Travel Oregon is taking a different approach to tourism by animating and slightly exaggerating its finest features.

In its spring campaign by Wieden+Kennedy Portland, the Oregon Tourism Commission uses technicolor animation to evoke a magical feeling of being in the state. The ‘Only Slightly Exaggerated’ campaign is a cinematic take on Oregon’s outdoor adventures and natural features, of which there are many.

The 90-second film takes us from a tranquil stream where frogs read newspapers to Trillium Lake below towering Mt. Hood, where families play. It winds through the tulip beds of Woodburn with a giant bunny to a drop of rain falling on a vineyard, instantly producing juicy vines of grapes, then to the coast and majestic Haystack Rock before lighting up the depths of Crater Lake and venturing north to Portland, the high desert and rafting with giant salmon.

The film features an original score by the Oregon symphony. For inspiration, animators traveled the state to experience natural splendor and geographic distinction
