An Executive Chef is selected and dedicated to each private event based on the type of desired cuisine.

Documentary Film EMBARGO Has Successful Park City Screening

A nearly complete cut of a provocative documentary “Embargo” revealed the dark secrets behind the U.S. embargo on Cuba during a private screening in Park City that coincided with the Sundance Film Festival. Three simultaneous screenings of the film took place in one stunning private residence. In attendance were media and other influential guests who gave a warm reception and enthusiastic response to Filmmaker/Producer Jeri Rice of Santa Monica, California. Redhead Marketing & PR had the privilege of being engaged to invite members of the press to attend the screening and generate media attention for the riveting film.

Approximately $100,000 is needed to complete production and get the politically timely film to a wider audience. Given President Obama’s recent policy announcement shift toward Cuba and the start of diplomatic relations, there is a lot of interest in “Embargo” which serves as a catalyst for change, discussion and enlightenment.

The film’s Executive Producer, Geralyn Dreyfous of Impact Partners, is renowned for her work on several Academy Award-winning documentaries, including “Born Into Brothels” and “The Cove.”

Working it for Your Clients, Not Just Yourself

Those of us working in the communications field are well aware of the importance of networking, especially when managing our own businesses. Whether formal or informal, networking opportunities are everywhere. I’ve gotten clients as a result of an article in the local paper about Redhead Marketing & PR and pitching myself in an email to a new business that I believe my particular experience could benefit as well as by attending a party with well-connected guests or even through strangers sitting next to me on the chairlift.

While it’s essential to look at nearly every facet of your life as an opportunity to make new connections, we believe it is important to always remember your clients when doing so. Networking on behalf of your clients is critical to demonstrating your value to them.

During a recent professional mixer in Salt Lake City, I met a creative director for a Salt Lake City advertising agency. I asked who some of their clients were, and one of them stood out among the names. I knew it was a relatively philanthropic company, and thought one of my non-profit clients for whom I manage the public relations could benefit from an introduction. While development and fundraising aren’t part of my official responsibilities with this client, I decided to be proactive and ask the creative director if he might share the name and contact information for his client’s philanthropy division. This led to the obligatory business card exchange.

I followed up with the creative director the next morning, and by the end of the day he had emailed me the contact information for the Director of Philanthropy of the company that had piqued my interest. I reached out to the individual and pitched my client for a meeting. I heard back the very next day and coordinated a meeting between him and my non-profit’s founder. The amazing result of their meeting was a $25,000 donation. All I had invested was mileage to the networking event in Salt Lake, the $10 to attend, and a bit of email correspondence the following day. My client was over the moon (as was I), and I demonstrated that I am enthusiastically willing and able to go beyond the scope of work defined in my contract.

SundanceSundance Film Festival, which may as well be called “Schmoozedance,” gets underway today in Park City, Utah. While it’s tempting to hide from the crowds that often seem dominated by Hollywood wannabes, genuine networking opportunities exist. Be selective about what events you attend. One of the most worthwhile for me has been the cocktail party hosted by my alma mater, Columbia University, for its alumni in the film industry. I can always count on this being a gathering of like-minded, educated and ambitious professionals who share my background and goals as opposed to the throngs of gawker types who come for the festival. When Sundancing out there, be sure to remember to build connections for both yourself and your clients.

 

Sundance Film Festival is Upon Us

We’re keeping busy helping a couple of clients gain some exposure during the Sundance Film Festival, taking place January 19 to 29 in Park City, Utah.

Sony Music has engaged us to navigate the Sundance scene for five-time Grammy nominated artist, Ski Johnson, a contemporary jazz saxophonist. Looking to do some advance promotion for the June release of his album with Queen Latifah, we have lined up some appearances for Ski during the festival. As passionate skiers ourselves, we’re eager to find out if Ski skis! Ski Johnson will perform for the Luc Robitaille Celebrity Shoot Out Echoes of Hope benefit party on Jan. 21 at the Fender Music Lounge. This fundraiser is in celebration of the celebrity hockey game that follows the next day at the Park City Ice Arena. Ski will also perform at the Eco Hideaway Music Saves Lives Celebrity Lounge on Jan. 22 at Stein Eriksen Lodge in Deer Valley. This is an invite-only, chill-out and gifting lounge for celebrities attending Sundance.

zReturn, an online lost and found service, hopes to benefit from its first event marketing experience by having a presence at the Sundance Film Festival. Redhead created postcards that each have two complimentary zReturn ID tags affixed. These will be distributed in gift bags to festival goers, media and celebrities at more than a half dozen Sundance parties and events. zReturn tags enable users to anonymously identify their valuables, including cell phones, MP3 players and tablets. When a lost item is found, the finder is directed to zReturn.com to connect with the owner and ensure the return of the item.

We’re looking forward to a great time Sundancing with everyone, and it seems the snow will be falling just in time!

Redhead Client zReturn Featured in The Park Record

zReturn is the world’s easiest and most affordable online lost and found service. It enables consumers to anonymously tag their valuables such as cell phones, laptops, MP3 players and tablets. If an item is lost, the ID tag directs the finder to the zReturn website and to enter the ID number on the tag to be connected with the owner and make arrangements for returning the item.

The New York City-based company has engaged Redhead Marketing & PR to manage event marketing and public relations. Tags will be included in gift bags at exclusive events during the 2012 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.

Park City’s newspaper, The Park Record, included a story about zReturn in the October 22, 2011 edition of the paper. Click here to read the story.
