OUR SERVICES

Here is an overview of some of the services we offer, please email us at

info@wearethetonic.co.uk for more information:


GET SEEN!
This is an online tutorial in distribution and will give you a good grounding in the process and things you need to be doing/thinking about to get your film in front of audiences. It's available through our website, click HERE for more information.


STAGE 1: THE DISTRIBUTION FIRST LOOK:
This a top level evaluation of your film from a distribution perspective and includes:
  • Watching the film / reading the script or package
  • Analysis of strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and challenges of your film and releasing it to market
  • A proposal of top level options available to you and our recommendations for next steps for you

STAGE 2: THE DISTRIBUTION PREVIEW SCREENING:
This is the next stage, providing you with more detail to inform your decision, for your film and where you're at, this would include the activity in the First Look above, plus:
  • Comparable titles details - performance (box office, DVD, VOD (if those figures are available), spend, release strategies
  • Top level direct distribution release strategy proposal*
  • P&A budget options
  • Revenue projections on the different platforms*
  • Recommendations on positioning, audience, marketing, next steps and timeline
* These two are, of course, dependent on the reactions of exhibitors, press and audience nearer the release time, but we can give you a good indication.


MENTORING:
You might decide that one of our mentoring programmes is the right next step for you.

We offer a 3 month and a 6 month programme, or we can create something more bespoke for you. There are also some funding opportunities available to support you on these programmes. Take a look at our Mentoring Page for more information.


CONSULTANCY AND DIRECT DISTRIBUTION MANAGEMENT:
Another option is for us to take on managing the direct release with you, bringing together the distribution team and delivering it for you. We take on a limited number of these projects a year, and this would be available depending on timings and if we have room on our slate, and are costed per project.


If any of the above looks good to you, please email us at info@wearethetonic.co.uk for more information.
