FantastiCon 2014 starts on the 16th August and is a celebration all things Sci-Fi.

This year it is heavily leaning towards British video game sensation Elite Dangerous, which maps all 400 billion stars in the Milkyway – that’s some sandbox.

We have modelled a Cobra Mk3 from the ground up with a custom Fantastic Books Publishing paintjob.

Fantastic Books are publishing 5 officially licenced books for Elite Dangerous, our own Creative Director Ramon Marett has written one of these short stories in the anthology book, Tales from the Frontier.

The Elite Anthology: Tales from the Frontier from Fantastic Books has been released for Kindle and other devices. Available here:

Our very own Ramon Marett contributed to the anthology and found it an honour to write an official piece of fiction for what is arguably one of the most anticipated video games of 2014.

Elite Dangerous (the game) from Frontier Developments PLC wins Escapist Magazine’s Best of E3 2014:


We understand the importance of your brand and in order for us to produce an effective commercial we need to learn as much as possible about your business and your objectives. In order to achieve this we take as detailed a brief as possible. This can be performed either over the phone or face to face. Our objective of this meeting is to get a true understanding of your business, the key demographics you are targeting, who your current customers are, what has worked for you in the past and crucially to understand your brand identity.


From the brief we will then produce concepts for your approval. Our clients have a varying degree of involvement in this process. We are happy to take any ideas you may have and add our expertise to them, or to solely develop a concept from scratch. After we have come up with some initial concepts we will then present these for your approval. At this stage we will choose the final idea for the campaign and begin work on the final script to be sent to Clearcast.

Media Planning

Intelligent media planning is essential to a successful campaign. If the right demographics are not reached then it does not matter how much of the budget was spent on the commercial itself. From the initial brief we will have a strong understanding of your target customer. We then use our expertise to produce an effective media plan. Our strong relationship with the broadcasters allows us to reach the greatest number of prospects as possible. Once we have produced a media plan we will then present this to you before final approval.

Video Production
After the script has been approved by Clearcast we can begin work on video production. We manage the whole process of producing your commercial. We work closely with freelance camera crews, whilst maintaining direction of the commercial ourselves and doing the bulk of both pre and post video production inhouse.


This is where we can enjoy the fruits of our labour. Once the commercial has been approved by Clearcast it is fit for television. We manage the whole process of getting your commercial live. This is done via the digital delivery system AdStream.  We will also provide you with a digital copy of the commercial(s).

TV advertising can be fragmented in a variety of ways to ensure that you are getting your message to the most effective demographic of people. If you are focusing on a certain area, or your product is only available in limited regions then regional advertising is for you. without having to invest in a national campaign you can help bolster awareness of individual outlets, help support weaker geographical areas or take advantage of the stronger ones.

As broadcasting technology advances regional advertising is being broken down into smaller and smaller areas. This means that television advertising is becoming more accessible to a greater amount of business.

Marett & Messenger are well versed in performing both national and regional campaigns.  They are not mutually exclusive. We intelligently use all the tools at our disposal to yield the greatest result. By using the plethora of niche channels now available to us you can run both regional and national campaigns simultaneously at reasonable cost. TV advertising has fantastic flexibility to offer to our clients, and by using methods such as these still proves to the most cost effective medium of advertising.

Below are the regional maps for ITV, Channel 4 and Five. These have all been taken from the website which is a fantastic resource for finding more information on television.
