Year One of Movie Marketing Madness 3.0


A little over one year ago I decided to restart Movie Marketing Madness. I was, quite frankly, feeling the itch to do so again, primarily because I wanted to regularly write something unique and didn't just want to keep doing the same "Here's what I think about the latest social media news" type of posts. … Continue reading Year One of Movie Marketing Madness 3.0

One of the my goals for my time after the recent...unpleasantness...was to increase my skill set. I was really good at a number of things but could be better at others. So the first thing on my To Do List was to explore an area I'd dabbled in but never really learned much about: email … Continue reading HubSpot Email Certified

Making Some Changes Here…


I've been mulling some changes in focus and where I put my efforts and have made some decisions that are going to be of interest to like five of you, but whatever.

I broke down a couple weeks ago and joined Letterboxd, the social network for sharing your movie viewing activity and opinions. It's caught on in a big way with a lot of movie writers and critics and has been in the news quite a bit recently, especially around the recent launch of its first iOS … Continue reading Letterboxd

After the Campaign Programming Notes

I should note this is a question no one was asking but which I feel compelled to answer regardless, specifically regarding the After the Campaign feature here. The notion behind this feature is to write about how well a movie itself measures up to the marketing campaign that helped launch it. Did it intentionally or … Continue reading After the Campaign Programming Notes

More Indie Film Coverage in 2016; Here’s How to Get Involved

nobody walks in la

A while ago I came across the film Nobody Walks In L.A. The filmmaker, Jesse Shapiro, had already shot the film but was running a Kickstarter to cover the cost of licensing the music he wanted. The trailer he’d put together made it look like a nice little character piece about a guy being pulled … Continue reading More Indie Film Coverage in 2016; Here’s How to Get Involved
