The Courtyard Hereford, New Media Production Partners
Date of release: 21 May 2021
The Courtyard Hereford theatre has just appointed Wild Edric Media as their official Media Production Partner, providing a range of film production and live-streaming services to the venue.
Both companies have worked together over the last few years on a range of media projects including the streaming of a number of productions including the Courtyard’s annual pantomime. This new partnership will see Wild Edric Media creating a new range of content for the theatre, which will include not only an increase in production streaming for an online viewing audience, but also promotional trailer films, promotional videos and infommercials.
Jessica Prosser, Head of Marketing and Sales at the Courtyard said “We're really excited to start streaming more of our productions to reach wider audiences and those unable to visit us in person. Starting a Media Partnership with Wild Edric was a natural step after their fantastic support over the last few years. Reflecting on the tough year we've all had, it's more important than ever for the creative industry to work together to rebuild and continue delivering a fantastic arts programme to the community”
Carl Walker, Managing Director at Wild Edric Media added “As a media company, we have many years of film production and live-streaming expertise under our belt. But what makes us different is that much of our team have a theatrical background, which means we really understand a theatre venue environment, for example working with the in-house technical team on the best lighting and sound needed for a live-stream. We believe our streaming service enables theatres to extend their digital arts services to reach new audiences and create new revenue streams with streamed pay per view and subscription packages. We are thrilled to be working with Courtyard Hereford as their Media Partner, which will also see us using our long experience of creating cinematic trailer films to promote stage productions for the Courtyard’.
Wild Edric Media will also be responsible for increasing the Courtyard’s accessibility programme by adding over-the-top subtitles, BSL Signing and Audio Described services to recorded and streamed shows, ensuring productions can be enjoyed by all online viewers.
