What LOVEFiLM does so ingeniously is make the process of renting DVDs so engaging that you can’t but help develop a greater interest in film.
London, United Kingdom (PRWEB) March 10, 2006
LOVEFiLM, the UK’s largest online DVD rental service has struck a strategic deal with Momentum Pictures which sees LOVEFiLM’s famous DVD envelopes re-branded with key art from Momentum’s latest DVD release release ' Lord of War '.
The envelopes, which are used to dispatch over 750,000 DVDs per month, will be used to advertise the DVD release of ' Lord of War ' out March 6th. Kristin Ryan, Senior Product Manager at Momentum Pictures said, ‘With the large number of films being released these days, we wanted to find a way to truly stand out from the crowd and get in front of a targeted film consuming audience that purchases DVDs at a rate well above the UK average. Our artwork stimulates interest in the title, as well as giving a direct call to action for DVD purchase.’
Chris Bird, Marketing Manager of LOVEFiLM Marketing Services added, ‘ Lord of War ’ is a great fit for the LOVEFiLM customer base, and the envelope re-brand looks fantastic. Given that they also serve as DVD rental return envelopes, they remain in a household for 2 weeks on average, giving them many more opportunities to be seen than in conventional print advertising. This marks a new era of consumer marketing for us, and for the film industry as a whole’
