Today for one of my papers, 'portfolio and dissemination', we had guest lecturer James Partridge from Admit One to come and give some great insight to us about marketing ourselves, the films we create and tell us about his personal experiences and what worked fo him.
"James specialises in marketing, promotion and sales development for the New Zealand screen industry. He currently works with productions from New Zealand, Germany, UK, USA and China, representing diverse screen projects 'in market' at events, including the Cannes Film Festival and American Film Market."
I have actually already had the pleasure of working with James already volunteering at his annual festival 'Terror-Fi Film Festival' so it was great to see him again and say hi. He let me know that he will be organising this years Terror-Fi Film Festival again so I will definitely be volunteering again to help out in any way I can since I had such fun last time.
