NETWORKS

Intermat has the experience to help new digital and cable networks articulate their vision and find their place in the media universe. By working with Networks to review its sales material, marketing strategies and research Intermat helps shape presentations, offerings and proposals. Intermat did an extensive consulting assignment for Animal Planet International, reviewing the points where advertising sales, marketing and programming intersected, making recommendations on how to increase the success chances for the network’s advertising sales, based on information gathered from meetings with internal and external constituencies.

PRODUCTION COMPANIES

Production companies, like people, can get trapped in their comfort zones. They often become dependent on supplying a narrow range of programming to one or two networks and fail to fully capitalize on their skill sets to develop new programming and network relationships. Intermat, Inc. is committed to helping companies such as these broaden their reach, expand their offerings and find new markets for previously produced content. We have also helped companies secure co-production funding, find international distribution partners and explore home video opportunities.
