Filmmaking Review launches a paid review service for movies

Los Angeles based Filmmaking Review launches a paid review service for movies at an affordable cost for both independent filmmakers and studios

Feb. 20, 2013 - PRLog -- “Filmmaking Review is an online magazine bringing you the best of
self-made, indie and unusual films out on DVD, TV, theater and
festival with a constant turnaround of exclusive interviews with some
of the best professionals in the business. News from the mainstream
will be covered as well. This site is about the craft of filmmaking,
not the gossip of Hollywood, providing resourceful exclusive content for film lovers and industry professionals.”

Filmmaking Review’s sister site, Self Publishing Review is one of the
internet’s most-trusted review sites for self-published books, having
been recommended by The Guardian in the UK, Writer’s Digest and many
sites throughout the growing self-publishing community. It has offered
thorough, unbiased paid review services to self–published writers, as
well as other promotional options.

With the launch of Filmmaking Review in November, the site has
identified a gap in the market for the promotion and reputation
management of film, festival, VOD and DVD releases all at a very low

“Most filmmakers and independent distributors can’t spend a fortune on
publicity; they just need solid reviews to garner interest in
their product. Reviews are of course the best impartial form of
advertising and therefore the most trusted by consumers, but getting
friends and family to do it just appears obviously one-sided and
amateur, whereas an unbiased and professional opinion written in a
search engine-friendly way will be much more valuable to people
reading about the film online,” says website co-founder Catherine
Tosko, who formerly worked as an expert in SEO and social media for some of London’s best known media agencies, as well as a filmmaker and writer.

Henry Baum, an award-winning author and musician, founder of Self Publishing Review and co-founder of Filmmaking Review says of the paid review model,

“The demand for self-published book reviews is high, and we want to
offer the same model for the film industry, which is becoming more
like the self-publishing industry every day, as the tools of
movie-making are becoming more accessible.”

Filmmaking Review enjoys a team other expert writers, including
costume designer Tracy Tynan, daughter of Kenneth Tynan, and Hollywood
stuntman James AE Fuentez, as well as a number of film industry
professionals, all hand picked for their skills, experience and
writing talent.

The site is also a family affair: Henry Baum, a child of Hollywood, has brought his
parents into the fold, both with long careers in Hollywood. Producer
Carol Baum is contributing tips about movie producing and Tom Baum is
contributing tips and war stories about being a working Hollywood

The review service is available to independent filmmakers for a
realistic and sensible price, as well as offering advanced packages for studios and distributors. The service provides solid writing talent
and added search engine and social media optimization on social
networks such as Facebook and Twitter, as well as Reddit, StumbleUpon,
Pinterest, and Linkedin, and targeted groups interested in film

Review services start at just $5 for a press kit and trailer
submission, giving filmmakers and distributors an increased web presence for
crowdsource funding or festival visibility.
