HOW I CAN HELP YOU
I will work with you to put your film or project in front of an audience. Whether you are in development, pre- or post-production, whether you still need finance, a sales agent, or a distributor or you don’t even really understand what that means. You need to understand the implications of every move, and know where and how to reach your audience effectively every step of the way, whether they are financiers or the end public.
Because I believe that there are very simple processes that can be followed and that by working together we can build a strategy and a campaign to ensure your film will appeal to the right audience, at the right time.
WHY DO I WANT TO DO THIS?
Being involved in the entertainment industry was always a dream, ever since I was a kid, pretending to be the hero of my favourite films and TV shows at home. I knew that I wanted to be part of that magical place where you could immerse yourself in dreams and fantasy. After many years being lucky enough to work in distribution, my love of the cinema experience led me to found ‘Iheartcinema’. But I actively embrace the small screen – cinema to me is about the quality of the content, wherever it is shown. Fantastic content, be it film or short form series, can be appreciated in many different ways.
Before working in the industry, I never really questioned how I learned about the films I wanted to see , how I listened to friends, read magazines that told me about them, how I heard stuff on the radio or saw ads on TV (it was before internet – I know, really!). The answer, of course, is word-of-mouth and marketing. As a punter, I wasn’t really connected to that process, nor understood that there was an army of people called Distributors making sure I was going to be desperate to see the latest hit movie. Now every person with a device is capable of helping to market your movie, and sometimes they don’t even know they’re doing it.
I believe that every film has a voice that needs to be heard, whether in cinemas, through dvd or TV or VOD, on a big screen, or a phone. Sometimes, that voice is loud and clear and is able to shout its existence from the rooftops without too much effort. And sometimes it is struggles to be heard above the cacophony of other voices out there. Maybe its not sure who its trying to shout at. Which is exactly where I come in.
My passion is to help you fulfil your passion – your film is your voice, and I want to hear you shout long, loud and confidently.
