The year 2022 has been dubbed ‘a defining year for attention’. This focus is deeply needed. Attention has become a scarce resource – a report by Dentsu found only one-third of adverts get the audience’s full attention. Where possible, people will skip ads or look away.
Brands are increasingly fighting for crumbs. The Dentsu report highlights that adverts that are only seen peripherally can be effective. Advertisers seem to be content with this. It’s time for a step-change, not only in how we measure and plan for attention, but also in how brands create strategies with attention at the heart.

DCM Creates Dedicated Branded Entertainment Property
Digital Cinema Media (DCM) is launching a new media property that is dedicated to branded entertainment, longer narratives and engaging storytelling.
Named ‘DCM Studios Presents’, the three-to-four-minute in-reel spot will allow brand and agency partners to maximise the uniqueness of the most compelling media environment possible by creating bespoke branded content stories for the big screen, with only a limited number of spaces on offer in 2022.
Drawing on new insights from Applied Consumer Neuroscience (ACN), which proves the power the big screen has in delivering heightened consumer engagement through compelling storytelling, DCM has partnered with ACN and Brand Directors, to further explore the impact the cinema environment has on audience’s receptiveness to advertising in the knowledge that screen size, context and content are fundamentally relevant.
