Hi Everyone – Kat here.
Ten Thousand Steps is a short film with such an infectiously good script and team, that it made me incorporate another business, and jump headlong into being a film producer.
Retrograde Films Inc is a Toronto/Vancouver cross-Canadian corp, that Spin the Idea manages as a subsidiary. We’ve done everything for it from a corporate standpoint through to the project level, branding the business and the film as we go.
With pretty much all of the money going into production, we used a grassroots approach for Ten Thousand Steps.
We have a great website that gives young filmmakers resources and a glimpse at how short films are made.
We have great business cards, trailers, a strong brand, and really strong social media interaction on Twitter and Facebook – all part of the strategy and shoe-string budget.
Now we’re applying for TIFF, and doing the festival rounds. Gulp.
Keep checking to see what’s next for this amazing project.
