MIRRORED MEDIA HONORED WITH 2016 SUMMIT INTERNATIONAL CREATIVE AWARD
Out of more than 5,000 submissions from 21 countries, Mirrored Media was named a winner during the 2016 Summit Creative Awards for their expertise in engagement and experiential marketing for one of their latest campaigns, The Magicians Premiere tour with Syfy.
Mirrored Media was tapped to promote Syfy’s upcoming original series, The Magicians. Syfy needed to create a promotional campaign that would cut through the entertainment clutter and reach the show’s target audience – Millennials.
Mirrored Media hit on key millennial passion points like music, social experiences, and events by partnering with Syfy, Warner Bros. Records and Fullscreen to embark on a five market college tour to promote The Magicians. Each tour stop was hosted by a different popular social media personality and featured an advance screening of the first episode, a live acoustic performance by millennial musician Bebe Rexha, cast appearances, branded concessions and shareable social activations.
By partnering with Bebe Rexha, the campaign was able to reach authentic music fans. The partnership married the two brands together by debuting Bebe’s new, never before heard single “No Broken Hearts” in a Magicians trailer. Bebe promoted the tour prior to and during on all of her social platforms, including behind the scenes footage, and shared The Magicians trailer. Bebe Rexha ended the night with performances of her biggest hits, which resulted in attendees chronicling the tour and sharing their experiences to social media platforms.
Mirrored Media also got social with millennials by tapping into social media influencers. Five different personalities shared custom created content across their social platforms to promote The Magicians. Each influencer hosted a different stop, introducing The Magicians episode and Bebe, and used Snapchat to feature footage from the event; encouraging fans that weren’t able to attend to watch the pre-linear episode before the premiere.
In addition to Bebe Rexha and influencers promoting the tour, Mirrored Media and Syfy teamed up with NBC affiliate networks, local press and promoters in each market as well as college groups to drive attendees to each tour stop.

Just hours before their season 3 premiere on Sunday, the cast of Summer Break stopped by the AT&T store in Santa Monica to meet a few hundred of their biggest fans in Los Angeles. Mirrored Media worked with Fullscreen to host the event, from setting up the store to creating memorable activations for everyone who waited all morning to meet their favorite cast members.
Once the event began, the Summer Break cast gifted 15 lucky fans with autographed gold Beats Pills as well as the first selfies and hugs. Fans afterwards were also surprised with gift boxes of t-shirts, hats, beanies, and sweatbands, as well as visits from a few stars from Summer Break 2. During the meet and greet, the Summer Break cast led groups to a nearby ice cream truck, where they helped to pick out themed ice cream and snow cone flavors for their fans. Not an hour went by without a crazy surprise around the corner!
Summer Break‘s social team was present to take great pictures of the event. Special thanks to AT&T and Fullscreen for organizing the most interactive meet and greets we have ever seen.
Fullscreen made waves in the digital space at this year’s VidCon! While creating opportunities for fans to connect with social media superstars, it also partnered with major film studios to create a personal movie night experience.
Mirrored Media worked with Fullscreen to throw a Movie Night for all three days of VidCon. Over 1000 fans lined up early every night in our AT&T Blue Room to take pictures with YouTube stars and grab free swag courtesy of Epix, Showtime, and HBO. As soon as the doors opened to the screening room, fans rushed in and were greeted by beanbag chairs, popcorn, and endless cups of Dr. Pepper Cherry, making for the perfect evening out with friends!
During Thursday’s Movie Night, YouTube all-stars Dylan Dauzat and Andrea Russett stopped by Movie Night to pump up fans with the trailer debut of Electra Woman & Dyna Girl as well as the first film of the weekend, Pixels in 3D.
On Friday night, Movie Night attendees rumbled around in VR chairs and Oculus Rift headsets for a virtual reality experience before heading into the screening of Insurgent. Fans were also paid visits from Brittani Louise Taylor, Acacia Brinley, and the cast members of Summer Break, who all also presented sneak peeks of upcoming films The Outfield and Mockingjay Part 2.
On Saturday night, fans walked into an exclusive screening of M. Night Shyamalan’s new movie The Visit, which is out to the rest of the public on September 11th. On this final Movie Night, Bratz assembled a themed photobooth so that fans could create photo strips with their friends to remember the end of an jam-packed VidCon weekend. Once everyone gathered in the screening room, the attendees were also surprised with guest stars such as Jus Reign, Luke Korns, and The Fine Bros.
We are excited that Fullscreen Movie Nights was a huge hit!

Mirrored Media teamed up with Fullscreen to work on the release for Universal Picture’s upcoming Halloween horror hit, Ouija. The campaign consisted of a series of YouTube based videos in which Kian Lawley (known as part of YouTube supergroup Our Second Life) took part in a Ouija seance and disappeared. Mirrored Media partnered with Fullscreen to help create and execute the story and landscape for Kian’s finding in Chicago, fan management and engagement, and the meet and greets that followed.
On October 5, 2014, a video titled “KIANS MISSING” (with over 1.8 million views to date) was posted to Lawley’s YouTube channel at its 2+ million subscribers. It begins with the on-screen words “Kian Lawley went missing during the filming of this video,” and asks viewers to use the hashtag #OuijaWhereIsKian if they know anything about Lawley’s whereabouts.
On October 8th, Dillon and Caylen traveled to Chicago where together, the two tracked Kian down to a haunted house. Over 1500 fans joined them at the haunted house, designed by mastermind Rob Zombie, to help find Kian. Three lucky volunteers joined Caylen and Dillion within the house to speak with the spirits through a traditional Ouija seance. During the seance, the spirits spoke through the Ouija board and told the kids that Kian was within the house. After thanking their fans, the boys set out throughout the house and found missing Kian.
The entire marketing campaign successfully generated over 17.3 million hashtag impressions for #OuijaWhereIsKian. The video of finding Kian has been seen almost 1 million times. Fans on-site in Chicago had the opportunity to meet the talent, walk throughout he haunted house where Kian was found, and take home a custom Ouija branded photo-booth photo inclusive of Kians ghost.
