The challenge

Deliver the UK online publicity campaign for Pathé's biographical drama, JUDY. Whilst shining the spotlight on her life, music, iconic status and fighting spirit, the campaign had to be sensitive to very protective Judy Garland fans.

Creative strategy

To celebrate the woman behind the singer, the mother, the survivor and to revive the legend of 'The World's Greatest Entertainer'. Our activations – themed around survival, celebration, glitz & glamour – discovered what lies beyond the rainbow, in jubilation of Judy Garland’s life and Renée Zellweger's return to the big screen.

Feref managed all UK social channels, successfully establishing go-to pages for all JUDY content across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. We built a community of over 10K followers around JUDY and earned our blue ticks with flying colours. We also ideated and created the full social toolkit consisting of 25+ assets and captured live social content from all JUDY events.
