Among the famous movies filmed here were classics like ‘Some Like It Hot’ and ‘Westside Story,’ along with recent hits such as ‘Basic Instint,’ ‘Green Mile,’ and the current HBO series “True Blood.”
MISSION AND COMMITMENT
Ostrow and Company believes in supporting the creative process behind a motion picture that begins with a compelling story and ultimately changes the way people think globally. The thoughtful execution of the story in a feature film or documentary is what makes it entertaining to watch. The skillful navigation through the Hollywood landscape is what allows the film to arrive and be seen by as many people as possible.
Ostrow and Company has arranged financing and or negotiated distribution for over 150 feature films and numerous documentaries. Our commitment is to good story telling that is compelling and entertaining. Our passion is to negotiate the business of film distribution and finance for producers and filmmakers who want to make a difference by delivering films that raise the consciousness of the viewer.
Ostrow and Company handles all aspects of the business of film so that the creative team can focus on what they do best- Create! Hopefully, the result is that the world is a better place.
Ostrow and Company focuses on three main areas of business for the filmmakers, independent producers and production companies:
* Find and negotiate distribution and licensing in all platforms for completed films
* Arrange financing for film projects in development
* Raise finishing funds for films stuck in post-production
Ostrow and Company negotiates deals for international and domestic distribution for all rights including theatrical, television and home entertainment. We strategically roll out with a film or project. We also follow up to track sales and handle collections on behalf of our clients.
Ostrow and Company provides a constant flow of quality films to the marketplace by scouting all the major film festivals, television and film markets. We are steadily building our staff of creative executives who attend film festivals, screenings and events. We aim to connect with the creative community who deliver the type of films we believe in and who see the benefit in engaging us to provide the kind of business support we offer as producers representatives.
We role out wide with a film or project in order to provide the opportunity for the executives to simultaneously experience the product at the studios, mini majors and independent international and domestic distribution companies. Creating a sense of urgency and ‘buzz’ is something we are known for and allows us to leverage interest from the various distribution platforms in order to create bidding wars. A specific strategic game plan is designed for each new completed film we have been engaged to represent in or out of the festival circuit.
