“Ahoy there…!”

… Bruno Chatelin and market users, Cinando, have set their sights on a film production Voyage.

The weather forecasts our market navigation to a place labelled by a small letter “i”

Could the “i” icon bring the “Italian Job” on board?

Would a new character label “from Russia with Love” or “Fancy French Documentary”

and a starring IFTA objectives base, go beyond a London Producers meet up?

Do the The Micro Budget Horrors of Messaging film titles in My AFM bring our convictions down to just “Dr No”
or lead us through an adventure in the unchartered export waters saved from film piracy ?

The on demand lights out brings out the stars,

“Sales companies Ahoy!”.
