Sycamore Entertainment is a full-service motion picture distribution entity and provides the entertainment industry with high quality services including:
There are many high quality independent and foreign films available for the North American market due to the closing of many distribution companies dedicated to releasing this product. Paramount Vantage, Fine Line Features, Warner Independent Pictures, Picture House and Think Films are the more prominent companies that have left this space, and the Weinstein Company has just announced that they will reduce their releases by 50% in 2010.
The producers of the films that are typically served by the departing distributors have less opportunity to realize any income from the U.S. market at the moment. Sycamore's new, innovative business model is not only an attractiv and viable solution for these film producers, the model can also provide a return between 40% - 70% on the P&A invested for each project.
Sycamore also provides full distribution services for wider release commercial films. This product will be sourced from producers as well as the talent agencies. Agencies such as CAA and WME represent projects that are important to their clients but have not secured major studio deals. Theatrical distribution is extremely important to them, and they generally provide their own P&A funds. Tim Allen, Renee Zellweger, and Michelle Pfeiffer are recent examples of this situation, and their agencies actively tried to secure a theatrical release on their behalf.
