The Cultural – a narrative film seriesMore Info Hide Info
Insight - Objective
Development of a below-the-line concept that generates PR and positions Mini within the post-modern target group where they are lacking brand recognition. The concept is part of the overall campaign motto „Go with your Gut“ that goes along with the launch of the new Mini Clubman.
Concept - Strategy
We created a short film series called The Cultural to enhance the cultural relevance of the MINI brand. It all starts with the creation and distribution of great content and ends with the right audience who celebrates it and spreads the word. It really doesn‘t matter any longer if it‘s branded entertainment or entertainment. What matters is, if it‘s a great story.
Message + Acceptance + Reach = Content Marketing Value
Distribution, aggregation and media channeling is generated in a unique way through the people
we brought on board. MINI earned attention instead of buying it.
Output - Impact
The cultural films were featured on global top lifestyle online platforms such as Nowness, Hypebeast and Highsnobiety. The directors & actors posted the customized content (15 sec. Instagram movies, Youtube edits, Behind-The-Scene photos) on their personal social media accounts with up to 100k followers each. Well-known media publications such as Fast Company, Daily Motion and Rolling Stone featured the films and related stories. The Cultural generated 320.000.000 M Monthly Unique Visitors and 1.5 M Social Media Contacts/Likes.
