THE REAL REASON WHY THE $1.5 MILLION DOLLAR, LOW BUDGET, LGBT INDIE FILM “MOONLIGHT” WON BEST PICTURE AT THE OSCARS IS BECAUSE OF ITS BRILLIANT STORYTELLING & UN-TRADITIONAL MARKETING PLAN:

______________________

  1. It Was Backed by Movie Star BRAD PITT’S Plan B Production Company in Hollywood!
  2. It Was Directed by BARRY JENKINS, A New Filmmaker With Only 2 Projects On His Resume!
  3. It’s A Coming Of Age Story About A Young Black Kid Growing Up In The ’70s, During The War-on-drugs Era!
  4. It Explores The Themes Of MASCULINITY, SEXUALITY, AND IDENTITY, and The Main Characters Struggle to Find Out Who He Really Is In Relation To These Issues!
  5. It Opened In Select Theaters During The Release of Major Blockbuster Movie Releases, and Survived!
  6. It Had A VERY COORDINATED FILM FESTIVAL STRATEGY: 1ST, Releasing In Colorado’s TELLURIDE Festival, Where Director Barry Jenkins Often Worked, and It Is A Stepping Stone For AWARD POTENTIAL FILMS. 2. It Played At TORONTO INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL, Another Award Hopeful Festival. 3. It Then Played At NEW YORK FILM FESTIVAL – Also An Award Hopeful Festival For Great Independent Films To Get Great Pre-Buzz from Film Critics, Journalists, and Major Distributors Looking For The Next Breakout Indie FILM.
  7. It Had A Kick-Ass Movie Trailer That Showcased The Actors, and Teased The Viewers With Just Enough PLOT Information To Make Them Want To See The Film!
  8. It Had Amazing Cinematography Work by James Laxton!
  9. It Had Strong Talent Performances by ACTORS Naomie Harris, Mahershala Ali, Ashton Sanders, Andre Hollan, Tre Rhodes, Alex R. hibbert, and Janelle Monae!
  10. It Had A Beautiful POSTER That Depicted The main Character Face In Various Stages Growing Up, To Hint At What The Movie Was About – COMING OF AGE!
  11. THE KEY ART DESIGN OF THE TITLE ON POSTER & PHOTOGRAPHY FROM THE FILM SHOOT MATCHED THE FILM’S TONE!
  12. It Had Rave Reviews, Stellar Quotes, & Recommendations On SOCIAL MEDIA… Leading Up To It’s Carefully Planned Release Date!
  13. Multiple Styles Of The Awesome Photography, With Amazing Color Tones Were Release On The Internet and In Reviews!
  14. Major Hollywood Celebrities Supported and Shared The Movie’s PROMOS With Their Audiences On Social Media, and Showed Up For The Big Premiere!
  15. THE CONCLUSION TO THE MARKETING STRATEGY OF “MOONLIGHT” IS THAT, THE FILMMAKERS TOLD A GREAT STORY ON A SHOESTRING BUDGET, WITH HOLLYWOOD STYLE MOVIE-MAKING TECHNIQUES… AND WITH THE EFFORTS FROM CREW MEMBERS WHO BELIEVED IN THIS PROJECT!
  16. AND… THERE BELIEF IN THIS PROJECT GOT ENOUGH STREET BUZZ FOR BRAD PITT’S PLAN B PRODUCTION COMPANY TO JUMP ON BOARD, GET A MAJOR STUDIO BEHIND IT… WHICH TOOK THEM ALL THE WAY TO THE  OSCARS – AND THEY WON!!!
