Launch Campaign for Alphas, the new scripted series on Syfy. The show is about seemingly normal people with extraordinary abilities solving impossible crimes.
No spandex, no capes.
The marketing exploits the internet fascination with real people doing extraordinary things - and poses the question, are they talented - or are they Alphas?
The fully maltiplatform campaign includes TV, outdoor and online.
To accompany the trailer campaign, we've 'created' a series of virals and seeded them on line. Shot and treated to look like 'found footage,' these drive viewers to alphapowers.com where they can send in their own amazing videos. We've also repurposed stunts shot for the show to look like virals, further blurring the line between the show and 'reality'.
8 from the 10 or so 'found footage' virals were seeded to drive viewers to alphapowers.com
This spot was cut from out takes from the show-which we then cut and treated to look like a viral.
