"I have been working with Ian at Initialize on my slate since 2010 and I can't recommend his services highly enough.

I've been fortunate enough to be part of several Initialize market trips / trade missions and one of the most impressive aspects of the service (and I think unique) is the range of ways in which Initialize can help. From important introductions to US talent on the LA trip, to updating European finance trends at the Berlin Film Festival, from setting up meetings with distributors in London to finding private equity through our ongoing conversations. I'm sure there are very few companies which can help a producer in such a broad way.

Initialize learned about Makar's priorities through the company production of OUTCAST. Using that knowledge, Initialize have been able to tailor its support for Makar very closely to the company's needs. This kind of dedicated service has been very important in keeping Makar informed and connected to the market and its constant changes."
