These days everyone is not on every social media platform and our target can be very picky about which ones they engage with. Which is why we tailored each films short and released them all, on all of the platforms.
With the Oscars, one of the biggest celebrations of storytelling, just two weeks away, Getty Images saw the opportunity to introduce their stock images into the social conversations around the illustrious event. We knew that not many people get the chance to see the Best Picture nominees each year, so we helped them catch up before the big night. And we did it be recreating each of the Best Picture nominees using only Getty’s stock images. Each of our films was just 15 seconds long, so it was primed for social sharing. From the epic frontiers of The Revenant to the crimson wastelands of The Martian, we showed that Getty’s stock images have the power to tell real human stories
