This year CREATEiNNOVATE has developed a unique partnership with film distribution and marketing experts We Are The Tonic and the UK's largest rewards-based crowdfunding platform Crowdfunder. Two CREATEiNNOVATE projects have been selected from the programme to benefit from the two companies bespoke expertise via their newly established programme The FilmCrowd.
The FilmCrowd, is a new innovative programme for filmmakers – over a 9 month period The FilmCrowd team will work with the 2 feature filmmakers selected from CREATEiNNOVATE to provide practical and tailored crowdfunding and distribution expertise on their projects. This mentoring will support the filmmakers throughout the process of fundraising for distribution right through to the release of their film.
The aim of the project is to raise an additional £50,000 for atmospheric road movie Light Years (Third Films) and romantic comedy Love Type D (Midnight Circus) for promotion and distribution.
Movie makers want to spend their money on making the best film possible but often underestimate how much they need for marketing and distribution to get people to see it.
We Are The Tonic CEO, Deborah Rowland
Both projects will receive expert advice from We Are The Tonic on everything from film posters to film trailers to building a successful film business, and at the same time the projects will garner support from Crowdfunder coaches to make sure the projects hit their targets and grow their audiences.
