It seems a film website can be either an experience that makes people go see the film (in essence an advertisement for the film) or collection of relevant information. Anyone can pinpoint me to websites they feel have accomplished one or the other successfully?
i saw one recently that was really impressive. will try to remember
blair witch project was good at the time
the first matrix had a campaign of mystery... "what is the matrix?"
district 9 did some cool pre-promo campaign stuff
that wes anderson film had a 10 minute prequel. not a site but a good idea that made people want to see more.
The Darjeeling Limited, Prequel
weyland industries ted talk
Any more examples of ACTUAL websites??
Great film sites reflect a smart campaign. All these in this thread seem pretty solid. Unfortunately, most sites dont last too long.
Any examples that don't have mega $$$$$ behind it?
- Focus on the concept! There's always cheap ways to do most things.instrmntl
- if i keep on seeing examples of mega million productions and then one person telling me "it can be done for cheap" - it's only natural that i'm skepticalpr2
- ... that i'm skepticalpr2
- blair witch, clever, done for cheap, huge paybackprophetone
- It's all about extending the film. The BUS STOP poster above for example could have easily been an email blast.instrmntl
- Make a fake wiki? Have the characters live beyond the film. The tobias site makes him more like a real person.instrmntl
- propeht, how is $25m of Cleverfield cheap?????pr2
- depends on cheap i guess. bw grossed $250 million in the end. but it is an example that satifies the thread.prophetone
- bw did not have twitter and facebook and social universes to use to its advantage... cheaper options nowprophetone
- go all digital, be really clever about it, sprinkle magic luck-fairy dust on it and that may keep it low cost imoprophetone
- i agree w prophetoneinstrmntl
- care to share some low budget examples?pr2
- i suppose you can steer your ship toward indy and art films and see what they doprophetone
- the district 9 bus shelter aroused curiosity, and utilized a website and a 1-866 # and a call to action.prophetone
