Compound Films has started the year strong introducing new packages that will help new artists and new business owners. The “Big Business” package includes a professional video or commercial with printed t shirts and a website with an online store. For music artists, this helps them build out their merchandise and a way for artists to build out their customer database. This means they can keep in constant communication with website members and customers to promote new projects and merchandise. This set up creates the opportunity for an artist to promote their merchandise in their music videos and helps direct new customers to their website for fast and easy purchases with discounted offers.

Business owners in various industries can benefit the most because all growing companies require marketing material and team uniforms. The best way to make an impression is a professional website with great photography of your team wearing your company’s logo. Spreading the word about your business can be challenging without a visual that best explains your company’s services and solutions. It is important for new businesses to be able to explain their business in a few seconds while capturing the attention of potential customers.

Our studio has boomed since the open in late 2021 as a result of our peerspace.com partnership. Located in the skyline district of downtown Houston on 720 Rusk St. Houston, TX 77002. We have helped produce numerous podcasts with high quality audio as well as high resolution video for youtube. Our most popular bookings have consisted of photoshoots in our studio and various locations inside our historic building. The reception from the public has been amazing as we have recently been contacted to host a film crew producing a documentary for Discovery Channel.

We are excited to continue to grow with the downtown Houston scene and establish it as a filmmaker hub. Our studio is designed to create a livestream podcast, music video, documentary, commercial, or VFX special effects. There is a lobby that can be used as a green room for food, snacks, and drinks during big shoots in our studio. The great thing about our location is that it is surrounded by restaurants and a high end wine bar is located downstairs in the building. The biggest perk is that the film equipment inside the studio is there for use during bookings as well as the RGB lights overhead.

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.
