AFM Promotional Program for Film Industry Professionals

Are you attending the American Film Market (AFM) 2017?

If you want to advance your career in the film industry, you cannot miss AFM. It is truly an irreplaceable experience.

I represented some producers at AFM a few years ago, and I'm glad I had a chance to attend two of them, but now that I look back, I feel that there is really no substitute for attending and working the show yourself.

If you are serious about marketing a completed film for distribution, I offer a promotional program that I want you to consider.

We can promote your film to the industry trades in the coming months, and we can guarantee that your press release will appear on a number of media sites, that you can use when you promote your project in person to potential distributors.

My program will enable you to arrive at AFM totally, professionally prepared. Appointments set with companies that are important to you. The people you meet with will know you, and respect you as an industry professional, someone who knows what they are doing. During your meetings you will be calm and confident.

My program is about your empowerment, I want you to be able to look back and say "I did it, and I did it well."

Designer Carolina Inoue
Takes Hollywood

Last year she worked on The Gliksmans, directed by M. Skolnick, starring the legendary actors Edward Asner and Cloris Leachman; The Open House, directed by Matt Angel and Suzzane Coote, and starring teen star Dylan Minnette.

"Production Design and Costume Design are tightly connected. One of the most often comments I most frequently receive is people wanting me to overlook both departments, even when we have separate professionals taking good care of each. That's because they trust my work in both. So why should I choose one or the other if dominating both is what makes me unique?”

She has worked with Netflix, Disney, Universal NBC, Warner Bros, CBS, just to mention a few.
