Buzz Box - Campaign Collection

Intro

Camino Island by John Grisham is set on a fictitious Florida Island. We decided the best way to showcase our campaigns was to design and animate a beautiful version of the island from which entrants could explore and discover more information about the book and enter the Bay Books Heist and Grisham Beach Quiz campaigns.

The island was first sketched on paper, based on descriptions from the book and then, working closely with a specialist 3D design studio, the island rapidy took shape. With the final images, BeeLiked's team set about animating the island using HTML5 (to ensure it worked well on all devices). A seaside sound effect was added to give the island added atmosphere.

Camino Island: Bay Books Heist

Type

Points Quiz + Personalized Video

Intro

Background:

Camino Island begins with a daring heist where priceless F. Scott Fitzgerald manuscripts are stolen from secure vaults at Princeton University. The manuscripts seemingly disappear, but according to the FBI and private investigators hired by the university they are believed to be hidden in the vaults of Bay Books, a small bookstore on Camino Island, just off the Florida coast. 

The campaign goals were to raise awareness and excitement of the Camino Island novel and capture contact data for future marketing efforts.  

Imagineering

Camino Island is a very different style of Grisham novel compared to his previous work. The story revolves around the world of rare books and is written as a quick beach read.

In creating the Bay Books Heist campaign, our goal was to excite the audience about the book, whilst giving them a reason to share a message to their social networks. Creating a fictitious news report that stars each entrant seemed like a brilliant way to engage people in the story, whilst offering them something fun to share with their friends. 

The BeeLiked team developed a storyboard for the campaign over a couple of weeks in March 2017 with production beginning the following month in April. 

Design

The Bay Books Heist was built on the BeeLiked quiz software app and used an existing two column template designed to show large images for each question. The first question uses a 360 degree image of the inside of a book store (shot in a bookstore in Hackney, North London). Our design team then used Photoshop to enhance the image and add various clues. Similar techniques were used for questions two and three. 

Technology

From a technology perspective there was little additional functionality that needed adding to the BeeLiked platform. The quiz campaign and video personalization technology already form a part of the platform and the campaign could therefore added quickly.

The only additional functionality created was to enable entrants to review their photo and name before it featured in the video - the hope was this would encourage people to enter their friends and thereby increase the video's shareability. 

Personalized Video

Personalized video is a relatively new technology that allows custom elements to be introduced to a video on the fly. The difficulty is doing this at scale and at an acceptable speed (6 -10 seconds). The technology requires motion tracking within the filming, so that the video personalization software can then replace these tracked items for each entrant with personalized content, creating a unique video for every user. In the Bay Books Heist videos we personalized various elements using the entrants own name and photo. 

Our video partners in creating this wonderful film are Nemorin Creative, whom we have been delighted to collaborate with on a number of projects.

Camino Island: Grisham Beach Quiz (#Grisham30)

Cryptic Image Quiz

Intro

Camino Island is John Grisham's 30th novel. To celebrate this we thought it would be fun to challenge his millions of fans to match his novel to thirty cryptic clues. 

Creative

The BeeLiked team conceived the campaign and worked on the cryptic clues together with OpenBracket Design. We keen to ensure that clues were challenging, but that only a few required knowledge of the book, the majority being a play on the title (e.g. Racket + Ear = Racketeer). 

Technology 

The campiagn was created from scratch within three weeks. Whilst there are online examples of Cryptic Image Quizzes, the challenge was creating an user experience that worked well across all devices and encouraged users to keep coming back. The team used InvisionApp to create extensive mock ups and test the UI, before building the campaign into the BeeLiked platform. The Cryptic Image Quiz is now available on BeeLiked for other companies to create their own quizzes.
