“Social media enables word of mouth at an unprecedented scale. Its most powerful effect, through reviews and recommendations, is to put product quality and value for money as the key to success in commerce. Social brings a level of transparency that prevents marketers from advertising their way to success without underlying product quality.” – Roelof Botha
ON DEMAND WRITING SERVICES: There is no doubt that the digital era has helped to increase the number of films production and festival events significantly but at the same time it has also made the competition very tough. Many of the potential films and filmmakers are now being lost in the crowed. Today it’s really challenge for an independent filmmaker to give his/her work visibility. The purpose of Cult Critic’s Writing Services are to give visibility to the potential filmmaker, films and standard festivals. We offer in depth review writing service for both films and the festivals. The review is a targeted and to-the-point critique that is aimed at film watchers; the perfect for publicity for your film. The festival reviews are long in-depth overviews of the event. Both have a small fee required due to the time they take and the fact that requests submitted here are guaranteed to be covered when officially submitted.
Need to know the reception of your film from the perspective of a film watcher? Want powerful publicity that will get people into festivals to watch your film and requesting it at Netflix? Then our Creative Services and Critical Review is right for you. Our reviewers are film enthusiasts who enjoy Indie films as much as they enjoy Hollywood films. As such, they’ll give your film a fair shake and tell other film viewers what they liked and what didn’t work for them in a short, succinct review that’s great for press kits and getting folks to request your movies; Paranormal Activity as an example.
If you submit a competent, well-crafted film, they’ll watch the entire film before writing the review. Then you’ll have a shot at winning our CULT CRITIC AWARD. However, if you’ve made some colossal mistakes; your audio is messed up, your camerawork gives people migraines, or your actors can’t act – they’ll stop and let you know exactly at what point you lost them. That alone is powerful information.
TERMS & CONDITIONS FOR CRITICAL REVIEW SERVICE
