MOFILM

  MOFILM connects brands to a vibrant community of filmmakers telling and sharing their stories across the world.

We call our approach PEOPLE POWERED MARKETING delivering inspirational films better, faster and cheaper than traditional models.

MOFILM is a ‘beautiful hybrid’ between a creative agency and a crowd sourced production company. With our lean but experienced team of creatives, strategists and project management, we turn around smart thinking, strategy and creative routes which we then brief to our community of filmmakers to respond to with ideas and treatments.  

Crowdsourced is what sets us apart from agencies as we provide a diversity of ideas from specialist filmmakers - from scriptwriters, directors, editors and producers through to VR, AR, 360 specialists - across the world and present a multitude of routes in for a client to choose from. In effect, you have 10,000 creators at your fingertips vs. one creative department.

Curation is what sets us apart from other crowdsourced platforms and production companies. Our strategists, creatives and project managers craft the strategy, the brief, hand select the right filmmakers and influencers for each project, and carefully curate the whole process from client briefing right through to the final edit.  Nothing goes out to a client without us being confident in the calibre of the creative output.

In other words, we are the best of both worlds. Smart thinking, creative excellence and a diversity of authentic and relevant ideas which we turn around both nimbly and cost-efficiently.

ISBA will be working with PwC to create greater transparency and accountability in media. One of the first major projects is to work together to develop the ISBA framework media services contract, furthering industry wide adoption, improving trust and transparency and hence strengthening client & agency partnerships. The framework contract was launched last year and version two is planned to be released early 2018.
 
In addition PwC will work with ISBA to share their considerable expertise across assurance, ad-tech and audience measurement with ISBA members.
