We not only raise awareness for a film and its subject matter, but also for the creators and filmmakers of a project, thus drawing media attention to producers, directors, production companies and programmers. Dish is known for our bold ideas and a focus on results through creative outreach, persuasive material creation and our campaigns, which are customized to our clients’ specific needs.
In addition to consulting on projects before completion, Dish has represented films from their first festival acceptance to their theatrical or television debut. We have been instrumental in planning and implementing award strategies and have helped our clients to win various awards including Academy Awards®, Emmys and Peabody Awards, in addition to top honors at film festivals including Sundance, Toronto and Tribeca.
We work closely with the industry trade and consumer media to raise the profiles of both the series and their creators, turning fledgling programs into hit shows, and ensuring television specials gain maximum media attention.
Our event capabilities can include everything from conception, production, overseeing invitation process and guest lists, media outreach pre, during and post event, and red carpet staffing on-site with experienced personnel. At the conclusion of each project, a detailed recap highlighting event success is provided to our client. Through our events we create compelling experiences that are unique, exclusive, and get not only the media but also the targeted constituency excited.
A successful outcome of an event is just half our job. We also work to ensure that whether premiering a film, launching a special, building a network’s brand, or garnering tune-in for the next year’s program, we focus on the client’s vision and their long-term commitment to the project.
We have planned and executed events at several film festivals, including Sundance and TIFF, which vary from corporate sponsorship parties to intimate dinners. We have worked with HBO Corporate’s West Coast Events office managing event media outreach for programming in all of their divisions including: Series (Boardwalk Empire, Game of Thrones), Mini-Series (Mildred Pierce, The Pacific), Movies (Hemingway & Gellhorn), Sports (Magic & Bird, Runnin’ Rebels of UNLV) and Documentary (Alexandra Pelosi’s Citizen USA, Rory Kennedy’s The Fence and World of Wonder’s The Strange History of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell).
Dish determines the current perception of our client’s company and/or products; identifies the existing competition; and in conjunction with our client, creates a detailed strategy. We believe that well-written, individually tailored press materials are the foundation of a public relations campaign so we devise original, succinct and effective information.
Dish knows exactly what the media is looking for and how to deliver it. We can organize video news releases, public service announcements, media tours and satellite press tours to communicate our client’s message effectively.
