what´s cameo


“Cameo” is the trade mark of Cameo Media S.L., a contents management company. Its mission is to market films, documentaries, plays and musicals in DVD format via traditional channels, on-line and through new media channels.
Cameo Media is an independent company founded in July 2003 by several Spanish film producers and distributors, Atla Films, Wanda Visión, Tornasol Films and Continental Productions and Juan Carlos Tous , a seasoned professional with a successful career in the audiovisual sector.
Golem Distribution joined with Cameo in March 2004. In June 2005 El Deseo (Pedro and Agustín's Almodóvar company) decided to join Cameo. All of them give us a great position in the Spanish market.
Cameo Media is a company that aims to manage video, TV and Internet rights in order to obtain the best results for producers, as well as benefits for all concerned, including third parties.


Why was it created?

In the video market, not all genres were covered. The market for independent movies and film documentaries was a niche that Cameo focused on. There was no independent company that specialized in and worked with video, Tv and Internet rights. At this time, those products were distributed by large companies that didn't give the required attention to these rights. Because of this Cameo was created.


In addition:

There were no companies at this time orientated toward new technologies that distributed rights in formats, VOD or downloading. There were niches in the market to be filled and audiences were showing a clear tendency toward independent, auteur, documentary film and minority material. To summarize, Cameo started out in a market with excellent prospects.


Objectives

Our main purpose is to bring these independent, auteur, documentary films closer to the audiences. Always in the best possible condition.


For the companies providing the rights:

Our objective is to establish lasting relations based on mutual trust and benefits. We want to be the best video , Tv and Internet distribution company, the one that does the best for their product and makes satisfaction guaranteed. For our clients:
Our objective is based on offering them a meticulously prepared, top-quality product. They are our gateway to the end customer, which is why we aim to establish solid but flexible relations, always paying close attention to their needs and expectations.


For the filmmakers:

They are our main reason for being. Without them, we would have no films, no plays, no documentaries, nothing that Cameo could market. We want to encourage them to continue making their films, following the process all the way through and helping us develope the DVD, a task that, up to now, just a few people had access to.


For the consumers:

Our product and our contents has a loyal audience. We know they are cultured, demanding people who know about the sector. Quality is our main aim for them.


Differential Values

We offer new quality contents that are not aimed at the mass market, but rather at a market of large minorities. Our catalogue contains titles from a variety of artistic genres: Independent films ("Goodbye Lenin", "The live of the others", "The chorus", "Volver"…), documentaries ("Fahrenheit 9/11", "Super size me", "Road to Guantanamo" “Earth” “Planet Earth”), musicals ("Metal", “Kurt Cobain" “I’m your man” “Loquillo leyenda urbana”), TV series ("Fawlty Towers", "The Office", "Black Adder" “Berlin Alexander Platz”…)

This is new because up to now, no one has exploited this type of auteur product in optimum conditions, which is why there is a great lack of them on the market.

We are totally committed to the quality of the product and the service. We are well aware that the product we offer must meet the high quality standards demanded by both filmmakers and producers, as well as our customers. That is why we pay great attention to the quality of both picture and sound, and to all the tiny details are what make us different.
