FOSTER CITY, Calif., April 24, 2013
FOSTER CITY, Calif., April 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sony Computer
Entertainment America LLC (SCEA) today announced that it has awarded MOFILM as
its agency of record for crowdsourced advertising.
"We have been incredibly impressed with the creativity and quality of work
that the MOFILM community has produced while working with us over the past
year," said Guy Longworth, SVP, PlayStation Brand Marketing at SCEA. "As
PlayStation moves into its next phase of growth, we look forward to continuing
our work with MOFILM as our agency of record for crowdsourced advertising."
SCEA worked with MOFILM to engage its community of 50,000 filmmakers for two
widely popular campaigns over the past year. To support the launch of
LittleBigPlanet™ Karting in the United States, independent filmmakers
submitted potential national TV advertisements for the game. PlayStation fans
helped select the winning video, which received more than 325,000 views on
YouTube, and aired on hit shows such as South Park, The Simpsons and Tosh.O.
In working with SCEA in Latin America, MOFILM challenged its community of
filmmakers around the world to develop inspiring videos that captured SCEA's
"Live in a State of Play" campaign for PlayStation. The proposal received
overwhelming interest, with more than 100 video submissions and more than one
million views of the winning film in the first seven days.
