Assignment: Ford and JWT Team Detroit enlisted Filmaka and its community to write and shoot “Mustang Stories,” short films conceived by the filmmaker – to stream on the newly-launched Ford Mustang website, www.the2010mustang.com Case Study: Ford Motor Company Filmaka and its community had six weeks from the time the competition was conceived to write, shoot, and deliver the films. “Ford is always looking for innovative ways to connect with our customers. We wanted to see how filmmakers interpreted our “Mustang Stories” contest and are delighted to be able to reach an even wider audience through the new “Knight Rider” TV series, which stars our Shelby GT 500KR Mustang.” – Caroline Pernot, Ford car communications
Result: Filmaka received 400 scripts in only two weeks from filmmakers in 28 countries on six continents. After Ford/JWT/Filmaka reviewed scripts and Filmaka vetted the directors, 22 films were shot in just two weeks in U.S., Canada Mexico, Norway, South Africa, and UK. Case Study: Ford Motor Company Ford and JWT then selected ten winners. Millions of television viewers saw the first five filmmakers introduce a one minute preview of their films on NBC. Seven films are currently streaming in their entirety, exclusively on www.the2010mustang.com. Ford and JWT will hire the Grand Prize Winner, to be announced in November 2008, to direct a second film (with a significantly higher budget) for the 2010 Mustang launch.
Case Study: Ford Motor Company "We’re extremely pleased with the creative ways Filmaka’s community of filmmakers used the Ford Mustang as inspiration for their stories. The films are interesting, fun and offer plenty of surprises – just like Mustang.” - Caroline Pernot, Ford Car Communications “JWT Team Detroit and its clients employ branded entertainment initiatives as part of an integrated marketing strategy. In this case, we felt that branded entertainment, in the form of short films, was the perfect vehicle for filmmakers from around the world to bring their “Mustang Stories” to life. Ford and JWT Team Detroit enhanced this branded entertainment idea by creating and airing commercials in NBC’s Knight Rider that integrated footage from the short films and drove viewers to see the entire film on Ford’s newly launched the2010mustang.com. We were very impressed with Filmaka and its communities ability to complete this project quickly with outstanding results.” - Carl Spresser, Director of Integrated Marketing and Branded Entertainment, JWT Team Detroit
