Netflix launches marketing campaign for Academy Awards















MUMBAI: Online movie rental service Netflix has launched a promotional campaign, in cooperation with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (Amapas).


The aim is to promote tune-in to the 79th Academy Awards telecast while entertaining movie fans at Netflix‘s site. In India the Oscars will air on Star Movies on 26 February.

 

Rooted in this year‘s Academy Award‘s promotional theme, which highlights some of cinema‘s most unforgettable movie lines, the multi-platform effort will utilise online, broadcast, viral and print vehicles to give consumers a chance to learn more about the great movies behind the memorable Oscar quotes.

 

The promotion will feature a series of efforts, including specially created editorial content at netflix.com and oscar.com. The program will also gain momentum through a national movie quotes survey, communication on Netflix‘s iconic red mailers, a national radio promotion and a viral video programme.


The Oscar-themed messaging on Netflix‘s home and awards pages includes tune-in information featuring this year‘s Academy Awards key artwork. The site will showcase Netflix‘s library of Academy Award-winning films, and is designed to be a fun and interactive way for consumers to learn more about the movies they love. Oscar.com will in turn feature Netflix in relation to the quotes campaign. Visitors to the Oscar site will be given the opportunity to link to netflix.com to learn more about their movies of interest.


Netflix will also conduct a survey of its members to find out the most memorable and quotable movie lines from 2006. The Netflix viral video programme will capture recognizable personalities, and everyday people, performing their version of memorable movie lines from Gone with the Wind, The Wizard of Oz, The Godfather, A Few Good Men and Jerry Maguire.


The footage will be posted on a video wall which can be accessed at www.netflix.com/oscars beginning on 12 February 2007. Consumers can also post their own video, showcasing quotes from the above mentioned movies, on the site. The first 500 participants will be rewarded with a one-month membership to Netflix. Netflix will also link from this dedicated page to oscar.com where pertinent information about this year‘s telecast will be featured.


Netflix chief marketing officer Leslie Kilgore says, "The Academy Awards are the Super Bowl of the movie business, and we‘re extremely pleased to collaborate with the Academy to promote the Oscars and to highlight many of the best loved and best remembered moments in film history.


"The multi-dimensional nature of the campaign will allow us to reach a wide audience and really engage people in an entertaining way."
