Film Marketing Event – Is It A Passion To Profit?
Imagine A Film Marketing Event…
Imagine, you have the red carpet…
Imagine you have all the paparazzi going…
The flash of the cameras…
You’ve got all of the security ready to holding back the hordes of spectators, waiting for their superstars to arrive…
And imagine the huge cost it goes along with that.
Now imaging how much it will cost if no one turns up!
But could this “will anyone turn up feeling” be avoided?
I asked Gina Gaudio Graves, from Directions University this very question in a recent interview with her about a Film Marketing Event and she gave me some really interesting ideas and thoughts that I would like to share with you.
Here are some of Gina’s thoughts:
Movie makers are really no different from entrepreneurs – they have a message to share – passionately!
Most movie makers have no business plans when it comes to marketing films – and many fail because of it
Film makers need to understand the power and structure of the internet before using it.
Film directors and producers must know what audiences want before they make movies
Testing ideas and concepts can easily be done online before swinging into production
The right message at the right time to the right audience is key to marketing a movie
Turning a passion to profit can be done on the internet!
Gina’s started off the discussion about a film marketing event, with a very detailed introduction to her life and did so so that we as here audience understand why she is qualified in here explanations about how to market a film. Her story alone would make a great movie!
We were then taken on an internet journey to discover how some of the latest new technologies and advancements in internet communication can really support us as we come up with new ways to market our films to the world.
I still think that we need the red carpets and the gala nights of a traditional film marketing event, but with the aid of Gina’s methods, we can certainly remove a lot of the guessing about our productions.
Every part of the movie, from script writing and to filming scenes, to marketing in film, all the way through to producing and marketing the movie, can be made simpler with internet feedback.
One thing was made very obvious in the discussion, and that was that filmmakers need to be friends with Google and the other search engines and have a system that allows them to use the immense power of the internet.
This interview will most surely share information and ideas that you have not considered before about creating an online Film Marketing Event
