Jon and Peter help clients connect with both traditional and innovative distribution channels, including TV broadcasting, theatrical release, video on demand, digital sales, and ancillary markets in North America and around the world. Leveraging relationships with an extensive network of influential professionals in key markets across the globe, Jon and Peter help bring independent voices and fresh visions to audiences while furthering the careers of their clients.
Financing and finishing funds
Jon and Peter bring a comprehensive understanding of independent motion picture financing to the table, and can help clients secure funds for projects in development. They can also arrange finishing funds for films in need of extra assistance to complete the post-production process, and have privileged relationships with post-production houses throughout Los Angeles, where clients can take advantage of cutting-edge resources and technologies.
In addition, Jon and Peter also apply their deep understanding of film financing and marketing to create packages that make client projects more attractive to both domestic and international financing sources.
Rights management and contract negotiation services
Right management is something many independent filmmakers aren’t properly prepared to handle, given the complexities involved and the need to accurately anticipate future outcomes. This is one key area in which Jon and Peter excel, helping filmmakers protect their interests and reap all the rewards of their labor.
Clients can also rely on Jon and Peter to negotiate favorable contracts with financiers and distributors on their behalves. Because Film Marketing Services is a boutique agency, clients benefit from hands-on attention and close relationships, ensuring that their needs and career objectives meet with favorable outcomes.
