SHOOT is pleased to announce that its next Digital Workflow Solutions Sponsored feature will be published on August 14, 2015 and will appear across all SHOOT Digital Platforms, including, The SHOOT>e.dition, The SHOOT Dailies, the August/September issue of SHOOT Magazine +plus PDF version, The SHOOT Publicity Wire, Brand New[s], SHOOT RSS Feed, Facebook and Twitter pages.

Having received such positive feedback on the first three sponsored features published between October 2014 and March 2015, we are very excited to bring the great marketing opportunity to another group of companies involved in providing digital workflow solutions to the entertainment and advertising industries.   SHOOT is seeking sponsors from key areas of Digital Workflow, including Content Origination, Collaboration/Production Project Management and Digital Asset Management/Storage.  Hardware and software manufacturers/rental cos, postproduction and visual effects companies, and cloud based storage & distribution companies are invited to participate.  Included with sponsorship comes a powerful marketing package that complements and brings tremendous added exposure to both the article and the sponsoring companies.  See below for what's included in the package - we've made it even more powerful than the first three features by adding extra SHOOT>e.dition and SHOOT Dailies email newsletter banners!

With workflow such a crucial component of successful operations for everyone in the entertainment and advertising industries, it's critical for Production, Post and Visual Effects Companies, Movie Studios, TV Networks, Ad Agencies and Brands to choose the right services and toolsets for their needs.  Because SHOOT's audience includes executives and artisans involved in all of these segments of commercial and entertainment production and postproduction, Sponsors have the ideal opportunity to promote their companies, services and products to a great cross-section of potential clients.  The Workflow feature and marketing package created especially for it will enable sponsoring companies to share information about their services, equipment and software solutions persuasively with the production & postproduction creative community. 

The Workflow Feature Article
Participate to show why you are a leader in the field.  An executive (owner, partner, president, CEO, COO, managing director, CTO or other senior executive) from each of the participating companies will be interviewed about about his/her company, services or product offerings and customer base.
The following information will be seamlessly worked into the feature article...
►  Participant’s name, title, head shot and logo.
►  Primary business and customer base
►  Company description
►  Description of services or products.
►  Example/examples of how services or products have been best deployed by clients.
SHOOT Publisher, Roberta Griefer, announced that freelance entertainment technology writer Debra Kaufman, whose articles have been in the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Wired, Reuters, Bloomberg Business News as well as many leading entertainment industry trade publications, will again be conducting the interviews and writing the feature article. Griefer added that "The idea behind the sponsored feature is first and foremost to publish an authoritative article that will be informative to our audience while providing sponsors with high-profile digital and print promotion that brings attention to their companies."  SHOOT will heavily promote the feature to bring more exposure to it and will provide sponsors with print and banner advertising to bring extra visibility to each company.  Sponsorship provides sponsors with a strong marketing push at a very reasonable cost.  If purchased separately, the marketing elements that are included in the package would cost more than twice the special package rate. 
SHOOT has timed the Workflow feature so that it will appear in the August/September Issue of SHOOT Magazine that will be packed with other timely and relevant content. 
Here's a look at some of what else will appear in the Issue...
►  SHOOT's hugely popular annual "Mid-year Report Card" Survey Feature looking at the Production & Post industries first half of the year with thoughts on the next half from leading commercial and entertainment industry creative, production & post execs.
►  Part 12 of SHOOT's ongoing "Road to Emmy" Series that will include interviews/profiles of execs and artisans behind Emmy-nominated programs
►  Visual Effects & Animation + SHOOT's quarterly Top Ten VFX & Animation Chart
►  Music & Sound + SHOOT's quarterly Top Ten Tracks Chart
