The Ridley Scott Associates produced documentary SPRINGSTEEN & I incorporated the efforts of more than 2,000 fans around the world who submitted personal video clips to make the ultimate collective filmmaking experience about how Bruce Springsteen and his music became the soundtrack to so many lives.
Extending the “for-the-fans, by-the-fans” aspect of the film, the SPRINGSTEEN & I online campaign helped mobilize a globally distributed fan-base in support of the release, gaining traction across vital communities of interest and social channels.
As part of the launch announcement, Springsteen fans were invited to post pictures of themselves with their #1stAlbum to Twitter or Instagram, for the chance to appear on the film’s official poster. Over 350 fans were featured on the final artwork, and were able to find themselves on an interactive version.
Springstream was a real-time visualization of all things Springsteen as they were happening on the social web, aggregating mentions from Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and Vine, and included a “Relive the Tour” feature allowing you to play back gigs from his European tour through the eyes and emotions of the arena audience.
Closer to release, the opportunity for two cities around the world to host exclusive advance screenings of the film was announced, with fans able to vote on Twitter or Facebook using the #LuckyTowns hashtag. As a result of thousands of votes from over one hundred cities, Philadelphia and Barcelona were declared the winners.
