Bloomington, IND (PRWEB) February 23, 2012
Author Solutions, Inc. (ASI) announced today a strategic partnership with ScreenTest Solutions, a division of Screen Engine, LLC, to provide Hollywood Pitch users with access to its entertainment industry market research. Thanks to this partnership, Hollywood Pitch users interested in sharing their film and TV show ideas directly with Hollywood now have exclusive access to insider information that is critical for developing successful movie or TV show pitches, and for negotiating the best possible deals with production companies.
“We are extremely excited about our involvement with Hollywood Pitch,” said Bob Levin, head of ScreenTest Solutions. “This is the first time that the kind of research assets the movie and television industry use to aid decision-making will be made available to the general public. The feedback and information it will put into the hands of users will prove to be invaluable resource for pitching their movie or television show ideas for development.”
Hollywood Pitch users who sign up for the Strategic Pitch Package will be given access to ScreenTest’s strategic market research. All pitches submitted to Hollywood Pitch will also be made available in the Hollywood Pitch Database which is a one-of-kind, keyword/genre searchable site where entertainment executives can access available new material for potential adaptation.
“We have seen it proven over and over again that the more you know about what works and doesn’t work for your intended audience—from the earliest stages of development—the greater the chances for your ultimate success,” continued Levin. “We have been working closely with the team at Hollywood Pitch to design a product that gives non-entertainment-industry insiders access to the same resources used to test almost every box office release, and we are confident these services genuinely add to the overall power and effectiveness of the pitch.”
“The ScreenTest partnership is integral to the success of the Hollywood Pitch, as it provides our users with some of the industry’s most trusted market research, which until recently was only available to studios and big-time entertainment execs,” said Keith Ogorek, senior vice president of marketing for Author Solutions, the parent company of Hollywood Pitch. “Our company was built around making services that were at one point out of reach to content creators available to everyone.”
