We’re thrilled to announce that the Independent film studio, Black Bear UK has appointed us as their media planning and buying agency following a competitive pitch.
In this partnership, we will be using our behavioural expertise to develop strategies based on scientific behavioural trends and deliver insight-led campaigns for Black Bear UK.
Black Bear UK is the newly launched UK distribution arm of Black Bear, one of the world’s leading independent studios, focused on creating premium content for a global audience while offering creators and filmmakers an unparalleled destination for creative collaboration.
Launching our partnership with the release of the brilliant Gamestop film, Dumb Money, we will manage an eight figure annual investment from Black Bear UK, which is set to release 10-15 wide release films annually, with a focus on commercial, genre and prestige titles for all audiences.
Throughout this partnership we will use our behavioural planning USP to deliver connection, cut-through, and drive cinema-going in an especially competitive entertainment space, working across their UK and Ireland markets and carrying out activity across all media channels, both traditional and digital.
