Video content for Netflix’s global social channels expanding the historical themes within Netflix’s epic drama, The Crown.
In response to data that showed that viewers frequently went on to research the Royal family online after watching episodes of The Crown, we helped Netflix develop some some short-form films for their social channels.
Using footage from the show, archive imagery and motion graphics, the intriguing real-life stories of some of the greatest historical figures from British modern history were brought to life (and optimised for viewing on mobile, in a social feed).
The true story behind Prince Philip’s Royal Affairs. The Duke of Edinburgh who was greatly affected by his loss of power after The Queen’s coronation.
The story of King George VI, wonderful husband and father, who never expected to wear the crown.
Princess Margaret’s forbidden love for her pilot Peter Townsend, and their quest for happily ever after.
Prime Minister and Nobel Prize winner Winston Churchill, and his role in the early years of The Queen’s reign.
So far, the videos have received 2 million organic Facebook views alone.
