Our campaign will start a debate on Australian issues, create brand awareness for EastWest 101 and SBS and get the Australian audience in general to reconsider their perception of Australian crime drama.
We&#x2019;re going to find out if you&#x2019;re a racist, sexist, politically inflexible snob via East West 101 Enhanced, a training ground for new recruits.&#xA0; Enhanced is a multiplatform viral campaign that will confront your latent prejudices through Profile: a game that tests your observation, audio and memory skills whilst highlighting your preconceptions. Pass and be amongst the first to investigate the episodic East West 101 crime scene game prior to each television episode. Show your prejudices and you&#x2019;ll be sent for a ride in the Falafel Taxi &#x2013; a mobile tv studio where taxi driver Mo confronts your deepest darkest inclinations.&#xA0;
Driving traffic to East West 101, the broadcast tv show
powerhouse consumers: read, watch, earn and demand more than anyone else in Australia
&#x2022; Early adopters &#x2022; Male&#x2022; Socially Aware &#x2022; Educated &#x2022; Big Spenders &#x2022; consider themselves leaders more than followers &#x2022; first to consider new products/services &#x2022; highly informed and educated
The perfect audience for an extended experience that operates over three main platforms: Mobile Web Real world
Profile is a widget, an interactive game for mobile and the web. Mimicking the gritty tone of East West 101, Profile will conduct psychological profiling, IQ and observation tests on you to see if you&#x2019;ve got what it takes to be on Malek&#x2019;s team. &#xA0; You&#x2019;ll be presented with fast paced shakey-cam grabs from the show as well as footage from CCTV cameras - and asked to identify key information, evidence and make ethical judgements within a near zero timeframe. &#xA0;
If you&#x2019;re successful you&#x2019;ll obtain a rank within the Major Crime Squad and gain entry to the East West 101 Crime Scene game where you can investigate crime scenes prior to the broadcast of each East West 101 episode on SBS. &#xA0;
If you fail profiling, you&#x2019;ll receive a coded ticket with a phone number and an invitation to ride in Mo&#x2019;s Falafel Taxi &#x2013; a mobile tv studio. Once inside, Mo (an Akmal Salem / John Saffran type character) will inform you of your prejudice rating and engage you in well-humoured leading conversation. Your video interview will then be posted on the Falafel Taxi website.&#xA0; &#xA0; But all&#x2019;s not lost, Malek will call and invite you to resit the Profile test. &#xA0; Subsequent failures will result in further taxi rides and some heart to heart moments with Mo as you persist with your quest to be a Major Crime Squad Detective.&#xA0; However, you might pass.&#xA0; Once inside the East West 101 Crime Scene game, you&#x2019;ll be promoted or demoted depending upon your performance in each game episode. Do poorly and you&#x2019;ll end up in the Falafel Taxi. Do too well, and Mo will come and pick you up to find out what your problem is.&#xA0;
sound compelling? Our rollout...
Four weeks prior to the launch of Season 3, the &#x2018;Profile&#x2019; game and &#x2018;Falafel Taxi&#x2019; will be launched simultaneously to generate discussion and amongst the public. We feel our existing audience will be first to try out these properties and draw in a larger audience via social networking.
The User will enter the experience via the Profile game. Those successful will join the Major Crime Squad. Unsuccesful participants will be invited into the falafel taxi, where they will be either driven back onto the Profile game or onto the website.
We feel that East West 101 is and will be compared with crime shows such as Underbelly and Rush
Underbelly website - 16,000 unique visitors a month Rush website - 58, 424 unique visitors a month East West 101 currently competes successfully with Rush. We'd like to increase traffic beyond this and believe our multiplatform campaign is the way to go.
The combination of a viral campaign, garnering user participation through the profiling widget and crime scene games along with a confronting but entertaining vox pop program about prejudice will not only provide enriched content, it will grow an online community and ultimately increase the audience.
