BrandCinema is a new digital development and production company that seeks to create partnerships and collaboration between story writers, online sponsors, and digital agencies. They come to South by Southwest (SXSW) 2012 with a variety of new shows featuring some of the most prominent screen writers in the digital domain today including Tina Cesa Ward, Daryn Strauss and Andrew Leitch.
At SXSW they are hoping to find new sponsorship and new platforms to carry their content. They have yet to introduce an array of strategies they have devised to promote their forthcoming creative works. What BrandCinema hopes to create is strong story influenced worlds that encompass the entire experience from advertising to every other element along the way.
