  3. Seoul Searching Synopsis Seoul Searching is an English language, romantic teen comedy directed by award-winning Korean-American filmmaker Benson Lee. The movie is based on the director’s own experience in 1986 when he attended a special cultural camp in Seoul, Korea, where he met other Korean teens from around the world. The story focuses on three Korean boys from the U.S., Mexico and Germany and the three girls they meet in the summer of 1986 who change their lives forever. The movie stars some of the hottest Asian actors from around the globe. We believe the timing of our movie’s release is perfect because Korean pop culture has reached a zeitgeist of popularity and exposure around the globe.Based on this as well as the quality and diversity of our movie, we are confident that Seoul Searching will be released theatrically to a global market. The questions are: “How do we do this?” and “Who do we do it with?” We are inviting Samsung camera to join us as partners in a ground-breaking campaign that will explore social media in ways that no movie has ever done, from now all the way to Seoul Searching’s premiere at a prestigious international film festival and its debut in movie theaters.

  4. The Seoul Searching Signature and Samsung Camera Social media and crowdsourcing has transformed the way movies are funded, audiences are given access and communities are built to support them. We believe this journey will be beneficial to both us and Samsung because we are creating and sharing compelling content that will draw a significant following. QUALITY & PROFESSIONALISM • Samsung cameras have been capturing the entire process of making a contemporary movie. They have a role in the creative process and are associated with high-quality, professional filmmaking • Campaign shows we have been committed to the products as well as demonstrates that they are more than capable of shooting beautiful footage and pass the test of being on a movie set BRAND EXPOSURE • Through our campaign, Samsung will get enormous global coverage and media exposure through the success of the film at festivals • Not many people understand behind-the-scenes moviemaking but are curious about it; by watching our series, Samsung cameras will receive significant long-term exposure to new eyes over the exciting course of an entire journey EVOLUTION • Samsung cameras have captured the evolution of a film over the entire lifespan of the project • Will capture not only the success of the film, but has already played an organic, integral role in it at every stage. We have shot many hours of footage from pre-production to shooting to editing THEMES • From dream to reality, script to screen → Seoul Searching is a passion project created out of organic hard work that is exciting, engaging and entertaining • Connection between cameras and movie shows the labor and love that goes into creating something out of nothing from script to screen; shows the power of the NX cameras to capture all stages of filmmaking SEOUL SEARCHING’S SIGNATURE • Seoul Searching is a signature film for people who love innovative, personal films.

  11. Behind-the-Scenes of Seoul Searching Signature Series Beginning in the fall of 2013, we started filming the making of/behind-the-scenes of Seoul Searching with Samsung cameras. It is a rarely-seen, personal view of what it really takes to make a movie from script to screen. Our goals are the following: • Release a weekly series of 2-3 minute YouTube episodes providing a fun, honest, intimate insight into moviemaking • The series will be posted leading up to the film’s premiere at a major film festival to build buzz and engage an audience who will become invested in the journey of our movie • Topics highlighted in the series include: • In-depth interviews with cast and crew • Creative processes of screenwriting, art direction, costume, make-up • Process of funding the film • Personal production updates by Benson Lee the director as he makes progress with the movie from script, production, editing, and the film festival • Each episode can start and end with a Samsung Camera logo of choice

  12. The Seoul Searching Social Media Reporter An exciting, effective way to engage any online community is by holding a worldwide contest. Samsung camera can sponsor a global contest held on the Seoul Searching Facebook page where a lucky winner can become our official social media reporter.

  14. Facebook Engagement through Polls and Questionnaires Polls and contests are a proven effective way to engage our online community in a way that has a thematic connection to our movie. Our goal is to creatively brand our sponsors’ products through the following: • Polls and questionnaires every week covering such topics as “What is the greatest teen movie?”; “What is your favorite 80’s song?”; “Who is your favorite teen actor?” • From now until premiere at a film festival we will hold various polls, questionnaires and contests on the “Seoul Searching” Facebook page to promote interactivity and communication with our community • Utilize Samsung hashtags to archive posts and direct people to Samsung pages, products and other content • Encourage poll participation with giveaways and prizes such as a new Samsung camera or mobile phone • Empower and interest the user by giving them tidbits of exclusive content that keeps them coming back while continually targeting our audience group
