It has also carried out social media activities for WB's movies like Inception, Lahore and Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai. While these were on project basis, the agency now has a one-year contract with the group to manage all its activities on social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

George John, director, marketing, Warner Bros says, "Social media marketing has gained a lot of momentum over the last couple of years and has now become an integral part of our overall movie marketing strategy. It is the ideal platform to connect and engage with the young people who are such important consumers of our entertainment content."

He adds that Warner Bros Pictures India looks forward to widening its social media activities in the upcoming year in support of its 2011 film slate.

On being signed on, Shankar B, COO, Ignitee Digital Solutions says, "We are excited and proud to be working with Warner Bros, and will do everything in our capacity to make every campaign well-crafted, popular and successful."
