It has been delightful working with SMP. I have found them to be honest, trustworthy, professional, highly experienced, motivated & they know what they are doing. Sales Agents don't often offer near the level of transparency that SMP do in a very challenging landscape for film sales. They are stalwarts that don’t give up the fight until they have done the best for your film. I recommend their services to any producer.
Rebecca Long, Producer, KAT AND THE BAND, Boudica Entertainment

We have been consistently impressed with Silver Mountains commitment to our feature documentary and their communication with us on planning and strategy. They have created a sense that we are working in partnership and we hope that we will be able to work with them on further projects.
Dave Evans, Producer/Director, MY GRANDFATHER THE SPY

It has been 25 years since Carey & Ronald handled distribution for my feature, MIAMI MODELS. Their savvy marketing and dedication to generating sales is legendary. The best thing for me, as an American filmmaker, is that they know EVERYONE in the foreign markets; in terms of festivals and buyers, who speak of their sterling reputation. For us, the bottom line is always results, and they deliver! I look forward to continue working with them at Silver Mountain Productions.
Paul Madden, Director, THE BLACK DUCK INCIDENT, Madden Media
