Broadcast Ready Original Content

For Broadcasters, Distributors and Retailers

BookShort's goal is to create properties that can be delivered many times over many media platforms, including television, broadband networks and the Internet, on the big screen in theatres, CD-ROM and DVD collections, interactive digital TV and more. `

The visibility afforded each BookShort project is proportionally much higher because it is supported by marketing and publicity surrounding the book release. Of course, books have a very long shelf life, which extends to the short film as well.

Broadband entertainment, online social networks and digital television channels are well positioned to leverage the advantages of BookShorts media, while at the same time creating extensive sales and merchandising opportunities. Mobile devices are the next frontier. 

If you are a retailer, broadcaster or distributor looking for content that has high consumer appeal, contact Judith Keenan to discuss how BookShorts can contribute to your bottom line.
