The Marketing Solution

ESX delivers a solution to film makers, producers and retail investors.

THE MARKETING PROBLEM

Domestic film marketing spend on TV rose from $1.7 billion in 2014 to $2.36 billion in 2015  (39% increase) – 5x the rate of box office growth during the same period (Source: Variety)

Consumers are overwhelmed by entertainment options and are harder to reach and track. As a  result, traditional marketing has become more expensive, inefficient and has constrained profitability

This trend is unsustainable as domestic marketing costs continue to rise, while domestic box office remains stagnant and fragmentation continues to increase the cost necessary to cut through the clutter

THE ESX SOLUTION

Engage fans over the life of a project and turn them into direct promoters of a project with a vested interest in its success

As such, ESX becomes a value-add not only to producers and financiers, but to marketers looking for a more efficient way to reach the movie-going public

Entertainment offerings have an inherent investor curiosity and attraction, and ESX will supplement this interest with targeted, efficient marketing strategies

Skill House – The Movie

Skill House will be the first film to be “listed” on the entertainment stock exchange (ESX), allowing users to invest in the film and trade in or out of the film and its upside. Skill House, starring social media personality Bryce Hall, takes aim at social media influencers and promises to be an uncompromising look at popularity and what new celebrities are prepared to do to achieve it. It will be filmed at the Sway House in Bel Air, which has been made famous by several of Tik Tok’s biggest stars. It will skew the landscape of young celebrities who are willing to go to any extreme for a “click.”

  • This fills a vacuum for filmmakers and producers that are seeking more efficient and transparent financing options.

The movie industry is huge, with global box office receipts reaching a new high of $42.5 billion in 2019. However, this large figure does not imply that all films are profitable; in fact, many films wind up being loser bets. Indeed, despite the fact that thousands of films are produced each year, only a small fraction of those are developed into feature films with the large budgets we associate with the Hollywood film industry. Although the rare independent, low-budget film will break out and become a smash hit (“Napoleon Dynamite,” “Super Size Me,” and “Paranormal Activity” are all examples of low-budget blockbusters), the majority of blockbusters are on the high-budget end.

A large studio film typically costs roughly $65 million to create. However, production costs do not include distribution and marketing, which adds another $35 million or so to the entire cost of producing and marketing a blockbuster film, bringing the total cost to around $100 million.

According to new study from Neustar shared with Marketing Dive, digital media drove 46 percent of movie box office sales despite accounting for only 14 percent of studio marketing budgets. The study looked at more than 70 U.S. films across various marketing channels, including TV, web, display, online video, paid Facebook advertisements, out-of-home, radio, print, and paid search, with a total marketing spend of $1.8 billion.
