"Friend Request" Nationwide Marketing Campaign
(Thurs 9/14) Saturday marks the final stage of a nationwide feature marketing campaign I've been contracted to manage. This was a tight turnaround project that allowed me to flex some muscles I don't get to use all the time.
We're hosting photo booths at college campuses/football games, and venues across the country that will put you in an active GIF with the monster from the film Friend Request. The film premieres Friday, September 22.
Official Film Synopsis: Popular college student Laura (Alycia Debnam-Carey) has tons of friends, both on Facebook and IRL. She graciously accepts social outcast Marina’s (Liesl Ahlers) online friend request, until Marina crosses the line and Laura unfriends her. To everyone’s shock, Marina takes her own life in a ritual meant to torment Laura, which appears in a video posted on Laura’s profile. Even though it wasn’t Laura who posted the video, or other creepy content that begins appearing on her page, her Facebook friend count begins to dwindle as a result. When her real-life friends start dying mysterious, cruel deaths, Laura must figure out how to break the deadly curse before it’s too late.
Talent includes: Alycia Debnam-Carey from “Fear the Walking Dead”, William Moseley from “Royals”, Connor Paolo from “Gossip Girl” & “Revenge”
