What Others Are Saying
NEW SOLUTIONS IN A CHANGING MARKET
"We’d been noticing the lack of marketing expertise with the small distributors. At the same time, Aspiration was noticing this gap and chose to fill it by developing a company focused on marketing and filmmaker collaboration … Aspiration believes that filmmakers can provide key insights into the film’s audience and messaging, they enlist filmmaker involvement, collaboration, and oversight on brand consistency. We are excited to be collaborating with them on new solutions and also learning from all of their years of experience."
A COLLABORATIVE PROCESS
“The present and future landscape of the entertainment industry has been forever changed due to COVID-19. While it can be unsettling, it can also be an opportunity for filmmakers to re-evaluate, pivot, and use this time to approach storytelling and their subsequent releases in a different way. And while filmmaking should always be a collaborative process, distribution and release should be no exception. We’re very proud to have found great partners within the Aspiration Entertainment family for our release of JUMP SHOT.”
An Audience-and-Creator-Driven Partner
“What’s the difference between one partner and the other? Experience? Honesty? Creativity? Yes to all. There's one more that's often overlooked, however. Ok, so your project is released. Now what? You need a partner that knows audiences and how to reach them. Aspiration is audience-and-creator-driven. This approach has always stood out to me — that and their integrity as people."
A Vision & Heart For Bringing A Project To The World
"For years we hoped our film would find its way into the hands of someone with a vision and heart for bringing it to the world. Enter the team at Aspiration! What a joy and privilege to watch them bring their creativity, passion, excellence, flexibility, and work ethic to bear on behalf of our project. It was AMAZING to see all they accomplished in such a short amount of time. We can’t wait for round two this holiday season!"
