We make it simple
Once in awhile we stumble upon a story that stops us in our tracks. We're always working to bring new stories to life and keep our right side of the brain cranking.
We love to help other filmmakers take their film and campaign to the next level. We're always up to helping tackle a good story that's been well told.
The process of developing the roadmap to bring your film to the world - from finding partners who can help generate buzz, to harnessing the right strategy so a film can go beyond the screen.
We are about action. We are about inspiration. We are about telling stories that can change the world.via The QLP Team

The key is the objective, not the technology
How do you build buzz, create community and build a strategic campaign for your film? How do you make sure that your film is branded to be able to speak for itself? If you are finding yourself having a hard time seeing beyond picture lock, take a look at our team's strategic approach with Sin by Silence.
The core objective of a social justice documentary is not a distribution deal, money, or notoriety. The objective is your audience. Does the audience engage, learn and grow with your characters so that they are ready to make a difference when the lights come up?
Many films measure their success by box office numbers, while social issue documentaries must measure impact by their ability to create social change. With the box offices focusing on dollars and cents, how do you grasp the seemingly immeasurable impact of social change?
FILM FESTIVAL STRATEGY
The film festival environment has changed! What used to be a huge platform for independent films, is now bringing fewer picture “deals” and even less of an opportunity to connect with an audience. So, how do you still make an impact?
COMMUNITY OUTREACH TOUR
A grassroots movement starts with a call for change from everyday people challenging an imperfect world. The civil right’s movement and women’s right to vote both started with concerned citizens taking a stand.
WHAT'S YOUR RED FLAG
Newspapers were cluttered with headlines of the very public act of violence against Rihanna in 2009. Overnight, Rihanna’s private nightmare became a public debate. “She deserved it.” “She is trying to get attention.” “She started it.”
POSTCARDS TO THE EDGE
Breaking the imaginary ‘fourth wall’ and bringing an audience inside your film is one of the most difficult tasks of filmmaking. Audiences are inherently used to the passive action of watching a film.
Connecting is easy. Maintaining a connection is hard. It’s not enough to have an audience simply watch Sin by Silence. We want our audience to be affected by its message and become stewards of change.
You’ve crafted a compelling message carefully choosing each word to elicit the right emotions. You’ve spent countless hours collecting the right data, resources, and know what information matters most to your audience. Now what?
A film cannot answer every question before the credits roll. If it did, the audience would have to sit through 12 hours and be demanding an intermission. But, how do you address the issues that audiences want to explore?
The universal message of Sin by Silence is to stop the violence! Whether you volunteer at a shelter, donate, reach out to students or advocate for better policies – everyone has a role to play in combating the global pandemic of violence against women.
Documentaries and non-profit organizations often share the same vision for social justice. Building a bridge between the two can be help leverage social impact beyond conventional streams. Non-profits hold the keys to new audiences and already established avenues of outreach.
Social justice filmmakers always dream of having legislative impact. A chance to strategically create change that truly makes a concrete difference. A movement that leads to tangible change by framing a largely invisible issue in meaningful human terms.
