Happy Monday! It's time to meet a new executive 🤝 This week we are chatting with Stan Hum aka @SappyStan who's the EVP of Business Development and Distribution at Brain Power Studio. He's going to give us the inside scoop on what's it's like to sell romance movies and television series. LUV: What does a distribution executive do? Stan Hum: Our distribution team constantly evaluates the programming needs of our existing partners around the world (Hallmark, Netflix, Vizio, Super Channel, Channel 5, M6, etc) especially in the rom-com and holiday genres. By understanding the marketplace, we can pivot if there is a shift from seasonal to non-seasonal content needs or if additional creative elements need to be changed. We are always looking for pre-buys before we greenlight projects. We also look for new opportunities/platforms that we can place our existing catalogue or forge new partnerships for original programming. Basically we look for the deals, negotiate the deals, and then close the deals.
