Buffalo 8 has launched a new marketing division with former entertainment publicist Theo Dumont.
Dumont’s new division will oversee marketing and publicity campaigns for projects financed by Buffalo 8 and BondIt Media Capital, as well as for clients of the company’s marketing division.
Previously with Miller PR and MGM Studios, Dumont launched his own marketing and publicity company Dumont Marketing in 2011. His previous projects and clients included Netflix’s “She’s Gotta Have It,” “A Boy A Girl ADream” co-writer Samantha Tanner, “What Happened to Monday” writer Kerry Williamson and the Spike Lee film “Black Klansmann.”
“I’m honored to be teaming up with the Buffalo 8 team to create a new division that will help amplify high quality entertainment globally,” Dumont said in a statement. “I’ve been impressed for years with what Matthew, Luke, Patrick and Steven have been building and I’m excited to help create this latest chapter, Buffalo 8 Marketing.”
“Theo is a top-notch professional in the world of entertainment marketing and has been a tremendous partner for Buffalo 8 and BondIt Media Capital. Theo brings world-class marketing and publicity experience as well his first-rate relationships to our projects. We are thrilled to partner together in building this important new unit of Buffalo 8, which adds a critical piece to our vision of a “one-stop shop” offering for our projects and management clients,” said Matthew Helderman, Buffalo 8 and BondIt Media Capital co-founder and CEO.
