Cinema Screen Media Hires Watson Earl

Share this content:
Cinema Screen Media, a provider of digital pre-show entertainment, picked Watson Earl & Partners, New York, as its advertising agency of record.


The agency will devise marketing strategy and tactics for a new Cinema Screen Media product that customizes pre-show entertainment to the theater level in a 20-minute package. The agency appointment also results from new management at Cinema Screen Media, Atlanta.


"They're introducing a new program for in-cinema advertising, and we're going to help them reposition the company to capitalize on that," said Gary Watson, president of Watson Earl.


The new pre-show modules will mix music, movie trivia and ads.


"It'll be more of a social experience, not just trailer, ad, trailer," Watson said. "The thinking is that people will be much more willing to accept that kind of programming and, as a result, will pay more attention to advertising."


National and local advertisers, as well as media buyers in their ad agencies, will be targeted for this push. Tactics include direct mail, preparation of individual presentations to media buyers, online advertising and e-mail. Direct response ads in trade press will support the effort.


"Their audiences are very narrowly defined," Watson said. "We hope to engage them at a guerrilla level with this new marketing program."
