About Brooklyn

ABOUT BORKEN CREATIVE

We are a spanking new independent production and marketing company located in Toronto, Canada. With a combined twelve years of experience as storytellers, producers, and marketers, we’re branching out on our own to produce raw and authentic original content while helping indie filmmakers market their IP.

ORIGINAL CONTENT FOR SCREENS

At their core, the stories we want to tell are driven by emotionally powerful storytelling from a diverse chorus of voices. Stories that can be raunchy, loud, sad, queer AF, neurodiverse – you name it – with an emphasis on authentic narratives written by members of traditionally underrepresented communities. Check out our new property in development, SPACE GAY.

MARKETING SOLUTIONS FOR INDIE PRODUCTIONS

Unlike traditional digital marketers, we know what it takes to succeed in the Canadian funding landscape. Whether it’s helping to tailor your audience discoverability plan with funders and their budget constraints in mind, or guiding your IP audience messaging strategy, our marketing solutions will save you time and energy.

IN DEVELOPMENT

SPACE GAY

SPACE: THE FINAL FRONTQUEER

BAE SEKSHAL and ORACLE CAIN, Elder Queers and veterans of the Great Bisexual-Pansexual Civil War, are on a mission to gather a ragtag diverse ensemble of baby queers from each faction of the post-construction Queerdom FABULAR in search of the Unity Crystal, a legendary weapon that will aid their ongoing battles against the evil TERFADER, Normtroopers, and gentrification. But when the crew of the spaceship Divine pick up CHRISTRAH, a refugee from the planet STIGMITA, along with her boyfriend ‘I am JUST an Ally’ BOB, queer-infighting, ransomware, and sentient shag carpeting threaten to tear this newly formed coalition apart.

MARKETING SOLUTIONS FOR INDIE PRODUCTIONS

Digital marketing agencies excel at targeting products and services to consumers for businesses. But as an indie filmmaker, your customers are funders and audiences — not skincare or appliance buyers. Film production marketing is an entirely different ballgame; not only will conventional marketing methods fail to hit the mark — they can also conflict with the maze of funder budgetary requirements, putting your production at risk.

That’s where we come in. Borken Creative is all about marketing for producers, by producers. As storytellers, screen content producers, and digital marketers familiar with the Canadian funding landscape, we’re uniquely positioned to work within those parameters because we’ve been through it ourselves. We combine that first-hand experience with storytelling-based marketing and branding strategies to get you off the ground and take your production to the next level.

MARKETING FOR PRODUCERS, BY PRODUCERS

Marketing and audience development strategy solutions tailored for indie producers by storytellers, content producers, and marketers who know the Canadian screen content funding landscape inside and out.

SAVE TIME & ENERGY

As a DIY indie producer, you know the story you want to tell and how to make a quality production. Unfortunately, there’s a ton of misinformation out there, and you probably don’t know where to start. We’ll provide the strategy and guidance to help you market your IP your way, saving you time and energy.

STORYTELLING-DRIVEN MESSAGING

Businesses sell products. You sell stories. As creators ourselves, we know how to reach your prospective audiences with powerful storytelling-driven marketing that captures their attention and stimulates their imagination.

FUNDER STRATEGY GUIDANCE

Navigating the maze of funder requirements and budgetary constraints can be daunting for even the most experienced producer. We can help indie filmmakers tailor their messaging strategy and audience discoverability plans the right way – with funders’ requirements in mind.
