PUBLICITY

Music
Complete national publicity support for album releases, launch parties, tours, special events, fundraisers, and other events requiring such support. We can tailor a plan to suit your needs. Our specialty is creating a comprehensive 12-week publicity campaign to launch your release or event. We will service the album nationally to all levels of media, follow up with personal phone calls to journalists to ascertain interest level (all answers recorded and supplied to you), set up interviews wherever possible, and help expose your music to a broader audience.

Film
Excellent written materials, outstanding organizational skills, and the ability to get along with just about anyone can only mean one thing: the unit publicist of your dreams. With the Canadian hit film Ginger Snaps under our belt, we're ready to serve the on set needs of the discerning producer.

Books
With an unorthodox approach to book publicity we helped The Green Room by Moe Berg become the biggest selling book for ultra-cool indie publisher Gutter Press. Find out how we can help you reach beyond your target audience.

Charitable Events
Each year we try and make sure that we give back to the community through involvement in a charitable event. We have worked with Trellis Gardens, the Sounds Like Justice fundraising event for the Association in Defence of the Wrongly Convicted (AIDWYC), The Daily Bread Food Bank, and several events for the White Ribbon Campaign. We back our convictions with action.

Festivals, Awards Shows and Conferences
For the last four years we have handled the publicity for the North By Northeast Music Festival and Conference in Toronto and this year are handling media for the Canadian Country Music Awards. Through this experience we have gained experience in media accreditation, garnering international exposure for the event, booking keynote speakers, arranging large parties, and coordinating all media activities associated with a large scale event. We can handle any type of festival or conference, including yours.

Personal Publicist
Whether you're looking to get the word out about something you've created, accomplished, envisioned or assessed, if it's a good fit we're game to accomplish anything. Or if you just looking for a respite from an endless media struggle, we're also very good at "no comment".
