I truly believe that Studio Beyond is shaping the future of movie -- making, by breaking down barriers and opening the door to the most closed industry in the world -- the film industry. Our partnership with the MPF is just one of the great advantages we can offer our members looking to finance and co-finance movies and we are in negotiations with others to strike similar funding deals.
London, UK (PRWeb UK) July 9, 2009
New online media and entertainment platform Studio Beyond which debuted at the Cannes Film Festival in May 2009, has announced a ground-breaking and revolutionary new way of making movies.
Studio Beyond has created a virtual movie city by offering a worldwide entry point to: talent, projects, funding, distribution, collaboration, networking, casting, press, online advertising, marketing, product placement, and broadcasting. All stages of filmmaking - now under one roof.
Studio Beyond provides an online distribution channel for its members. This enables filmmakers to maximise distribution opportunities, generate new revenue streams and give aspiring creative talent the opportunity to showcase their latest movies.
Studio Beyond has been specifically designed to meet the needs of film producers, sales agents, distributors, talent and casting agents, directors, writers, actors, editors, composers and press members amongst others. Members will be able to pitch their projects, synopsis, books, scripts and music scores to Industry Executives who in turn will be able to search, view and select from a database of projects and talent. Talent and Casting Agencies can discover new talent while Distributors and Sales Agents will be able to view movie trailers of films available for distribution. Studio Beyond can build global awareness for movies ahead of their theatrical release and hold private online screenings for the industry and press.
