Political TV Advertising Analysis
SacTV.com "Video of the Day" review by
Alex Cosper on November 5, 2012
Frank Casanova of The Studio Center explains to us in this video how effective political TV advertising
can be. Several such ads have been produced at his video production facility. He believes that the production
and content can make a difference, but usually late in an election cycle people start to burn out on the ads.
There gets to be a point where people have made up their minds and ads don't matter. At the same time,
Frank believes that messages can shape elections.
He also notes that California had two major examples
in the last election (Meg Whitman for governor and Carly Fiorina for U.S. Senator), in which the candidate
who spent the most money on TV ads did not win the election. In those cases the negative ads did not resonate
with voters, whereas negative advertisement can work as entertainment, if done effectively.
