Hello, new here.
Hi, I've just registered here, been lurking a while.
My name is Marty, and I work with a company that does a bunch of work in the the film marketing/promotion space, and we also do quite a bit of social media "activation" for titles. I have a particular fascination for the independent film and how it reaches a paying market even though we mostly work on the "classic" big Hollywood stuff.
The arc of my career is unusual - I started in film and television in the early 1980's, on the set, as a PA, eventually a first AD and then digital special effects and post production, switched to interactive digital communications in the early 1990's and eventually the old and new converged for me about 5 years ago, as more and more media and entertainment projects became about digital marketing, distribution and commerce.
I'm simply observing the conversation here, it seems like a mostly mature and civilized forum for people who have a passion for making films. I don't really have anything to add to the discussion yet, but I did want to say hello.
