What was the Challenge / Background of the Campaign?
20th Century Fox set us a challenge-to sell back catalogue film on Blu-ray. With over 600 releases on Blu-ray/DVD each month, how do you persuade consumers to purchase movies and upgrade to Blu-ray, given they already own the film in DVD format? Future's entertainment and tech portfolio reaches a mass Blu-ray hardware audience of 1.6m, who list film as one of their primary passions. Total Film's audience alone is responsible for 15% of all Blu-ray purchases in the UK. The Future portfolio offers a highly efficient means to reach a mass audience with minimal wastage.
