MOVIE PROMOS AND EDITORIALIZED INTERSTITIALS

With the SYFY rebrand to be more focused on fandom, they transformed the primetime movie watching experience into one that celebrates some of the genre's most beloved properties. Interstitials during some of the marquee movies were used to express the brand voice as well as give fans a voice themselves--including putting fan made short films on-air.

SHAUN OF THE DEAD

PROMO & FAN SHORTS

For Shaun of the Dead, we partnered with Tongal to have fans submit custom short films created as a tribute to what they loved about the movie. These were used on-air as well as on social platforms for promotion.

CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND

PROMO & FAN INTERVIEWS

For Close Encounters of the Third Kind, SYFY hosted a special screening at one of the key locations in the film, Devil's Tower. There, real fans came for a special outdoor viewing where they told us all about their love for the film and took part in a mashed potato sculpting contest. A longform piece was created for digital, with shorter cutdowns being used as wraps throughout the night on-air in addition to interstitials with the network's voice.

The promo for the night is on the left, and four of the interstitials are below.

Blade Runner

PROMO & TRIVIA

To honor it's important to the genre, SYFY aired a double feature of Blade Runner and Blade Runner: The Final Cut. During this airing, our interstitials focused on little known facts about the movie as well as the differences between the two versions.

THE PRINCESS BRIDE

PROMO & BRAND EXPRESSION

One of the most quotable comedies ever, The Princess Bride is a movie that many people know by heart, and even if they've never seen it, they probably know some lines from it. These interstitials celebrated that and are a clear example of SYFY's fan-centric brand expression.

ARMAGEDDON

PROMO & BRAND EXPRESSION

Similar to Shaun of the Dead above, we partnered with Tongal to have fans submit short films celebrating what they love about Armageddon. They were used on social as promotion and aired during the movie as well.
