Inception Media Group Opens Office in London, UK

Los Angeles, Calif. – 04 April 2013 – Los Angeles-based Inception Media Group, LLC has opened an office in London that will allow the company to expand its digital content aggregation efforts internationally. Industry veteran Maura Ford has been hired to oversee and manage the company’s growing international digital distribution business from the newly opened office. 

Maura Ford is a film sales executive with 25 years industry experience working for Lakeshore, The Samuel Goldwyn Company, Franchise Pictures and Fireworks Pictures before moving to London to concentrate on business affairs for HanWay Films and Content Media Corporation. 

Inception Media Group holds direct selling relationships with many of the world’s top U.S.-based online digital retailers including iTunes, Netflix, Amazon and GooglePlay. Establishing a physical presence in Europe enhances Inception’s ability to offer international distributors, television networks and independent producers an efficient and cost-effective way to make their content available in their respective markets as well as other territories around the world. Inception will also be increasing the number of online and broadcast media channels it distributes to throughout Europe.

There is a growing demand among digital retailers for content suppliers to provide a steady flow of quality films and entertainment programming across all platforms,” said Burgess Wilson, executive vice president of operations, Inception Media Group, LLC. “While large distributors and studios negotiate their own direct deals, smaller distribution companies and independent producers generally require a champion who can represent and distribute their content to the various digital retailers and broadcast media platforms. Inception is perfectly positioned to be that champion.”

"I'm thrilled to be part of Inception's international expansion and digital strategy," said Maura Ford, president of Inception Media Group - International. "Our ability to offer filmmakers a digital pipeline for their films is invaluable as consumers continue to embrace the transition from packaged goods to digital." 

Inception Media Group, LLC is based in Los Angeles and is a diversified media company specializing in the production, acquisition and distribution of motion pictures and other filmed entertainment across all media platforms and channels of distribution.
