JRE had ambitious goals for their event’s marketing strategy, including:

Efficient content creation

Organizing a significant event with limited capacity for content creation required a platform that could help them create professional and efficient content.


JRE recorded footage of one of the JRE members, Michelin Star Chef Massimiliano Mascia and sent it to Colossyan’s team to create a professional digital avatar. The benefits included:

Custom avatar creation

JRE recorded footage of their Michelin Star Chef Massimiliano Mascia and sent it to Colossyan’s team to create a professional digital avatar.

Fast and easy video editing

Once the avatar was ready, JRE’s team could easily create the event content using Colossyan’s intuitive video platform.

Multiple language support

Colossyan supports 70+ languages and 29+ languages for voice cloning, allowing JRE to capture the chef’s Italian accent and use his voice in other languages.

By leveraging advanced AI technologies, we discovered more efficient and impactful ways to engage with our audience. The superior user interface and intuitive design of Colossyan have streamlined our journey from concept to groundbreaking, modern communication methods.”
