The documentary WE STEAL SECRETS details the creation of Julian Assange's controversial website "Wikileaks"... as well as investigates some of the complexities regarding the Bradley Manning case.
We knew there would be breaking news on Wikileaks and Bradley Manning throughout the various distribution windows for the film. We wanted a way to push breaking news to users and bring them back to our website. We soon realized that the best way to accomplish this was to use Facebook as our primary marketing destination for the film. But we wanted more than just a Facebook feed. How could we control the breaking news from overwhelming the look and feel, and overall marketing message for the film on Facebook.
The solution we devised was an interactive Facebook app that served as a landing page for our film while also serving as a bridge between film release info and the relevant breaking news.
