Who is this guy?

I'm Steve Thompson, and I love movies.  

I remember my Dad taking my brother and I to see The Alamo back in the early 60s.  

I remember seeing Bonnie and Clyde at the Crest Theater in Philadelphia in the late 60s.  Then Steve McQueen in Bullitt, The Thomas Crown Affair, and many others.
Back in 2000, after twenty years in the advertising agency business, 
I decided to move out of manufacturing marketing and into promoting movies, 
and I'm grateful that the industry has welcomed me.

I've been fortunate enough to promote over thirty films and work with 
Academy Award Winner Cliff Robertson for ten years.

In late 2010, I got to attend a screening of Bullitt in Hollywood with the cast,
and Steve McQueen's family.  To me, that was a once in a lifetime opportunity, 
which I was extremely fortunate to be able to experience and enjoy.

Now, no one can tell me what's impossible.  I have no magic powers.  I decided upon what I wanted to accomplish with my life, and I did what I thought was necessary to attain my goals.  And one day at a time I made it happen.

There are no guarantees in the movie business, and there is no one right or wrong way to do things.  I have a set of opinions based upon my experience, but I also know that everyone has their own path to follow.

I know what has worked for me, and that's what I offer to my clients.

I encourage you to contact me if you would like to join me in this journey in one way or another.
