    A global, real-time social/mobile activation for Lewis Hamilton. I led a team in deploying our socially driven, mobile web app across 12 channels enabling us to direct fans to create and upload film content. From this we generated a real-time film series, supported by streams of bite-size social content. I undertook extensive outreach to ensure key fans and influencers were involved as co-creators and ambassadors of the project. The project made National Press and the campaign #tag gained a reach of over 14 million during the seven day activation. Case study​: vimeo.com/122091701
