide audience.  Renaissance and Shadowlight combined their talents to create a promotional campaign that engaged prospective residents and drove growth in qualified leads.

“Our challenge with this project was showcasing all the exceptional factors that exist in this one location – all of the great golf, an expansive lake, The Ritz-Carlton Lodge and an active and vibrant group of residents,” said David Short, senior vice president of marketing and sales for Reynolds Plantation. “We feel that, given that challenge, Shadowlight and Renaissance Sports did a nice job in telling our story visually in a very powerful way.”  The spots for Reynold’s Plantation, including Someday is Here, can be viewed here.
