‘Seeing the light’ - Interview with Producer Regner Grasten. Movie Marketing Case Study: Kidnapped.
Updated: Jan 20
Earlier this year we had the pleasure of collaborating with producer Regner Grasten on the campaign for the Danish family movie Kidnapning. This was a challenging movie marketing campaign, with a complex set up and a lot of moving parts- including creating original content for advertising and an influencer marketing campaign.
We met up with Regner to ask him a few questions about his experience with this title and how it has informed his approach for future releases.
It’s not often that we have a chance to work so closely with the producers of the movies we market- and so early on- so this was surely an enlightening experience for the team as much as it has been one for our client.
At Gruvi we advocate for marketing across the user journey and across multiple stages in the life cycle of a movie. We think it’s a necessary approach to movie marketing in today’s social media dominated landscape. We detail this, as well as strategies for specific online channels, in our ebook- Winning Your Audiences– available as a free download.
