David Hancock and Rick Frisham will be interviewing Dr. Ken Atchity about his new brand-launch division of Atchity Entertainment International, FINISH LINE (www.aeionline.com--click on AEI's Brand Management).
Based on AEI's experience launching Ripley's Believe It Or Not! books and film, the Noire franchise, Meg, Demon Keeper, and 3 Men Seeking Monsters, Ken founded Finish Line a few months ago to partner with storytellers with franchise potential and aspirations. His ideal client is someone who intends to launch a life-long BUSINESS around her or his brand, and who knows that experience and contacts can focus and accelerate the launch. Currently Finish Line has partnered with Nik Halik, The Thrillionaire, to launch the Thrillionaires brand as well as working with Ian Holt & Dacre Stoker's Dracula: The Un-Dead to re-launch the Dracula brand worldwide.
As Ken says, "We're living in the most exciting era possible for writers and creators-a time in which intellectual property has become even more lucrative than real property. Who would you rather be, Bill Gates or Donald Trump?"
Join us to hear Ken's views on the importance of branding, and to ask him questions about what the process involves.
