Bitmax, the digital media management and licensing company, has signed a multi-year agreement to provide content management and services to High Octane Pictures (HOP), a full-service film distribution and sales agency that cultivates relationships with distributors, financiers, talent agencies and various strategic entertainment partnerships to sell and distribute motion pictures.
As part of the deal, Bitmax will help High Octane maximize the revenue potential of their titles across the international VoD landscape, helping them get carriage on international platforms while advising them on monetizing their unique slate of content across a growing list of downstream distribution channels and partners.
“Bitmax is a demonstrated leader in content orchestration and distribution, and we look forward to working with them across all business models from TVoD to AVoD,” said High Octane Pictures’ company president and founder, Galen Christy.
The HOP team draws upon their vast deal-making experience with a dedication to innovative sales and marketing techniques. HOP has brokered deals in over 80 countries across the world, focusing on sales, acquisition and distribution of completed content specifically made for kids, family and young adults as well as supporting and giving exposure to completed films that tend to be forgotten in an over saturated market, specifically documentaries, LGBTQ content, art house films and dramas.
“Bitmax is the perfect partner for High Octane Pictures, as they have great content and we have the technology and expertise to monetize it across VOD platforms.” said Jim Riley, Bitmax CRO. “We love their ethos of putting the film maker first and promoting and distributing compelling independent films.”
