YouTube Creator Spotlight

In a bid to increase consumption of local content, the YouTube team in Hong Kong and Taiwan asked for a series of trailers that placed the spotlight on up and coming YouTube Creators. Instead of just using existing footage, we managed to engage these busy bees to craft original content to give synergy and flow to the trailers. The videos pivoted on themes relevant to the target market with creative direction and narrative given to the Creators.

 Market and season-specific themes like summer heat, graduation songs and parents’ day were conceptualised to help Creators form unique content for the trailers.

These Masthead creatives alone reached over 260 million YouTube viewers and increased interest in local content with 3.2 million views in the short period of time they were broadcasted.

 A key strategy to increase numbers here was to encourage crossover fan interest. As the Creators were unable to get together to collaborate, creative solutions were employed to give each video a seamless narrative and a sense of harmony. This included having Creators introduce each other in their videos as well as using a visual twist that emphasised togetherness within the Creator community.
