The Scoop – An affectionate and frequently hilarious Hollywood satire
It’s the golden age of Hollywood, and behind-the-scenes fixer Eddie Mannix (Josh Brolin) has his work cut out making sure that the stars don’t lose their shine. A typical day includes covering up the pregnancy of unmarried actress DeeAnna Moran (Scarlett Johansson), fending off twin gossip columnists Thora and Thessaly Thacker (Tilda Swinton), and persuading pretentious director Laurence Laurentz (Ralph Fiennes) that singing cowboy Hobie Doyle (Alden Ehrenreich) is the perfect leading man for his new film.

Engaging Community Groups
For community groups, our free resources provide not only fun activities, but also the chance to talk about the themes and issues raised by films. Community groups of all kinds can use Damaris resources to meet their own vision and aims, and be enriched by what we have to offer.We think cinemagoing should be a social experience, which is why we encourage people to see films in groups, using our resources before or after the event. As most community groups already meet weekly or monthly, this is a perfect activity for groups to enjoy together. Our resources help groups to build relationships, share ideas, and engage in conversations about the things that matter to them. Excited about what free film resources could bring to your community group? Want the chance to win great prizes, go to special screenings, and even get tickets to red carpet premieres?

Working with Film Companies
For film companies, we can deliver grassroots promotion to increase opening weekend box office sales. Our unique strategy engages community groups through original high-quality resources, which drive film interest and translate into box office numbers. Damaris has a proven record for delivering this kind of promotion.
Damaris encourages community groups to go to the cinema together, using our resources before or after the event. As most community groups already meet on a weekly or monthly basis, these kind of trips can become a regular part of their activities. Our resources aim to generate a conversation around the themes and messages of a film, encouraging audience engagement and positive word-of-mouth.
Each set of resources is tailored to engage community groups who have been identified as having an interest in the themes or subject matter of the film. The unique strategy involves direct promotion to these community groups in the target market. Key leaders are visited personally in the campaign, along with emails, phone calls and magazine editorials.
This engagement of key community leaders creates a ‘ripple effect’ out to community group members, building momentum towards delivering new group box office sales on opening weekend.
