Since 2014 we have been involved in providing publicity and digital marketing services to a range of projects; from crowdfunding campaigns through to VoD/cinematic releases. Our successes include the successful campaigns for Magpie, Arcadia Bay, Vampire Mob Graphic Novel Issue 1 and RAIN: A Fan Film About Storm as well as the Kickstarter for the award-winning short film Hello World.
Some of our achievements:
- In December 2016 we also assisted with the successful Kickstarter for Daphne Fisher’s Enough, helping to not only secure the $6K goal but also helping to raise an additional $945.
- After one month on Amazon Prime (US and UK), Apple Park Films’ Emotional Motor Unit and Little Pieces accrued a total of 5962 minutes of streaming across 287 individual streams with one month of social media marketing from us.
- We assisted NZ-based Chinese director Willie Ying with the Auckland release of his feature film, The Final Blade. The film was scheduled for an initial 3 days of screenings at Event Cinemas St Lukes, Albany and Queen Street and by the first day of screenings this was extended to an additional 5 days. Despite being screened during NZIFF 2018 we were able to secure media placements (including interviews) in outlets like Radio NZ, Western Leader/Stuff, Showtools, and the NZ Herald’s Time Out magazine supplement.
- Film Sprites PR also assisted with publicity and social media marketing for the successful post-production crowdfunding campaign for Us Among the Stones, the second feature from award-winning director D.R. Hood, starring Laurence Fox. With the help of a well-timed promoted social media post we were able to secure £2,000 in crowdfunding contributions in just two hours, helping the campaign to reach its target. The film debuted at the BFI London Film Festival in 2019. Hood’s first film, Wreckers, starred Benedict Cumberbatch and Claire Foy.
