Anna Sissons To Run New Distribution Division For Pulse
Production outfit Pulse is launching an in-house distribution arm with Anna Sissons appointed film distribution manager. The new division aims to create a dynamic distribution pipeline by exploiting social media and leveraging brand partnerships, as well as staging events around film releases. Sissons was formerly outreach coordinator at Dogwoof. Pulse CEO Thomas Benski calls this a “strategic move to take control of the promotion and distribution of the slate of fan and event-based projects that Pulse has been producing for the last few years. These films require a different type of release strategy and we feel more suited to fully leverage those audiences.” The first film to be released under the new banner will be Shut Up And Play The Hits. A full slate will be announced in the fall. The company has offices in New York, LA, Paris and London and is planning further international expansion.
