Megastar production and global media prep

The Megastar productions he will direct will involve Megastar’s celebrity judge and mentor Usher, hosts SketchShe and a selection of performers representing various Megastar talent categories. Usher has been instrumental in the development of the treatments in his capacity as Megastar’s Chief Creative Director.

The video activities comes as MSM is finalising production, media and marketing spend to generate massive interest in the Megastar competition and the launch of the Megastar App in six key regions.

To maximise user uptake, the company and its industry leading advisors are timing its global activity to ensure users can engage with the Megastar App immediately upon learning of its existence. Social media engagement and App downloads are expected to occur rapidly once marketing activity commences.

In addition to the video productions, leading Australian and US broadcast media will conduct interviews under embargo, until the global public relations, media and marketing campaign is executed in October 2017.

“We are very excited to have Mickey directing the production of world class video assets for the first Megastar competition,” MSM Managing Director, Dion Sullivan, said.

“These videos will provide highly engaging content for use within the app itself and they will also play an integral part in our global media and marketing program.”
