Home Box Office plans two new online marketing campaigns: one for Six Feet
Under, the other for The Laramie Project.
Both campaigns will break Monday, Feb. 25.
The ads -- which will point out the original series' March 3 new-season
premiere -- will include animated creative, sound-enabled with the show's theme
song, according to marketing firm EarthQuake Media.
For The Laramie Project -- a documentary film detailing how residents
of that Wyoming city reacted to the murder of young gay man Matthew Shepard --
EarthQuake created special HBO microsites on the Times' Web site and IFILM.com.
The latter will feature a four-minute trailer for the film, due in primetime
March 9, while the Times' site will offer an HBO-sponsored archive to its
articles about the hate crime.
'These are exciting, high-impact, rich-media executions that we believe will
contribute measurably to awareness and tune-in' for the two HBO projects,
EarthQuake CEO Robert Davidman said in a prepared statement.
