  • Viral Marketing Villiers Park: Contemporary British Film
  • Viral Marketing Originally, viral marketing referred to word of mouth advertising... one person tells all their friends, who in turn tell all their friends, and so on. In practice, this rarely worked out well. With the development of the Internet, suddenly more viable... You don't have to know your consumer personally to reach them with a blog, video, or web page. Word of mouth can reach 100s, perhaps 1000s, the moment someone hits the post button, it’s instant.
  • Good Viral Marketing Ideally, a viral ad does not seem like an ad at all... The most successful viral marketing technique is to make something entertaining that people will want to share.. Making something people want to share and giving them easy access to do so, helps make campaigns successful.

  • 2007, JJ Abrahams announced the website for his new film project.. ‘1-18-08.com’ featuring photos of party guests, destroyed boats missing posters and mysterious remains of some kind of creature.
  • Next, a website for fictional Japanese drinks company, ‘Slusho’, owned by Tagruato Corp. ‘Slusho’ also appears in US TV drama, Alias; another JJ Abrahams production. The company that main character, Rob Hawkins is leaving New York to work for. Website mentions discovering a “deep sea ingredient”.. starting to build a hype about has caused the events in the upcoming film.
  • News Reports are leaked on the internet following an attack on their drilling rig, just off the coast of New York. Footage shows, debris flying out of the water as workers flee... ...something supernatural?? News reports start to give a visual tease that starts to build a possible background story for the film. Director, Matt Reeves when asked about the marketing campaign said... “The Internet sort of stories and connections and clues are, in a way, a prism and they're another way of looking at the same thing. To us, it's just another exciting aspect of the storytelling”
  • Interactive Content Marketing for british film ‘Shifty” (2008) was criticised for its use of Viral Marketing.. Website allowed you to “Stitch Up A Mate”, sending them an email to imply they are being investigated for drug use Advertising Standards Agency banned the campaign ruling that “Stitch Up A Mate” was “distressing and irresponsible” as it was not made clear that it was a prank and was an advertising material.
  • Teaser Trailer Villiers Park: Contemporary British Film
  • What is a teaser trailer? A “Teaser Trailer” or “Teaser” is a short trailer advertising an upcoming film. Unlike typical trailers, Teasers are very short (between 30-60 seconds) Usually contain very little, if any, actual footage from the film. Often released in cinema trails and online a long time in advance of the film, sometimes over a year.
  • How do they work? Less to tell the audience of any content of a film, but to let them know something/it’s coming. Lack of information/content entices the audience into wanting to know more... “teasing” them. Often a simple, original and inventive idea is the key...
  • Star Trek
  • The Hills Have Eyes 2
