Expert advice

When making a film, you plan and research everything. And when that pays off on screen? It’s magic. It’s the same with your release strategy. Knowing what you want and how to get it is everything. With a smart plan in place, you can take the right steps to get your film exactly where you want it: being seen and talked about by the right people. 

Together Films helps filmmakers and institutions create strategies to achieve their objectives. Reviewing where their focus lies; whether in revenue generation, audience reach or critical reaction. For most it’s a combination of the three, but it’s important that all of your team members know which is most important for your current project. We can either draft you a strategy from scratch or join mid way to help reframe your objectives and keep you heading for the finish line. Whether you are in development, nearing completion or already made your Film Festival Premiere, schedule a call to make sure that your film is on the right track. 

There’s so much to do once your film is nearing completion.

Enter festivals. Get your social media going. Design a poster. It can all pile on like one giant to-do list from hell. We can help you break down that to-do list. We’ll strike a few things off – and add new ones. You’ll get a manageable timeline of action points. After investing so much time and money in your film: equipment, late nights editing, credit card charges, it deserves the best chance at release. With a vast array of options, and much more flexibility for you to retain and monetise some of your rights directly, it’s important you put a strategy in place early on.

We offer our time in transparent blocks. Book in for a free initial consultation and we’ll spend 15 minutes discussing your project and possible next steps. There’s no obligation to book further sessions – it’s entirely up to you.

We can assemble a team to run your entire campaign from start to finish, or step in to offer support at whatever stage you need. Our network includes the best publicists, social media managers, impact producers and distributors, and so can advise on the best fit for your project. We'll start by reviewing your film’s potential and then working through a detailed 12 point strategic plan covering objectives and outcomes, budgetary needs, partnership development and evaluation metrics.

We can also review potential grant, brand and philanthropic funders who might be a good fit for your project and help craft the language to encourage them to get on board. Depending on your budget we can either provide a quick fire round of innovative ideas and strategic thinking on a call for your to explore further, or work with you over a series of months to guide you through the entire process.

If you have a range of ideas, but unclear how to order your thoughts, We can also come in for a full day workshop with your team to clarify your objectives and create a strategic overview that can be used for funding applications and/or implementation.
