Viacom and Movio Partnership Transforms How Film Studios Use Data to Reach Moviegoers [Updated]

Viacom and Movio Partnership Transforms How Film Studios Use Data to Reach Moviegoers

Viacom Vantage Adds Movio’s Comprehensive Audience Data To Deliver Industry’s Most Effective Movie Marketing Campaigns Across Viacom’s Media Networks

Viacom, Movio Launch Targeted Movie Studio Trailers

Viacom is partnering with data analytics firm Movio on a new marketing offering that it claims will help movie studios goose ticket sales.

Companies that are hoping to convince TV watchers and streamers to head out to the multiplexes can now better target their ad campaigns, the partners claim. Viacom has started to use Movio’s information on moviegoer’s habits to augment Vantage, its in-house data-driven tool. Since launching in 2015, Vantage has provided consumer targeting that’s analogous to what digital platforms offer advertisers, enabling them to have a deeper understanding of which types of content will perform best for specific client initiatives across Viacom brands such as MTV, Comedy Central, VH1, and Nickelodeon.

Viacom is the only media company to connect Movio’s extensive consumer data to set-top box viewing data, providing film studios with the ability to deliver marketing campaigns with more precision. The service is open to any movie studio, not just Viacom’s Paramount Pictures. In an interview, Bryson Gordon, EVP of advanced advertising at Viacom, said that the data is so refined that it allows studios to ensure that their trailers are being seen by people who bought tickets to a specific cluster of films.

“It’s ensuring that you’re getting your ad in front of the audience that can turn your major motion picture into a blockbuster,” said Gordon.

The companies joined forces after Viacom became aware that very little data exists on the consumer behavior of moviegoers. Studios have long leaned on big national television campaigns out of necessity, believing that reaches the broadest audience possible with their trailers and posters is the only way to attract the group of people most interested in seeing a film on the big screen.

“The mantra of having the right ad at the right time in the right place is very hard to accomplish in the studio category,” said Gordon.

However, as Viacom’s team struggled with that issue they stumbled across Movio, a New Zealand-based company that maintains a data set of information on more than 100 million moviegoers across different ages and demographic groups in 36 countries. It includes consumer ticketing information on more than 5,000 film titles.

“Studios tend to rely on broad assumptions about who is going to turn up to see competitive titles,” said Craig Jones, Movio’s chief commercial officer. “Because of the data we’ve been collecting over time, we have unrivaled insight into the behavior of U.S. moviegoers.”

Will Palmer, Movio’s CEO and founder, said his company hopes to partner with other media companies and integrate their data into other platforms.

“We’re really challenging ourselves to think about who the audience for a film is and how to engage them at the right time so they turn up and buy a ticket,” said Palmer.

Nickelodeon USA To Premiere 'Star Falls' On Saturday 31st March 2018 [Updated]

Nickelodeon USA will premiere the networks brand-new live-action series Star Falls on Saturday 31st March 2018 at 9:00pm ET/PT!

Update: Star Falls will air on Nickelodeon, not TeenNick as previously reported.

Update 2: Nickelodeon has digitally premiered the first two episodes of Star Falls on and on the Nick App!

Created by George Doty IV (iCarly, Victorious, Drake & Josh, Max & Shred, Scooby Doo and the Loch Ness Monster), Star Falls centers on Sophia, a strong-willed teen who persuades a Hollywood movie star and his family to live in her house while he shoots a movie in town, all with the hopes of setting him up with her mom. But the star’s three kids find their new rural life is a drastic change from the L.A. lifestyle they’re accustomed to. Everyone’s lives are hilariously turned upside down as the kids struggle to help their parents find love and adjust to what could be their new life. Nickelodeon has ordered 20 episodes for the show's first season. Star Falls was filmed in Canada by Breakthrough Entertainment during summer 2017, and will also air on YTV in Canada.

Below is Nickelodeon's official show description for Star Falls:

"Sophia lives in a quiet small town with her mom, Beth. That is until she convinces Hollywood’s biggest movie star –Craig Brooks- and his family to live in her house while he shoots his next blockbuster movie! Everyone’s lives are turned upside down under one giant roof, especially Craig's kids - Phoenix, Diamond and Bo who are used to a more glamorous life style. Diamond and Sophia are very different, but they can see there are definitely some sparks between their parents and will do anything (with the help of friends and family) to make them fall in love."

To celebrate the launch of Star Falls on 3/31, has launched the networks official Star Falls website, which features information about the series, and a super sneak-peek from the series premiere episode, "Celeb Setup". In Nick's super sneak-peek, "Lost Dog", the lost dog in town might belong to a very famous somebody!

In the series premiere, "The Celebrity Setup" (#101), when Sophia rescues the dog of Hollywood star Craig Brooks, she seizes the opportunity to set her mom up with him. When that doesn't work, she takes things a step further and has the star and his three kids move in with them!

In episode two, "The Everything Wash", when Sophia sees that Diamond gets whatever she wants whenever she wants, she hopes for the same treatment from Beth. Instead, Craig sees the error in his ways and tells Diamond she has to earn her own money.

Siena Agudong (Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn) stars as Sophia Miller, along with Kamaia Fairburn (Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B) as Diamond Brooks, Tomaso Sanelli (The Passenger) as Nate Rex, Jadiel Dowlin (Annedroids) as Phoenix Brooks and Marcus Cornwall as Bo Brooks.

Keep It Spotless features kids competing in a variety of physical and paint-filled challenges designed with one goal in mind--to stay as clean as possible. After each game, a 360 degree scanner will measure each teams’ mess to determine just how spotless they really are. The winning team will face The Gauntlet, a multiple-challenge obstacle course, where they can turn their cleanliness into cold hard cash. Keep It Spotless is produced by ITV Entertainment and Hard Nocks South Productions, based on a UK format from Possessed.

Below is Nickelodeon's official show description of Keep It Spotless:

"From Executive Producer, John Cena, comes Keep It Spotless – a brand new Nickelodeon game show where kids compete to stay clean throughout a series of very messy challenges! In each episode, teams of kids wearing ultra-white morph suits, compete in a series of physical games where they have one goal — to stay spotless! But it won’t be easy, as each round presents them with increasingly challenging paint-filled obstacles. At the end of each game, a 360-degree scanner will measure their mess and determine just how clean they really are. The team who can stay the cleanest will have the opportunity to run an exciting final course where they can win big!"

Nickelodeon released the following statement from the WWE star:

"I'm so excited to bring my own mania to Nickelodeon with Keep It Spotless," said John Cena. "It's truly been an honor to step behind the camera and create a hilarious game show with kids for kids. So get ready to see the most epic, funniest, cleanest show on television starting March 26!"

BWW Interview: Kelsey Krull Plays Pink Pilot Pup Skye in 'PAW Patrol Live! The Great Pirate Adventure'

A stroll outside of Madison Square Garden following a family-oriented show typically includes two things: lots of character-inspired costumes, and lots of smiling faces, children and adults alike. For many children who wander out with popcorn buckets and new toys, this is their first theatrical experience that has hopefully made for a memorable day for the whole family. When PAW Patrol Live! The Great Pirate Adventure makes a tour stop at the Hulu Theater this upcoming weekend, you're sure to see that same joy flooding out of the Garden. Performer Kelsey Krull from PAW Patrol Live! The Great Pirate Adventure spoke with BroadwayWorld about bringing these animated pups to life for audiences from all over.

Kelsey Krull

The Great Pirate Adventure is PAW Patrol Live!'s second touring production, first taking the stage in the fall of 2017 and plans to tour the U.S. and Canada through the end of 2018. Based on Nickelodeon's number one animated television series, PAW Patrol Live! The Great Pirate Adventure, produced by Spin Master Entertainment, features the multitalented, heroic pups - including Chase (Brandon Delsid), Rubble (Jordan Elman), and Skye (Kelsey Krull), along with Ryder (Tony Ardolino) - on a mission to find the pirate treasure before Mayor Humdinger (Matt Lamb) does.

Krull has been with the show since it began touring in September 2017. Prior to joining PAW Patrol Live!, she had heard about the animated television show from her younger cousins, with the popularity of the show reaching many children in the two-to-six age group. "Each pup has their own individual talent which is great for the kids because every kid can identify with each pup," Krull says. Kids can see themselves within these characters, with the theatrical experience bringing the at-home television experience to the stage before their eyes. Now, they get to sing, dance, and play along with the pups as they save the day. "[They] go through the journey with that pup while they're in their seats."

Krull gets to bring a fan favorite, Skye, to life every day. Skye is the pilot pup, and the only female pup on the squad. "[Skye] gets to bring a different energy to the PAW Patrol - a female presence. She's pink which is great," Krull jokes. Young audience members dress up like her, and cheer her on as she's introduced. "It's awesome when you first come out onstage to hear all the kids screaming her name. It's awesome to be able to represent a character that means so much to so many people."

The cast of

The familiarity of these characters is at the heart of PAW Patrol Live!. Kids at home see the pups every day on the screen - with their families, when they wake up in the morning, during lunchtime. These characters are a constant presence, and Krull and her fellow cast members took as much care and did as much research for their portrayals as they would any theatrical or true-to-life role. "These children know these pups inside and out. They are their best friends, they see them every day on TV and you want to represent them in the most honest way possible," Krull explains. Preparation involved watching lots of PAW Patrol, and collaborating with Nickelodeon during the rehearsal process to get these pups just right. In addition, the actors had to work on morphing into their characters via their intricately constructed costumes.

On the television show, Skye often dons aviation goggles and wings when jetting off to the rescue. She swaps wings for a pink pirate hat and white puffy shirt in The Great Pirate Adventure as the pups head off on a treasure hunt. Krull says these unique costumes are made by hand, taking thousands of hours to craft in a reimagined style of traditional bunraku puppetry, making for a look that doesn't distract from the action happening onstage. The mouths and eyes move, the pups' ears wiggle - the brightly colored, fully functional four-legged costumes animate these characters in real life. "It's a really effective image and illusion for the children - and the adults, too - that we're there helping the pups come to life," Krull says. "We're one entity with our costumes with our pups."

In this way, PAW Patrol Live! The Great Pirate Adventure is on such a scale artistically as any Broadway production, only the performers get to bring this story to a great many locations while on tour. Krull, having worked on VStar Entertainment's Sesame Street's touring productions as well, says bringing the "gift of theatre" to so many children is the reward of it all. "These children are in such a developmental stage in their lives," she says. "To be exposed to PAW Patrol Live! and other children's shows -- it's a milestone for them. And it's awesome to think that I'm a part of that."

Also, from The Jefferson Chronicle:

Homegrown in Jefferson, Township Grad is on Patrol

Get ready, people. Antonio “Tony” Ardolino is on patrol!

Yes, the Jefferson native and 2010 graduate of the township’s high school is living the dream of many a preschooler in the U.S. He will soon be part of the PAW Patrol as Ryder, the precocious kid on Nickelodeon’s successful animated program. Led by Ryder, the beloved pup patrol performs helpful missions in Adventure Bay by working as a team.

Although animated himself in person, Ardolino will portray a genuine human Ryder in a live production of the popular Nick Jr. show when it takes to the road nationally. PAW Patrol Live! launches its New York-New Jersey metropolitan area tour this week at Madison Square Garden.

But Ardolino is also fulfilling his own dreams. As a second grader living in Cozy Lake, the actor fondly remembers being inspired seeing the show Beauty and the Beast. “I loved it so much,” he says, adding that he wanted to be up on stage with the characters.

“I wanted to pursue a career in theater since that second-grade day,” Ardolino tells The Jefferson Chronicle. “The best part is that my mother and father never doubted me. They cheered me on every step of the way, and that helped me shoot for the stars.” The young actor took the advice of his parents and has landed among the stars.

Moving to Los Angeles right after high school, Ardolino studied at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, where he further honed his talent. “Even when I wasn’t on a film set or a national tour, I was still performing at Universal Studios Hollywood and Disneyland,” he notes, adding that he also performed in regional theater and opera houses around California.

“Since then, I’ve been performing all over the country, and have acted in both television and film,” he says. In addition, he tells The Chronicle, he has worked on countless commercials, including one with David Hasselhoff.

Following his California stint, Ardolino was based for two years with Universal Studios Singapore, where he had the opportunity to write and direct shows as well as travel and act throughout Asia.

Passion for Acting Rooted in the Township

But it was in his hometown of Jefferson that Ardolino became grounded in his love of acting, and where it became his passion.

“In elementary school, I was always in choir,” he says. “I remember the first time they announced who got the solo for the winter concert. It was like American Idol to me,” he quips. “When Mrs. Courtney picked me, I think she mispronounced my last name. She was like ‘Ard-…Ardo…Ardolono?’ and I stood up and said with excitement, Ardolino!”

Although he got the choir solo that year, there were no musicals until middle school – where, it might be said, Ardolino got that proverbial first big break, winning the title role of Aladdin in the Disney version of the musical. Even at a young age, he never got stage fright. “I was always excited to be on stage,” he remembers. “I was kind of a shy kid growing up. I used that time on stage to say, ‘Look at me.’”

The beginning of a career – the early days in Jefferson Township. (Photo provided by Tony Ardolino)

At Jefferson Township High School, Ardolino was involved with just about every performing arts type of activity – every level of choir, the music honor society, and the drama club.

“I also teamed up with Mrs. Latronica of child development,” he recalls, noting that she was one of his favorite teachers. Ardolino wrote an original script, made costumes, and directed teens in a show for tots. “Word spread around town fast of the cute children’s show and we were asked to bring it to Milton School and Stanlick School so those kids could see it too,” he adds.

“Like any kid who wants to be a performer, high school was a very interesting place,” Ardolino tells The Chronicle, with emphasis on the word “interesting.” He muses, “I used to make a performance out of every presentation, just to entertain the class.”

Extracurricular Acting

While living in Jefferson, Ardolino also performed outside of school every chance he got. “While other kids had baseball practice, my mom and grandma used to drive me from theater to theater, just so I got to perform,” he recalls. Among them were The All Children’s Theater, Parsippany; The Growing Stage, Netcong; The Baker Ballroom Theater, Dover; and the Brundage Park Playhouse, Randolph. But Ardolino says that his favorite place to perform was the Pax Amicus Castle Theater, Budd Lake.

“It was run by the incredible Stan Barber,” he says. “Performing at Pax Amicus was a highlight growing up. I encourage any young performer to do a show there and be inspired by Stan and the rest of the amazing people,” he adds.

“Of course, there were some people who never really ‘understood’ me and my passion to perform. But my mother and father used to say, ‘Don’t worry – every kick is a boost.’ I’ve remembered that all my life,” he notes.

Even with the kicks, there were, and still are, so many boosts. The latest, of course, is the role of Ryder. “Getting cast as Ryder in Nickelodeon’s PAW Patrol Live! is something I will never forget,” says Ardolino, noting it was his first audition upon returning from Singapore.

Experience of a Lifetime

“There were so many people for the role and I waited a long time to be seen by the casting directors. They gave me a song to sing and a monologue for the show. I then had to show off my dancing skills and hope for the best,” he tells The Chronicle.

“I remember after my audition, I wanted the part so badly, and then I began to see PAW Patrol stuff everywhere,” he recalls. His mother suggested it was a positive sign. Ardolino was in Times Square in Manhattan, heading for an audition, when he received the call from VStar/Nickelodeon. “I literally froze and couldn’t believe it! They were offering me the lead role of Ryder.”

The actor says it has been an experience of a lifetime. “Not only do I get to be in a state-of-the-art show that performs in huge arenas and gorgeous theaters, but I also get to travel all over the United States and Canada,” he says enthusiastically. “Plus, I love getting to be Ryder. I mean, to be a part of the Nick Jr. legacy is one thing, but then to originate the role in this show is another level of awesomeness.”

He adds, “I always get goosebumps when I first appear on stage and hear all the kids say, ‘Look Mommy, it’s Ryder!’ It’s literally the most amazing feeling.” Ardolino says he also loves what Ryder stands for. “He shows kids to be smart, brave, and to always lend a helping hand. Ryder and his pups mean so much to so many kids, and I am so happy to bring him to life every day,” he says.

Stepping on that stage is the hardest thing to describe, says the actor. “My heart beats like crazy right before I go on stage. But as soon as I’m in the spotlight, I am the most calm I’ve ever been,” he adds. “When I’m on stage, I feel the most like myself. I feel free, as if anything is possible. It’s the closest thing to magic I’ve ever felt.”

First-Look At Nickelodeon's 2018 Kids' Choice Awards Stage

It’s almost time for Nickelodeon's 2018 Kids' Choice Awards, which will be presented for the 31st time this Saturday night. With a performance from N.E.R.D. and presenters ranging from Channing Tatum and Kristen Bell to YouTube star Alex Wassabi, the awards will honor kids' favorites from the worlds of film, television, music, pop culture, animation and more!

Some of that will be represented on the KCAs stage, which The A.V. Club has unveiled a aweslime first look of. Packed with secrets and slime-centric moments, the stage boasts both a massive, blimp-shaped video screen and a swingset perched perilously over a slime pit. Presenters will hand out awards from amidst a foam pit stuffed with mini-blimps, and kids will line the stage’s massive staircases.

According to the show’s executive producer, Jay Schmalholz, the stage design was inspired by surprise, and will encourage both viewers and talent to “come play the Nickelodeon way.” Presenters can take a slide to the podium, which will be perched in the aforementioned blimp pool—a pool that, as Schmalholz notes, may hold some surprises.

This being the Kids’ Choice Awards stage, Schmalholz says “you never know when or where the slime is going to come from,” noting that presenters “know what they’re in for” when they sign up for the KCAs. He adds that when the KCAs team approaches the set building, “the first thing we do is figure out the plumbing and draining first, and build up from there.” With thousands of gallons of slime prepped to hit celebrities and fans over the course of the show, production can, as Schmalholz says, get more challenging.

Catch plenty more surprises at the Nickelodeon's 2018 Kids' Choice Awards, hosted by WWE superstar John Cena, airing live from the “Fabulous” Forum in Inglewood, California on Saturday March 24th at 8 P.M. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon USA and YTV in Canada, and on Nickelodeon channels around the world within hours of the live show!

Nickelodeon Orders 'Henry Danger' Season 5

Jace Norman has confirmed during a super Facebook Live interview with Extra at Universal City, California on Monday (March 19) that Nickelodeon has renewed the networks hit superhero-themed comedy series Henry Danger for a fifth season! However, the news comes bittersweet, though, as Jace adds that although he thinks the show could go on and have a sixth season, the cast and crew only have a five year contract with Nickelodeon, and that season five might be a good time to wrap up the show with a series finale. It's currently unknown whether this will affect Nickelodeon's planned Henry Danger theatrical movie. Check out Jace's super interview with Extra - in which Jace reveals that he's a big fan of the '80s and Netflix's hit show, Stranger Things and talks about his newest venture, influencer marketing agency Creator Edge Media below!:

The 17-year-old star also met a ton of fans while out at the venue and stopped to take some funny pics with all of them.

Jace, who turns 18 tomorrow, also chated about the upcoming 2018 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards this weekend, in which he is up for Favorite TV Actor (which he won last year), and Henry Danger is up for Favorite TV Show.

Henry Danger follows the adventures of Henry Hart, who, three years ago landed his part-time “dream job” as Kid Danger, superhero sidekick to Captain Man. A lot has changed since he popped his first super-bubble, but his mission still remains the same: protecting the citizens of Swellview from mad scientists and giant toddlers, all while keeping his super identity a secret! But fighting crime and finishing your homework isn’t easy. Luckily he doesn’t have to do it alone! He’s got an awesome squad to help him solve his super-powered problems. Villains, beware!

Henry Danger stars Jace Norman as “Henry Hart/Kid Danger;” Cooper Barnes as “Ray/Captain Man;” Michael D. Cohen as “Schwoz;” Riele Downs as “Charlotte;” Sean Ryan Fox as “Jasper;” and Ella Anderson as “Piper Hart”. The series is created by Nickelodeon hitmaker Dan Schneider (Game Shakers, Sam & Cat, iCarly, Victorious, Drake & Josh, The Amanda Show, All That, Kenan & Kel, Good Burger) and Dana Olsen. Henry Danger has spawned the animated spin-off series, The Adventures of Kid Danger, which first debuted as a series of shorts, which debuted July 2015 in the USA, and a full animated series, which made its world premiere in January 2018 on Nickelodeon USA, and will be rolling out internationally throughout 2018.
