Cornetto Cupidity

April 7, 2015

Cupidity – Case Study

Challenged with finding a new way of engaging a teenage audience in a modern world, Cornetto launched the Cupidity series with Unilever and RSA. We shot four 10-minute films in different global locations – Istanbul, LA, Hong Kong, and London, incorporating new music from up-and-coming acts.
The unifying theme of the works is love. After premiering in Turkey the films attracted over 5-million views in their first two weeks online – leading to the commission of further Cupidity projects. The popularity of the films is such that they have so far been watched over 50-million times worldwide.

Mark Nunneley’s second film for the Cupidity series tells the tale of a young couple who after moving away to separate colleges decide to do whatever it takes to stay in touch and stay together.

Mark Nunneley’s Kismet Diner spot was one of the most well received short films of 2013. Winner of a Cannes Silver Lion and the Manhattan Short Festival Award, Kismet has so far received over 11-million YouTube views. It also earned a spot in the carefully curated Vimeo Staff Picks.


Cupidity – Beauty & The Geek
