What is impact producing? It’s more than distribution, more than marketing. It’s about positioning a film to have substantial impact in the world.
I collaborate with directors and producers, setting strategy for outreach and engagement campaigns for documentary films. I bring fresh creative ideas and innovative solutions to each of my clients.
I also help with grant writing, fundraising, partnership building, audience engagement, copy writing, social media campaigns, distribution and brainstorming sessions.
I am a strategic and big picture thinker. My passion lies in elevating stories to prominence online and offline. I started Riley Creative with a belief in offering new and fresh perspectives on strategy and marketing, and a focus on delivering excellence to documentary filmmakers.
I found my way into impact producing via running political campaigns. I have two decades of experience running city council, mayoral, state representative, state senate and congressional races and led two statewide non-profit organizations as Field Director.
Running political campaigns consists of setting strategy, brainstorming, being flexible and focused, all skills which are needed as an impact producer.
Personally, I love travel, my friends, my cats, a really good espresso, good music and a good book.
