Measurements of audience behaviour as well as numbers has become a crucial feature of advertising platforms looking to rope in the spend with billboards and televisions already paying attention to responses of its viewers. And now Val Morgan is bringing that to local cinema screens with the introduction of its CineTam Plus tool.
Since it entered the New Zealand mobile market, 2degrees has been running regular cinema advertising and offering deals like two tickets for $22 on 2degrees Day every month. And it’s continuing that trend with a new exclusive sponsorship that was brokered by Carat, features a fairly strange ad by TBWA\ about a well-moisturised, hibernating blue bear and aims to get moviegoers to turn off their phones before the flick starts.
Last year’s domestic box office haul of $177 million was the highest ever. Cinema ad spend also increased by $2 million in 2010. And there are plenty more big blockbusters like Pirates of the Caribbean 4: On Stranger Tides (3D), The Hangover Part 2, Green Lantern (3D), Cars 2 (3D) and Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon (3D) set to lure the punters—and advertisers—to the movies this year. If you want to get a taste of what’s on offer, Val Morgan is extending an invite to a special cinema presentation featuring films being released from July to December, followed by some relevant trailers and the best examples of local and global 3D cinema advertising for some inspiration.
