Hello Cool World Heading to Bioneers next weekend - Our work with The Corporation Spawns New Distribution Model
By Katherine Dodds
A MOVIE GUIDE TO OCCUPY WALL STREET! The Corporation one of the Top Ten Films that explain the birth of the movement.
As Colette and I head next weekend to the Bioneers Conference, we are working our business vision, inspired largely by our decade-long involvement with the creation and marketing of The Corporation film. Follow the converstation on Twitter: @CorporationFilm.
Hello Cool World is excited to be expanding the services we offer to folks with a cause, including what we are calling "Fairer Trade" distribution and campaigns. We had our start with The Corporation, and now MORE than ever we realize how important our work with this film is, and what an influence it has --just yesterday, Reuters "A Movie Guide to Occupy Wall Street" listed The Corporation in the TOP TEN films that 'explain the birth of a movement." This is very fitting as it comes just as we were working on outreach for our focus-testing of the new shorter cut of the film in three parts for high school students that we are the distributor for. We will give a higher return than is typical to the filmmakers, and we will use our profits to sustain the movement to get the film in the hands of the next generation.
Corporation For the Next Generation:
Students, teachers, community leaders! Join us to launch an online movement and Corporation Clubs in schools.
• Partner with us to promote the film to local schools
• Sponsor educational copies and classroom sets of Corporation Club kits
• Support and fund the development of an online engagement strategy and interactive educational portal to engage high school students
Join The Corporation Community!
We are happy to share with our followers and fans the beginning of Hello Cool World's business planning process, inspired by our deep desire to do business differently.
Hello Cool World Distribution & campaigns
For Hello Cool World, campaigns are mission critical. Whether we are using a film to launch a movement, or creating a campaign from the ground up, we care about the long-term engagement of communities around a cause.
As social entrepreneurs we run a triple bottom line company. On our film distribution side we are working to define fairer trade for films with a social message. We offer a higher return to the filmmakers and dedicate our profits to sustaining campaigns for the cause.
We are seeking strategic partners, funders and investors who share our vision.
HelloCoolWorld.com is expanding the tools that sustain our campaigns. Our built-in networks add collective value to everything we do.
We are planning a total HelloCoolWorld.com rebuild in order to offer a set of easy-to-use tools tailored to community campaigns. We offer a full set of services, from creative concept to campaign delivery.
As social marketers (with a side of social justice), we understand the value of social branding and always work with our intended audiences to inspire, empower and create tools for self-organizing.
