NEWTON, MA / ACCESSWIRE / May 1, 2019 / Viewpoint Creative, a leading boutique production and branding agency, and wholly-owned subsidiary of Dolphin Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ: DLPN), and Investigation Discovery, the leader in quality true crime storytelling, worked together to develop a brand campaign to reinforce the network's place as America's #1 true crime network. Viewpoint's creative concept was to give viewers new insight to the brand, offering an aerial perspective that literally "rips the roof off" the viewer's expectations.
Using an overhead perspective throughout the entire spot along with continuous camera motion, Viewpoint linked together a variety of crime tableaus that capture the spirit and programming range of Investigation Discovery. The three-day shoot, which included two days in studio and one day of drone cinematography, yielded elements for :60,:30 and:15 second spots, a series of powerful network IDs, and content that can be distributed on the network's social platforms.
Viewpoint Director/Creative Director, Dave DiNisco, commented, "We always try to look at things from a different perspective. As we developed our strategy and did our research, we came across some early 20th century crime scene photos where police photographers used large tripods to hang the camera far above the victim. It was shocking and completely riveting. We knew this was the way to go and would set ID apart."
"The Investigation Discovery viewer experience is one that engages the mind and the heart," Doug Seybert, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Investigation Discovery explains. "ID fans enjoy the challenge of solving the mystery and relish a glimpse into the criminal mind, resulting in an emotional journey through our powerful storytelling. This campaign captures that immersive quality, giving our fans unparalleled access into the genre."
