What people don't realize when they consider hiring an independent publicist, is that often that person has a collection of wise publicists and companies they collaborate with behind the scenes. One of my mentors and colleagues, Marcia Groff, is one such publicist I work with.
We met when I was promoting the World Animation Celebration awhile ago and we've been fast friends ever since. She helped me promote my own Short Pictures International Film Festival, then the Penton Media film festival I created and produced, and even now with various clients and vice versa.
We were talking last week how she needs a web presence so more people know she exists and since my blog gets recognition in Google, here she is! We have different skills and strengths which combined together make a very strong team. We would love to help you on any projects you might have and look forward to working with you!
