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. Grasp the implications of every move, know where and how to reach your audience effectively every step of the way, whether they are financiers or the end consumer.
By following simple processes and working together we can build release strategies and campaigns to ensure your film will appeal to the right audience, at the right time.
WHY DO I WANT TO DO THIS?
To be part of the film industry was always a lifelong dream; I wanted to be part of that magical place where you could immerse yourself in the dreams and fantasy displayed on the big screen, and share that experience with others.
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 gave me information about them, how I heard stuff on the radio or saw ads on TV or on big poster sites (it was before internet – I know, really!). 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 by the skilful use of marketing. 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. This is the power of social media and it drives the all-important word-of-mouth - more critical now, than ever.
After working for many years in studio distribution, marketing and releasing hundreds of films to all different audiences my love of the cinema experience led me to found ‘Iheartcinema'. Yes, I love the cinema experience; it's any film-makers ambition to unveil their creation in front of a big audience, but for me, it's really down to the quality of the content, wherever it is shown and however it is consumed. Fantastic content, be it film or long- or short-form series, can be appreciated in many different ways.
Every film has a voice that needs to be heard, whether in cinemas, on home screens or on 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 struggles to be heard above the cacophony of other voices out there. Maybe it's not sure who it's trying to shout at. Which is exactly where Iheartcinema 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.
