In 2019 the film company Andreevsky Flag made a documentary about the Far Eastern Leopards. It won several festival awards, but it was difficult for such kind of film to reach a wider audience. Films of this genre are not the best for distribution in cinemas. Anton Melnik, the producer of the film, came to us with a request: "We want to upload the film, make it free for watching and get as many views as possible".

RAN A TARGETED ADVERTISING CAMPAIGN ON INSTAGRAM AND VKONTAKTE
We wrote key messages for each audience and tested different types of creatives: we offered to watch the whole movie at once, showed video teasers or illustrations with a link to the website. All visitors to the site and those who watched the teasers were additionally warmed up by retargeting.

As a result, all the audiences worked well. This confirmed our hypothesis: we correctly identified who would be interested in the film and created effective ads.
