Hollywood Goes Immersive: Creating Next Level Experiences for Entertainment Marketing
Studios are now using haunted attractions and immersive productions to promote their films or big-budget programs, and fans are loving it. Meet three professionals behind some of the most elaborate activations ever conceived for marketing efforts, as they discuss why studios are investing so much in experiential attractions, and how they create environments that allow guests to step into the worlds of their favorite horror and fantasy films, and TV shows.
On stage will be Christie Decker, Executive Vice President of Operations for Experiential, with GranDesign, who created the walk-through Neibolt House for It; David Wally, Chief Creative Officer and Co-Founder at Mycotoo, Inc., the Talent Director and Show Supervisor of HBO’s Westworld Experience at South by Southwest 2018, and the Blade Runner 2049 Experience at Comic-Con International; and Josh Randall, creator of the internationally-recognized immersive experience, BLACKOUT, who has also created attractions for Universal Pictures, Blumhouse Productions, Focus Features, and Crypt TV, including the recent The Strangers Experience.
