Various participants on EAVE course
As Regional Marketing Officer (Midlands)…
“Sally’s creativity and organisational skills were invaluable to the regional I, Daniel Blake campaign. Her drive and passion for the project were evident throughout the campaign and she duly delivered a campaign above and beyond the original brief. Sally’s keen commercial sense meant that she ensured we eked out the very most from our marketing budget. In all, it was a pleasure working with Sally and we would certainly recommend her for future projects.”
Michael Guerrero, Marketing Coordinator – Film,  Entertainment One UK
As Distributor…
“Sally handled distribution, marketing and press for our documentary NG83: When We Were B Boys, securing our micro-budget film a run of screenings in ten cities across the UK plus international festival appearances and getting us media exposure in broadsheet newspapers and on national TV. She has worked tirelessly on this project and shown great commitment, imagination and tenacity in getting our film out there. We can’t recommend Sally highly enough and would love to work with her again in the future.”
Luke Scott, Director,  NG83 When We Were B Boys
As Producer…
“Sally has a fantastic ability to immerse herself in a project and very quickly get to grips with the detail and the challenges. Our project benefited greatly from having Sally’s eye for detail, professionalism and thoroughness. The end result was a fantastic short film that captured our organisation’s spirit and celebrated our achievements in a quirky style. Just what we were looking for!”
Lou Rudkin, Marketing Manager, Nottingham Community Housing Assoc.
As Production Manager…
“Sally was our Production Manager on a theatrical release support project and immediately got to grips with organising all the logistics of getting our iPad installations into venues across the country, working with suppliers, couriers and venues to ensure a presence for the Dreams of your Life project in cinemas and alternative venues. She managed demanding equipment issues and adapted schedules accordingly, keeping to deadlines and staying within the specified budget. At the end of the project she helped to prepare data for evaluation purposes.”
Anna Higgs, Head of Film4.0
As Producer of Marketing & Distribution…
“Sally and I worked together on the making and release of my film SOUND IT OUT. It’s been an amazing adventure – crowdfunding the budget for production, post-production, our premiere at SxSW and the UK theatrical tour, releasing the film on DVD, becoming the official film of Record Store Day and showing all over the world. Sally helped me make my crazy dreams a reality and helped me navigate the dicey waters of distribution. I hope to work with her again on my future films, I’m convinced – a PMD is an essential part of the team from day one.”
Jeanie Finlay – Director/Producer, Glimmer Films
As Community Manager on the Spirit of ’45 project…
“Sally’s work as Community Manager on our archive feature documentary resulted in the beginnings of an offline and online community for the film, along with a dedicated website with filmed interviews and a library of archive footage and stills to promote discussion and further participation. She delivered on time and within budget, providing regular updates on how the project was developing.”
Rebecca O’Brien – Producer, Sixteen Films
As Marketing Manager…
“Sally covered this role at Dance4 at a very busy time and managed a heavy workload. She was really effective at managing her time, with good attention to detail. She worked collaboratively with other venues, implemented a new CRM package for Dance4 and managed the marketing and publicity elements of our Nottdance Festival. Sally is a lovely person to work with too!”
Rachel Emmett, General Manager, Dance4
On crowdfunding consulting…
“Sally was instrumental in helping us set up a crowdfunding campaign for our short film Cold Warrior. Sally came to us with an extensive market knowledge, which meant that we could hit the ground running. We reached a combined social networking tally of over £4,000 – a figure we were delighted to hit.”
