Marketing Journey: Holes In The Sky: The Sean Miller Story

This is the marketing journey of Ash Hamilton’s film, Holes In The Sky. Last year, I was lucky enough to join Ash on his journey as he brought me on as one of the film’s producers.    I’ve outlined our marketing journey for this fantastic movie with tons of media coverage through 2021 and 2022.   Our flagship websites Horror-Fix and Horrornews.net lead the charge with the help of Marketing Macabre partner horror media outlets, Horror Society, Dread Central, Horror Patch, Horror Fuel, The Horror Times, Britflicks, Horror-Asylum, Horror Screams Video Vault, The Slasher App, and many others.

If you have a film and would like Marketing Macabre to carve out a similar path, please contact Michael Joy at joyhorror@msn.com for a consultation.
