818 has managed the publicity campaigns for some of New Zealand’s largest and most successful film, television and live event releases.

Working alongside distributors, promoters, producers and digital strategists, the 818  team have constructed effective campaigns that have dominated the conversation of the nation.

A clear campaign strategy, the best media relationships in the business, and passion for every project means 818 work every angle to create interesting, engaging and extensive coverage across all mediums.

Whether it’s through can’t-miss-it live television coverage of a red carpet release party, front-page reporting of red-hot opening weekend or season launch figures, or a hashtag that captures the imagination of local social media influencers, we will make sure your project gets the attention it deserves.
