Title of Entry: “Eau Du Soleil – Interactive Video”
Location: Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Category: 212. Videography

Empire Communities is one of Canada’s largest integrated master-planned community homebuilders. Of course, before something is developed, you have to market it.

Pureblink out of Toronto created a video to showcase Empire’s Eau Du Soleil that overlooks Lake Ontario and the Toronto skyline with the emphasis placed on the condominiums’ expansive terraces. Since the property was not yet built, Pureblink needed to come up with a way to show potential purchasers what their lifestyle would be like living at Eau Du Soleil and the benefits of buying a suite with a terrace, as well the different views. The result is a stunning interactive masterpiece that combines beautiful cinematography, dynamic directing, and clever editing.

Title of Entry: “Deadpool Gets All the Likes”
Category: 224c. Social Media Campaign

When Deadpool hit the movie theaters earlier this year, it shattered box office records. When it was to be released to the home audience, the question to Fox Home Entertainment was how to maintain that momentum.

The movie is an action-packed, irreverent and humorous adaption of a comic book series. What made the movie successful on the screen was put into play for the promotion.

Tapping into social media, Fox sold the Digital HD and Blu-ray release through clever trailers, face-changing graphics and social interaction starring, of course, Ryan Reynolds. With 200 million social impressions and an extensive organic media coverage, Deadpool is Fox’s best performing HD title.
