Entitled “What will tomorrow be?”, the European Parliament has produced an online spot in an effort to raise public awareness of EuroparlTV and its content. Combining elements of classic film noir and contemporary comedy, the spot passes through the intriguing world of mystics and clairvoyants to illustrate that only EuroparlTV can provide viewers with clarity as to what tomorrow will bring. With this spot, the European Parliament wants to highlight that decisions made by the institution and featured on EuroparlTV have a direct impact on and may better inform EU citizens.
Launched in 2008, EuroparlTV is the official web television channel of the European Parliament,offering comprehensive coverage of parliamentary business in 22 languages to a variety ofaudiences.
To capitalise on efforts to increase public awareness of EuroparlTV, dissemination of the viral spot coincides with the launch of a EuroparlTV competition on 2 M ay 2011. The competition,open to all EU citizens, calls upon viewers to create their own viral video on the subject of cultural diversity within the EU. Submissions must be received prior to the deadline of 31 July2011. The competition shall culminate in a month-long public voting process to award the top three submissions on 15 October 2011.
A committed partner of the European Parliament, Schoolz & Friends EuropeanOffice is the communications agency responsible for the creative development and implementation of the viral spot.
