Sausage Writes & Directs Interactive Yahoo! Mobile Campaign

8 years ago33 views

To showcase its latest mobile apps, Yahoo! is taking interactivity to a new level by installing giant phone kiosks in high-profile movie theaters. For this unique engagement, Yahoo! tapped kaboom productions’ directing duo sausage (aka john benson and ward evans) in a dual capacity to write and shoot content for the bigger-than-life phones.

Each phone has a 40-inch touch-screen that plays a series of videos featuring apps including Yahoo! News, Yahoo! Mail, Yahoo! Fantasy Football, and Yahoo! Search. Viewers can interact with the screen to toggle between videos and learn more about the apps. Creating content for this new media posed a number of challenges: In addition to being fun and eye-catching, each piece had to be telegraphic enough to work without audio, and be able to play in a 9:16 vertical format (a 16:9 wide-screen rotated 90º).
