Proof of Concept Video for Promotional Social Campaign for “Polaroid” Movie
In August 2017, Bob Weinstein hired me as a Digital Strategy Consultant to promote the release of Polaroid, a horror about a girl who finds a vintage camera that kills. The project was to offset market perception of a typical plot, integrate influential voices and the public in a media experience, and motivate a large audience of teens to see the film in theaters.
When the company’s film releases halted, this project was suspended indefinitely. Since I was not able to actualize my concept for Dimension Films, I independently created a proof of concept piece to showcase what one of these videos might have looked like. This is a spec video in a series that would have been posted to Urban Outfitters’ Instagram.
