Comic strip

  1. 1. COMIC STRIP : COPY CONCEPT :PRECUSSOR :Not many people know Sara or Laila in Dubai . It would need a certainamount of exposure of the two girls to have people remember them and then co relate itto the comic strip. In light of this , the least expensive way to raise awareness and buildmomentum would be to do a pre cursor run wherein the two girls are revealed in a fun ,exciting way .The precursor also works as a teaser and can be extended to hoardings ,bus wraps, metro station posters , fast food outlet posters , radio spots etc.TEASER 1: This shows Sara at home , in her room , holding up a letter , lookingexcited, jumping up and down , saying “ Laila ‘s coming! Laila’s coming !! 10 more daysto go . The advantage of this tactic is also yo can determine how many of these to dodepending on budget . The next one could easily be , 9 more days or 5 more days tillLaila comes to Dubai .TEASER 2: Sara in a different setting , maybe in school , with a bunch of her friends ,saying “ Laila’s coming ! 5 more days !!”TEASER 3: Sara in her night clothes getting ready to sleep, hugging herself, saying “Tomorrow!! Toorrow !! Laila will be here tomorrow !!”LAUNCH : LAILA COMES TO DUBAISara[at the airport]: Welcome to Dubai Laila.Laila: Hi !!! Here I am at last !! I am so excited to be here.

We save water because it is so precious. No wasting .Laila : yes and no carrying buckets like home either !![They come out to the terminal, see the trolleys , climb on and sara pushes Laila , whothrows back her head and laughs in delight .SIGN OFF : Oasis = water = life _______________________________________________Laila: oh look , it is raining !! I never knew it could rain in the desert !! oooohhhhh!Sara: sure it rains here sometimes.Laila: so why is it still a desert?Sara: a desert is a desert , like a mountain is a mountain.Laila tries to catch the raindrops , Sara joins in .Laila: We catch all the rain and save it up
