Publicitymedia: Helping Film Publicist Mark Jones Cope With 2014 Oscar Success

Seasoned film publicist Mark Jones had more than ten years in-house experience repping high profile titles that included the cream of the UK’s independent theatrical releases.

Transitioning into the world of film publicity and distribution consultancy he was working for newcomer Altitude Film Distribution on the hotly tipped awards contender ’20 Feet From Stardom’ when the movie picked up 2014’s Best Documentary Oscar.

“I’d dealt with this kind of success before – but always as part of a team”, said Mark.

“But what do you do when you’re new, you’re smaller, you don’t have huge budgets but suddenly have a huge hit on your hands?”

“It wasn’t just the film magazines – newspaper, consumer magazine and broadcast journalists were chasing me for images, posters, trailers and clips”.

“I was a one man band – who was also working on other projects – and I quickly needed a way to efficiently and professionally service a huge number of media requests.

“Publicitymedia was a simple, efficient and very cost effective way of getting my material out there – whatever the file size or format”.
