Walkers industry bought this oil from sunflower fields in Ukraine and Spain. Later, in June 2007, the Walkers industry continued to change the brand style to make it look good for the target audience.

Market research: 1)

In 2006, Walkers is the biggest brand in Britain as their sales are £505 million.


  • ‘Do Us Flavour’ encouraged people to create their own new flavour crisps idea for Walkers after the Walkers industry faced the risk of becoming less popular.

  • When people create the idea, they send the new flavour to Walkers and only top six flavours launched so the nation have to make the decision before reveal the winner with the prize of £50K!

Audience research:

Walkers’s profile

PSYCHOGRAPHICS (target audience)

  • People who like to buy Walkers would be MAINSTREAMERS because these crisps can be found in any shops such as Sainsbury’s. Walkers is the well- known brand in any shops.
  • There are the people who also like Walkers because they are the fans of football as they influenced by Gary Lineker.
  • However there is other group that maybe be interested in Walkers which is the STRUGGLERS.
  • Strugglers is the group of target audience who are interested in fast food while trying to escape from their depressing life.



The demographic group for the Walkers would be:

  • B class which is the middle class.
  • C1 class is the lower middle class.
  • C2 class is the working class.
  • D is the lower class (unskilled worker)
  • E is the students, elderly (retire from work) and casual workers.

All of these classes would eat the Walkers crisp though D  and E are more likely to eat Walkers as they are casual workers and are similar to Struggles. Also the crisps are suitable for students to eat because they love it.

b) Main challenges facing Saatchi & Saatchi while planning the campaign?

  • Trying to make their product become famous like Bacardi.

  • Trying to make a new product- alcohol known to Brazil as other countries have never seen it before.

  • Don’t want the product to become known for cliche- carnival (not to stereotype the Brazilian culture such as carnival).

  • Think about working with Selfridge & Co shop.

  • ‘Spirit’ drink is successful by selling people in Brazil.

  • Russians sell the vodka by forty percentages for export compares to Brazil sell Cachaca by ten percentages.


  • CONTAGION STRATEGY: people who try this product (Sacha Cheeba) would think it is successful and spread information to other people.


  • VIRAL MARKETING: people receive the email about Sacha Cheeba and Cachaca. So, people who received the email can send it to other people and to get them involved in the bar.

d)  Campaign successful?

  • At the end of the production (post production) they got the right photograph of ‘Jesus stand in the front of the bar’.

  • Campaign total cost: £20 million!

  • Willing to launch the Sacha Cheeba in London (clients are happy with it).

e) What does surprise me?

  • The Brazilian team are working very hard to get their new product looking fantastic and aim to complete the project by the deadline which is successful.

  • They use the process of pre production, production and post production to get through with a few problems but at the end it is successful.

Sagatiba project: PRE PRODUCTION:

  •  They started with the idea of creating their product by looking at the tagline such as Pure. So You Don’t Have To Be.

  • Collect the photograph of the Jesus statue to represent the Brazilian’s culture (not carnival). They then copy the photograph by drawing with different ideas for the background.

  • Create the different flavours of the alcohol and search for a man to match  the statue.

Sagatiba project: PRODUCTION:

  • When they finally find a right man which match the statue, they start to create the photo of him with different backgrounds.

  • There are some problems such as weather which spoiled their plan and one photographer can’t be involved for photograph.

Sagatiba project: POST PRODUCTION:

  • After the photograph, the editor looked through the photos on the computer to add the different light, colour and other to make it attractive.

  • Make the brief presentation about each picture and to explain what it represents.

  • The final idea is ‘Jesus’ statue stand front of the bar which attract the clients.

6. Job Role investigation- “Creative” definition/ what they do

There are eight different roles for TV advertising such as:









The example of the advertising art director’s role: 

The role of advertising art director creative should have an eye catching advertising design as the advert design needs to be attractive for their target audience. Therefore, she/he need to have good communication with the team which means other people will understand what they have to do with their role. However, the art director need to have good skill of art and design for the advertising including work with the copywriter to create the new ideas. Furthermore, he/she need to make the right choice of the location(s) for the photograph and it is very important to complete on time of the deadline.

2. TWO ADVERTS: Case file

PRODUCT: Walkers

TARGET AUDIENCE: Parents with general age



Use humour

Parents arguing over flavours of crisp. Use child to bring them together.

Extreme reactions to the flavours. Show close ups of the facial expression.

  • IDEA OF ONE RADIO ADVERT: The birth of Walkers (I help with the script).



Ozz (Oliver) Wills: director/ cameraman

Rebekah Afari: script/ editor

Mark: producer

Greg: storyboarder

Now we had finished pre- production paperwork and Mark make the appointment for media equipment. At moment we think about the actors; we need actor to be like parents as our target audience is parents of  general age. Firstly, we asked James our media teacher to be involved in our filming and he agreed to doing it. However, we need an actress and we had asked drama teacher but they are tight with their timetable. Our final decision is to use the drama students to involve instead. Also we add some initial ideas for the Walkers advert (see below).

  • Change of the plan: we unable to do filming as  Ozz’s (Oliver) appointment for equipment will be ready by tomorrow so we continue to update our blog. It was pity because I won’t be here tomorrow as the Academy got the inset day.


  • Ozz, Mark and Greg will do filming on our Walker advert.




We finished the TV advert so we focus on the editing and update the blog. Tragically, we had to film again as it need to be improved. It was difficult to see the Walkers packet and the location was bit dirty. However, the filming also look very rushed. So, our plan is to change our roles and decide to film again  tomorrow. We also change the bit of our storyboard:

Mark will be director and work with Ozz (Oliver), who is being cameraman, to make the decision about the angles on the storyboard while me and Greg help Ozz to work out the angles and the motion of the camera.

THURSDAY 5TH NOVEMBER 2015: Filming and editing.

This morning, Ozz bring the filming equipment and some students from our class, who are acting as the couple. We walk to the outside of the college area and the filming is based at the car park. The positive thing is there was the sign of drizzle rain as we know that afternoon will get worse.  After set the equipment, we ready to film.

After the filming we walk back to the college and we take some photograph of the couple with three different Walkers crisps (Ready Salted, Cheese and Onion and Salt and Vinegar) and we continue to update our blog.

In the last lesson with James, Ozz and me focus on the editing in the Final Cut Pro and it look more improved though there are some issue that go against regulation for example some actors wear a logo which is unsuitable.

Ozz and me continue on editing and it look good. When we almost finished with the editing and James help us to work out what motion we want for ‘Walkers’ title which is on the front at the left beside the couple who hold the three different flavour crisps to represent the babies. James also taught us how to use the motion in the Final Cut Pro. When we finish with the editing, Ozz focus on adding sound while I continue on the blog.

When Ozz finished with the sound, he email me a link of our Walkers TV advert:


a) Success of the advert project:  I think, at the end, the advert project improved because the first film was not nice to watch.  We group decide to create another short TV advert which lasts about thirty seconds.

b) Use of the technique: We use the camera and photography equipment. Firstly, we use the camera to create the zoom and close up on the couple and baby Walkers. Then, we use photography to create the Walkers family in the frame.

c) ASA issue: Our ‘WALKERS’ adverts project could break the law as we suggest the use of a male teacher and a female student as parents because lot of female drama teachers unable to join. It would look bad for our audience and the filming industry could fine us by the regulation law. So we change the plan: we use the male and female students from drama class in college or some students from our class.

In addition some of the actors wear a logo on their clothes which is unsuitable for filming as in real life the industries, who create their own logo, can sue the filming industry because we don’t ask for the permission.

d) Appeal the audience: At the end of the project, I think it is more improved than the last one because the Walkers crisp packets show often at the front which means the audience will understood what this advert is about and also it become more clear and  has a bit of comedy that would cheer the audience.
