We are in the movie business! Why? It is a powerful marketing medium to offer our clients. As we all know, for generations Coca-Cola (arguably the #1 brand in the world next to Google) has utilized entertainment to successfully promote its brands.
Read a recent article on Marketing Dynamics featured in C47 Magazine (April 2011) about our philosophy on film and marketing: Marketing Producers
Marketing Dynamics has discovered the value of the magic of cinema to brands, companies, the culture, and the world for that matter. Our firm continues to look for films with redemptive qualities or films that good brands would want to be associated with because of the story, the theme, or benefits to society at large.
Please review some of our developments in film here:
