The actress, best known for her roles in Casualty and Hollyoaks, mimics Uma Thurman as Mia Wallace in the 1994 Tarantino classic, Pulp Fiction, to promote Moments Worth Paying For, which encourages film fans to pay for the real deal.
Gemma joins BAFTA award winning actor, writer and director, Adam Deacon, in supporting the campaign, which was the brainchild of two young Design students from London. Omri Dvir and Leighton Pountney won a competition to devise an innovative take on the industry’s anti-piracy advertising.
Their advertising concept features a series of clues to iconic films, including cult hit Pulp Fiction – and invites the public to guess the Moment Worth Paying For at Findanyfilm.com, a search engine for official film and TV.
Gemma Atkinson, who is currently pursuing a promising film career, spoke of her support for the campaign: “We all have those films that remind us of certain times in our lives and move us every time we watch them. This campaign celebrates those moments that really stay with you and suggests that the feeling you get when you watch great film and TV is something worth paying for.”
“The clues and the online quiz are great fun, but there’s a serious point being made too. When you pay to enjoy the real thing, you support the people who worked hard to make it and show your appreciation for the experience you get in return.”
Omri Dvir, one of the students behind the campaign, said: “We’re thrilled that our idea is being turned into a real advertising campaign. We wanted to get across the point that the price of a ticket, download or DVD is great value for all the enjoyment you get back.”
The new advertising will form part of the UK film, TV and video industry’s innovative Moments Worth Paying For campaign, which spans cinema, outdoor advertising, PR and social media. It will feature in Clear Channel advertising spaces UK-wide from tomorrow as well as on Findanyfilm.com and a wealth of other film and TV industry websites.
