Here recently, Compound Films did a deal with Hulu for major promotion. The company has already onboarded multiple companies onto the popular streaming platform. This has increased the exposure that newly produced projects get when they are completed.  The latest ad to be added was a coffee company from Los Angeles, California named “EH3 Coffee”. They were able to drive traffic to their official website by using an exclusive promo code.

The great thing for music artists is that they can now promote their music videos and albums on Hulu. They can add a scannable QR code to their promo video that will lead viewers to their social media accounts or artist pages. This is a great way to reach a new audience and build a new fanbase. We also promote on all social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and Tik Tok.

For local businesses and artists, the company also runs ads on local cable channels that drive traffic to a physical location locally in a preferred city. Tik Tok also favors local businesses because the platform is used to promote restaurants and local shops. Regardless of the mission, Compound Films can put your brand front and center in front of your future audience. Our new packages start at $1,500 to get the minimum ad slots on each platform.

Hulu has branded itself as the home for popular tv shows and the alternative to cable television. The platform has masterminded a plan to invite reputable business owners to advertise on their platform. This is a good thing to keep streaming costs low and to support the people that consume Hulu’s entertainment. As of late, Netflix has announced a higher monthly fee to watch the current inventory of comedy specials and self ranked “trending” movies.

The reason that Compound Films is excited about the opportunity granted by Hulu is because we work with “Minority-Owned Independent Businesses”. This means that any client of ours can get major digital reach for their new commercials and advertisements. In the last lockdown, many businesses were scrambling to stay open and forced to be creative with their products and services. We will be able to selectively market to an audience that relates most to the products marketed. 

This also means that Compound Films can take their services to the next level as well as capture significantly more marketing and advertisement dollars from business owners. Our brand ambassadors are excited for the exposure and marketing because it will make it easier to sell our services in new markets. Our brand ambassadors earn 20% commission on all services and products sold from our website. Seeing our services being marketed on Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, Tik Tok, Hulu, and Xfinity will help bring new eyes and new ambassadors to the company.

Houston — As the Coronavirus quarantined the world, streaming was at an all time high. Netflix’s stock saw a surge when work from home orders were issued making it soar to over $500. Movie theatre chains like AMC were left for dead amidst orders to close it’s doors during this pandemic. Their stock plummeted to under $4 and the rumors of an Amazon buyout quickly fizzled as the theatre giant returned to former investors to structure a new lifeline.

In this time, Compound Films has been busy creating relationships with Film Directors, Screenplay Writers, Actors, Technology Developers, Business Managers, Music Artists, and Venture Capitalists to design a 5 year plan that will ultimately carve out a new local Hollywood in Houston, TX. Recently, the social multimedia company Compound Films has finalized a partnership with streaming giant Netflix and household giant Amazon Prime to distribute future film projects as well as exclusive merchandise and digital products on Amazon Prime for these projects. You can expect a Comedy and a Movie/TV series to be developed and screened in 2021.

The future world with Covid-19 is unclear but it is highly encouraged to “pandemic proof” your businesses models and supply chains. The umbrella company New App Kings LLC plans to also distribute comedy specials produced by the Laugh Out Loud Comedy Tour and distribute licensed merchandise by signed comedians on Amazon with 2 day delivery. Compound Films is also producing Virtual Reality content and developing a “VR Venue” that will screen live VR comedy shows, TED talks, music concerts as well as 3D films produced in VR format. The VR Venue will be accessed through an app you can download on the app store and will pair with a VR headset that will enter you into the show. This technology suggests that the future for AMC might be to distribute movies in VR because headsets can be used at home while sitting next to thousands of people in digital rows of seats watching and chatting about the presentation in real time.

Media agency “Space15” created a digital artist using artificial intelligence by inserting melodies and lyrics into a program that takes all these elements and produces a final song. They created an artist named “Travis Bott” and this is what what they came up with.

The song even includes Scott’s trademark ad-libs, and has extremely Auto-Tuned vocals and absurd rhymes, such as:
I ain’t got the surfers ’cause I know I’m not that hard
But I got all my old bitches mad by the bars
Thinkin’ at the Grammys, in the family, I got stars
Try to put in the plane, but the blame be on the cars

Space150’s executive creative director, Ned Lampert told Adweek the project wasn’t created for any specific client. “We were sort of fascinated with like, ‘What if we tried to make a song—like an actual good song—by using AI and basically creative directing AI?‘” he said. “And so we chose Travis Scott just because he is just such a unique artist and he has a unique sound and everything sort of has an aesthetic to it, both audibly and visually.”
