InDemand Productions is at the2014 Toronto International Film Festival to film celebrity interviews in partnership with Indiewire, as a means to help stoke buys for films in their video-on-demand window.
The production arm of the pre-eminent distributor of transactional movies to Movies On Demand on cable is shooting these interviews at TIFF that will be edited and distributed to top cable providers, including Xfinity (Comcast), Time Warner Cable, Cox Communications and Bright House Networks to help them drive customer awareness and buys of these titles when they hit the VOD window. This promotional content gets participating films added exposure during their MOD premieres.
All told, the interviews can be seen in over 50 million homes, either through cable barker channels, system websites, in social media and other digital outlets, such as an InDemand's ongoing partnership with independent film website Indiewire.
Within the past year alone, the company sat down with over 100 stars, including some of Tinseltown's toniest, Cate Blanchett, Sir Ben Kingsley, Paul Rudd, Daniel Radcliffe, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, Jessica Alba, Chris Evans, Salma Hayek, Nicolas Cage and the cast of Game of Thrones.
