#TalonsOfVenice - From Hashtag to Inc.

February 20, 2014

A year ago in a post titled “New Strategy, New Structure.” we announced we were making some changes at Revolution Strategy. This included growing the business into new markets.

Since then we’ve taken a few trips to California, attended some insightful conferences, made some connections and done our research.

Throughout this process, I’ve often been asked, “what’s with the hashtag #TalonsOfVenice?” Well, what started out as an idea, is now a company.

Say hello to Talons of Venice Entertainment Inc.

Together with our friends at Hemmings Films, Talons will develop and produce content for lifestyle programs, which will be pitched to production companies and broadcasters in Canada and, in time, worldwide.

On top of all this, we’re pleased to jointly announce we have inked a deal with CCI Entertainment, one of Canada’s leading independent production and distribution companies, to advance these lifestyle programs and get ‘em on air. In fact, we have four programs now in development.

Content is king – and we’re excited to be moving into this space. This fits because our team has the knowledge, skill and passion to expand our award-winning creative capabilities into the television and film industry. The fact that we’re diving in with our friends at Hemmings Films is just the icing on the cake. I mean, who doesn’t love Greg Hemmings?

I know I speak for both Greg and I when I say that our teams are capable of producing world-class content from right here in New Brunswick.

Our core agency will stay solid through our growth. We love our clients, and to be sure we continue to offer them the very best service in the business, we’ve been expanding our team.

New Brunswick will always be our home and central to our business. We love having reasons to keep talent here and attract talent from away. That won’t change.

We’re very excited to transform what, one year ago, was a vision and hashtag, into this new line of business for us. Check out more at talonsofvenice.com.

Stay tuned.
