Describe the objective of the promotion.
Develop a consumer promotion for the UFA Palast movie theatres promoting Saw 3D.

Describe how the promotion developed from concept to implementation.
What would be a better setting for a horror-movie-promotion than a dimly-lit parking garage? More precisely: the UFA-Palast’s parking garage. While a different movie is being shown in the movie theatre, the promotion team attached wobblers depicting Jigsaw’s face to cars - always in sight of the rearview camera. When the moviegoers were about to leave and reverse their cars, a scary image could be seen on the screen: Jigsaw’s bizarre and scary grimace. After the first shock and astounded looks behind the car, the surprised moviegoers found the announcement to the release of Saw 3D – on the wobblers’ back side.

Explain why the method of promotion was most relevant to the product or service.
Thanks to state-of-the-art 3D technology, the final Saw movie is closer to the audience than ever before. So we wanted to give the target audience a little foretaste of the most real horror movie of all time.

Describe the success of the promotion with both client and consumer including some quantifiable results.
The wobbler became a much sought-after souvenir with the moviegoers. And in the UFA theatres Saw 3D had the most successful opening week of all seven Saw movies.
