Kia Motors Releases Unique "Must See" Product Showcase "The Features Film" +VIDEO
IRVINE, Calif., July 20, 2020 Kia Motors America released a new product showcase entitled The Features Film which presents Kia automotive product promotion in a whole new genre.
Inspired by noir thrillers from Hollywood's golden age, The Features Film follows the story of a young man with a heart of gold who got mixed up with the wrong crowd, eventually becoming a getaway driver for the mob. Unfolding over the course of one night, our hero enlists eight A-List Kia models – Forte, Soul, Stinger, Niro EV, Niro HEV, Seltos, Sportage and Sorento – to help him break free from the seedy underworld and turn his life around.
"We'll miss going to the movies this Summer and catching the latest Hollywood blockbusters, so Kia took this as an opportunity to provide a similar viewing experience, but with a plot twist you never saw coming," said Russell Wager, director, marketing operations, Kia Motors America. "With many automakers offering the same or similar vehicle options, The Features Film is a unique, entertaining and fun way to differentiate ourselves and reach consumers directly with highly creative content."
Making cameo appearances throughout the movie are available key features, including: Remote Start; Remote Climate Control; Rear Cross-Traffic Alert; Rear-Camera Display; Smart Trunk; Mood Lighting; Premium Audio Systems; Lane Keeping Assist, Long-Distance EV & Hybrid range; Cargo Space; Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist; and 365-Turbocharged engines, with each playing a pivotal role and adding nuanced layers of convenience, safety, technology and comfort throughout the film.
The Features Film from Kia radically shifts the paradigm of what car feature videos can be. Produced by Kia's creative agency of record, David&Goliath, these videos elevate the expected demonstrations by placing vehicle features at the heart of a high-octane action film. By taking this unexpected approach, Kia made the feature-demo videos more engaging and highly watchable – yet still hard working enough to educate potential shoppers.
