As part of a marketing strategy for the release of the Season 2 DVD box set, we partnered with Brightcove to create a fan contest. The premise of the contest was to have the fans create their own Masters of Horror trailers for a chance to win DVDs and other prizes. Utilizing Brightcove's Aftermix product, an online based non-linear video editing platform, we were able to provide fans with stills, video clips, graphics and sound effects and allowed them to submit their trailers online for the contest. We then distributed the winning trailers online and on our YouTube page, furthering the marketing effort.
