We are here to help you reach your goals.
My name is Thomas Gidlow, and I am the founder of Skyphire Entertainment.
Over the past five years, we have honed our processes in the development, pre-production, casting, and production areas that have helped contribute to establishing us in the industry.
In setting up our services in these fields, we have taken a look at the landscape and asked ourselves a simple question: what can we do, despite being on our own way ourselves, to help more creatives get where they want to be?
It may sound crazy in a business known for being more cutthroat than collaborative at times, but we truly feel we can help get your project in a better position to succeed than might be done on your own or with a small team.
Read on for more details. If you feel like we can help, feel free to send us an email (instructions below).
Aim higher and reach farther
Skyphire Entertainment seeks to assist productions
We are looking to help with your creative endeavors in the fields of short films, episodic TV series pilots, and feature films.
Skyphire Entertainment is an independent film production company based in the greater Raleigh, NC area. We are branching out from our busy slate of projects to offer our services to creatives in order to assist in your quest in bringing your vision to life.
While we are a new company, we have big aims within the entertainment industry. Our vision is a world where creatives from all corners of the country have opportunities to reach the goals they set out for themselves. We can't walk you through the door - but we can help bring you to it so you can reach the door and open it yourself.
Our suite of services includes, but is not limited to, story and script review, assisting with project development, coordinating production details, full-service casting, tailored pre-production and production options, on-the-day producing and much more.
If you're serious about moving your project forward, sometimes even just a fresh pair of eyes makes all the difference. Whatever level of creative you are or aspire to be, we want to help you realize the potential of your project.
HOW WE CAN HELP
We talk over the service(s) that best meet your needs.
Our Work Begins
We roll up our sleeves and get to work on your project.
Your Vision to Life
Move forward with confidence in your project's future.
As any creative knows, the work that goes into a project before a single shot is filmed can be difficult, tedious, stressful, and highly time consuming. Skimping out or missing any of the many small details involved can lead a project to ruin. That so it's important that no stone is left unturned.
We have developed and fine-tuned conceptual, pre-production, and on-the-day production processes that will put your project on its best possible foot forward, no matter how small or big your aims are. Plus, our methods will increase your visibility in the local and regional industry, further yourself and your project to the acting, crew, and entertainment community, and bring the people you need together to create works that will further all of your goals.
Skyphire Entertainment is a film production company developing several projects over the next few years with the aims of reaching major streaming platforms for widest possible viewing. We have made inroads with our "Camisado" project, which is now back into re-development, and continue to work diligently on our other projects to create a wide-ranging portfolio. Through this work, we have developed processes that help to streamline every detail of a production while maintaining a highly honed attention to detail. We are proud of the work we've done and continue to do with a positive and honest approach to creating.
We believe that everyone aspiring to be in the business has the basic right to have their voices heard. One of our proudest services is our Full Casting option, where we dig through all applicants - responding to every single submission - to find the best actor for each role. Plus, our Casting Notices are highly detailed so that everyone submitting, from the cast through the crew, knows exactly what's in store for them and the future of the project.
Our goal is to help your project reach its full potential - but we are not gatekeepers, nor do we initiate meetings with those in the industry on your behalf. We know what we can do to best help your creative project: here are some specific items that we do not offer assistance with:
Procuring distribution, optioning, or pick-up*
Providing or procuring production equipment
Funding procurement and/or Monetary Backing**
*= We can offer advice on some avenues to explore, but we do not offer these services specifically.
**= In extremely limited circumstances, we may provide some funding. This is determined on a case-by-case basis.
We certainly do not guarantee your project will be successful, nor do we cultivate relationships within the business on your behalf. In the end, you are the best voice to get your project to the finish line you want to reach. We are here to help you reach that line.
Please keep this in mind before submitting your project.
