We also have relationships with many of the key providers of cable video on demand (“VOD”), transactional video on demand (“TVOD”), subscription video on demand (“SVOD”), electronic sell through (“EST”), ad supported video on demand (“AVOD”) and electronic rental platforms in the U.S.

Our team works closely with each of our client-partners on the most optimum strategy to monetize their content through rights licensing. We identify and secure the right distribution partnerships, and then negotiate the best deals we can on our client-partner’s behalf.

We manage all windows to maximize revenues downstream, offer 100% transparency, timely reporting, caps on expenses and itemized deductions, and encourage client-partner involvement in the release and marketing of their film or series.

Our focus is star-driven multi-cultural films and series that resonate with the multi-cultural, urban culture enthusiast audiences. We endeavor to serve as a culture focused content aggregator with all the major cable and digital platforms and serve as a scalable partner to new media outlets interested in licensing content targeting the global multi-cultural audience.

As technology advances and new distribution opportunities arise, Hidden Empire Releasing will continue to stay at the forefront, providing exceptional service and access to our client-partners.

We thank you in advance for your consideration, and we look forward to working with you.
