Put Your Company LOGO & Brand Name in Film

Brand & Product Placement in Film

Advertise your Product Brand & Name on Film

So how does product placement work? How much does it cost?
And what are the best examples of product placement in movies, television shows, and music videos? 

Why Is Product Placement a Thing?

While many people think of movies when they think product placement, television actually accounts for almost 71.4% of all paid placements -- and about 75% of all broadcast-network shows feature placements of some kind. Video games and pop music are other popular industries for product shout-outs.
And it's all about context. In the popular 1955 American film Rebels Without a Cause, James Dean used an Ace Comb -- and suddenly every cool teenage boy had to have one, resulting in a big increase in sales. Why? Because the comb was part of a story-line and an image that boys at the time could easily buy into.
According to a Priceonomics analysis, products placed into story-lines can be a lot more successful for brands than traditional advertisements, like TV ads. It's easier to sell a viewer on the value of a product if they're emotionally invested in the story-line in which it's presented, rather than a viewer who's watching an ad totally out of context. Plus, it's far too easy to skip ads and zone out during ads nowadays, anyway.
And it turns out product placements pretty cost-efficient in comparison to advertisements.

How Much Does It Cost?

Norma's Sun:   www.normasun.com

SYNOPSIS:

This Full Feature, Female Character and Leading Lady Driven Narrative is about the life of Norma and her family history of struggle to become the Parent of a child with needs beyond any comprehension, only to find in the end an ending that will touch your core. Born into a life of isolation and pain with the graphic burden of surgical manipulation to function, walk and survive in a world of normalcy. The iconic image inspires still today and will present a platform for an audience into a never before filmed area of life inside a family struggling to accept reason. "Never in our silent moments of illusion do we sense the dark parallel that lives beside us. Nor do we suspect the carrier."

"A Wonderful commentary on the very things that make us all human" "Brave honesty of confession, makes the book unique" "Touching story, full of hope" "Eloquent, stirring and emotional, inspirational to the courageous" The story is not only convincingly true, but will rivet the reader with its genuine and unassuming pathos.

This Adaptation is a memoir that came from the depths of one man's struggle to become a predefined member of a social mold which was never cast. A confinement that would later serve to encapsulate, isolate and establish a prototype of life not understood or sought by those watching. Blessing, punishment or choice is a position each is given and though not all will genesis into a full heart, most can adapt through perseverance. Yet you will question on how or who provided the seed to a life of strife. Further, worth following.

Los Angeles International Screenplay Awards 2017 "Norma's Sun"

Marketability:
"Potential to be strong; A Solid Concept; Unique Situation; This story will Stand Out to Audiences; Characters who Persevere"
