Passion + Determination + Courage
Welcome to Joseph K. Craig, an advisory service for budding independent filmmakers and creative types from across the globe. With more than 25 years’ collective experience in the film industry, we are best placed to manage your project from start to finish!
Our driver is in providing strategic advice to filmmakers, regardless of the stage of the production. Continue reading for just some of the ways in which we work with clients:
Financing independent films is complex and stressful. Our expertise is in creating financial plans and budgets that will carry you through to completion. We strongly recommend applying for the British Film Institute (BFI) lottery funding as an excellent first port of call for funding. In addition, we work with selected brands that engage in product placement – a great way to earn some extra capital! Some of the regular companies we have worked with include manufacturers of hair removal machines the British Institute of Lasers and technology experts Zarax.
Props and Music
Finding cheap props for independent films can be headache. That is why we work with studios and artists throughout the country to source affordable and high quality props and stage equipment. Top tip: Already have everything you need but no way to transport it? We can connect you to an affordable man and van service in the Greater London area. Man with a van companies offer great deals for the transportation of specialist equipment whether on a one-off or regular basis.
Marketing and Distribution
Using our extensive network of contacts in the industry, we will work hard to get you and your project maximum exposure. We specialise in negotiating the best deals for selected domestic and international distribution for independent films to make your film the next big critical hit. As one fun idea why not get a personalised tablet case or phone case to market yourself on the move? Our friends at Just Personalise specialise in custom made Apple phone cases that let you add your own image to your favourite devices.
Ok - you know that your movie is going to be a massive success, but as an independent filmmaker, some of the actors you require to play key roles may not have heard of you before. Although this might put some of the bigger names off, it doesn't necessarily apply to every actor. After all, everyone (actors included) have to start somewhere! Try and negotiate with your actors by offering a dividend if they star in your film.
