PROMOTE YOUR FILM.
TELL YOUR STORY.
Let us support your filmmaking journey with a marketing mix that fits your budget.
On average, Hollywood films spend 60% on top of their production budgets on branding and marketing.
"I make movies for the audience. I make movies for people to see them. I want people to see my movies. And the more people that see my movies, the more I can make movies."
"It's so important to have a marketing plan that is going to go beyond the typical moviegoer and reach the audiences that need to see these stories the most."
"Marketing is absolutely crucial. It's about getting the message out there and creating a buzz around the film. You have to work with the marketing people to make sure that they understand what the film is about and what you're trying to achieve."
"Marketing is essential for any film, but especially for independent films. You have to be strategic and smart about how you market your film, and you have to make sure that you're reaching the right audience."
On average, independent films spend 0% on top of their production budgets on branding and marketing*.
*Based on an independent poll of 1,000 independent filmmakers.
"The situation, sadly, is that we now have two separate fields: There's worldwide audiovisual entertainment, and there's cinema. They still overlap from time to time, but that's becoming increasingly rare. And I fear that the financial dominance of one is being used to marginalize and even belittle the existence of the other."
Let us help you find your audience.
Independent films don't have to be overshadowed by studio films.
Where there's an audience, there's a way.
