Here’s a few words about the experience of working with me:
Helen: Rebekah is an extremely smart and focused creative who is equally at home in both community and commercial settings. She is a natural born collaborator who operates with extreme diligence and great imagination and has a fantastic eye for detail.
Helen Meller, Former Director, Hebden Bridge Arts Festival
Adam & Christian: Our experience dealing with you has been brilliant from start to finish. You have been incredibly supportive in many ways and provided some important constructive feedback which we took onboard. Thank you all for being so patient with us and providing all the technical advice from export formats to poster dimensions.
The screening on the night was everything we hoped for and we were both impressed with just how slick and organised the entire event was.
Adam Deeks and Christian Wilkinson, Yorkshire Frontiers
Ray: We were a newly set up cinema and were able to engage Rebekah as a cinema consultant as part of a development award we had received.
I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Rebekah to any cinema operator whatever their stage of development, whether it is to build up your knowledge as a new venture or review your operations as an established one. I’d estimate that Rebekah advanced our development by at least six months. She put us in contact with useful participants and reviewed our processes that eliminated many of our initial naiveties to leave us in a position that after 9 months of opening we were showing the right films at the right time to our audiences and that represented a significant improvement on our performance from the early days.
Ray Hughes, Trustee, Wellington Orbit
David: Rebekah has been one of my greatest supporters both as a filmmaker and as a distributor. It has been very useful to discuss with her decisions that I have had to make during the editing stage of film if I get stuck on something.
I was very lucky that she allowed my latest film ‘Getting Away With Murders’ to be tried out at Hebden Bridge Picture House because I had a very important decision to make which could only be satisfactorily answered if the film played before an audience.
She has also been extremely helpful in suggesting other cinemas that I should talk to regarding my films, and with general advice.
When you’re a filmmaker and distributor you see things from a different perspective and having an exhibitor’s eye is very important. Often by the time most exhibitors comment on a production it is far too late because it is finished. Rebekah’s willingness to engage with my film during the editing stage was extremely useful.
