We have a particular specialism in documentary and independent film PR as well as extensive experience in publishing, arts festivals, awards, live venues and cultural promotion. See full campaign evalutations here: https://issuu.com/tpr-media.
We have worked with some of the world's most outstanding documentary filmmakers. Among these are Nick Broomfeild, Kim Longinotto, Morgan Matthews, Brian Woods and Angus Macqueen. Working with award-winning companies such as Dartmouth Films, we have created impactful campaigns for films distributed in a number of ways from TV, cinematic, online, YouTube and VOD and understand how to create campaigns to fit different distribution models.
We have worked closely with commissioners and filmmakers at Channel 4, the BBC and major independent production companies for nearly two decades. We have successfully launched a broad range of cutting-edge drama, factual, arts and current affairs programming, including Top Boy, The Undateables, All in the Best Possible Taste with Grayson Perry, No Fire Zone: The Killing Fields of Sri Lanka and films for BBC Storyville and Channel 4's Unreported World.
We have carried out multiple impactful PR campaigns for books and publishing projects including Wildflowers for the Queen (Hugo Rittson Thomas) and The André Simon Food and Drink Book Awards – which we have promoted for the last six years. We understand how to create engaging publishing PR campaigns to both drive sales and engage in relevant debates.
We have represented some of the world's most influential and creative broadcast, media and arts organisations. These include Associated Press, Reuters and Doc Society. More recently, we have led the communications for the King's Head Theatre, London's first pub theatre, and Union Chapel, the iconic music venue, supporting them through the Covid‐19 crisis ensuring they have a voice.
We have managed the PR for Raindance – Europe's largest independent film festival – and represented dozens of films on the international festival circuit including the BFI London Film Festival, BFI Flare, Sheffield Doc/Fest and IDFA. tpr proudly sponsors the new SMART film festival – London's first international festival for smartphone filmmaking and also launched the science and culture festival – The Great Exhibition Road Festival in 2019.
