Prop Placement supplies branded props to production companies and studios free of charge for suitable sets and scenarios where the product would naturally feature and therefore be editorially justified.
Brands are represented by agencies like us to support the production industry. Offering a cost-saving opportunity that enhances realism within the content itself, brands benefit from featuring within high profile content alongside key talent. There are no official deals in place between the agencies, brands, production companies or studios and final inclusion is not guaranteed as opposed to paid campaigns.

High-level brand integration is where an episode or part of an episode features around the brand itself. These opportunities occur across lifestyle, reality, and factual content.
Branded products are supplied free of charge but there is a larger element of support, for example the use of a brand's production facilities as a location, or a brand ambassador featuring on-screen as an expert.

Paid deals with broadcasters and studios guarantee inclusion, whether it be a reference to the brand, a product, service, or trademark for a commercial purpose. Guarantees are usually linked to the time on screen and/or release of the exposure.
Larger licencing and amplification opportunities can be secured around placement activity and investment levels are much greater than Prop Placement campaigns because of the guarantees offered.
Using the latest audience analysis tools, we target key audience types based on demographics, interests and viewing habits to increase our placement targeting effectiveness and campaign results.
Character and audience targeting allows us to manage bespoke placement campaigns for brands across all category areas.
For Prop Placement retainer campaigns, we fully manage activity from start to finish; including product storage in our on-site warehouse and the logistics directly from our team to set.
This allows us to support our proactive placement search and be reactive to last-minute changes on set, bringing new opportunities for brands.
