Digital Audience Development for Film

Creating digital communities for film and TV

We offer a bespoke service to help film and TV producers create an online audience of fans, and distribute their projects digitally. We will set up and manage your social network profiles and create a busy blog and website for your film. We will even help raise funding for the film through a crowd-funding campaign, run competitions and campaigns to create a buzz around the film, and can support its eventual online distribution by adding a download widget, e-commerce facility for DVDs, or help with distribution through a third party. We will basically be your DAD (Digital Audience Developer).

For one set fee, film-makers can receive support from pre-production right up until distribution, with no hidden costs. TV producers, or producers with more than one project in development or production, may prefer a manageable monthly subscription fee. Either way, with crowd-funding offered as part of most options, we could easily pay for ourselves – we might well be giving you money!

Film Producers

Film-makers need an online audience of engaged fans to raise production funds, and to promote and sell their film. By engaging directly with the fans we can help create an ongoing buzz, and ensure that the film reaches the particular niche audience who will love it.

We understand what’s involved in creating a feature film. You’re juggling cast, crew and finance, searching for sales agents and distributors, and hanging on for that perfect festival. We know that your schedule could change completely at any point. That’s fine with us. Your digital DAD will be on hand from pre-production right up until distribution, for up to 18 months, for one simple set fee.

Television Producers

Television is one of the most talked-about subjects on Twitter, and around 80% of under-25s use a second screen while watching TV. This is a huge conversation about YOUR Television show that you need to be part of.

Your Hot Tap DAD can make sure that the conversation flows during TX, and will keep your audience engaged with competitions, events and conversation. Audiences who feel connected to a show are much more likely to share it with their friends, meaning more viewers and higher ratings. Result!

We can also monitor what audiences are saying about your particular judges, characters, and storylines to help you hone and develop your show, and send you regular reports to monitor your audience engagement and general sentiment towards your programme.
