TV Advertising Sponsors Needed For Movie Trailer

Cordova, TN - June 17th, 2015

(Memphis, TN) Large corporations who routinely advertise on TV are the type of sponsors needed for a new advertising concept, says artist filmmaker Karen Francis, business owner of Art Promotions. The moving feature film CHRISTMAS RIDE is ready for wider cinematic release and available as a DCP. But in order to roll the movie out to a larger number of movie theaters, either one national sponsor, or ten city-specific sponsors, who can benefit from the creative vehicle of the trailers for the film, must be found. Cinema chains require a significant commitment of funds for advertising the film's presence prior to opening. For a select few, a corporate logo could be placed at the end of a new trailer for the TV advertising campaign announcing the family friendly movie. Most people enjoy watching film trailers, so it should be a good target for ad piggyback rides. As evidence, co...
