  2. 2. PlayStation Move Pop-Up Store Recap Produced by Ray Dennis The Project I produced one of four pop-up stores to launch Sony’s Playstation Move motion control product on a freelance basis. The purpose of this experiential marketing activation was to provide PS Move demos to moms, teens and families on 36 PS3s that were mounted on kiosks throughout the event space. My pop-up was located on the 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica, CA in a retail space that was previously a Restoration Hardware store and my team consistently surpassed all of our stated goals and objectives.
