Movie going has always been a favorite pastime for enjoyment by all ages. As the years and technology moved on, the big theaters morphed into multiplexes and movies became a source to get a captive audience to view big screen commercials before their chosen feature.
Now Audience Entertainment has created a way to make the dreaded ads into exciting interactive games for movie goers to participate in as they wait for the big picture to begin.
Audience Entertainment makes viewers part of the screen action.
Years ago folks would sit for an entire day taking pleasure in watching double features with no ads and enjoying cartoon shorts as part of the fun movie going experience. The sound of talking over advertisements have replaced the fun cartoons leaving people stressed out as they sit in anticipation for the movie to begin.
Advertisers have taken notice and are now using their ads as a way to engage the audience in interactive fun and competition. Traditional ads will be changed to ads with an interactive component to them when this technology goes broad in the theaters.
- Through fun movement in their chairs, like moving left or right or waving arms, the new ads will allow the audience to determine the outcome of the ad.
Major advertisers, and their participants, have enjoyed successful case studies.
As theaters await to implement the new technology, case studies have proven that the audience is excited to literally become part of the entertainment experience.
