Aventine Hill Films is a unique and proven development and consulting company that specializes in transmedia narrative creation, engineering and marketing.
Aventine Hill Films takes its name from the Aventine Hill in Rome. One of the seven hills of the ancient city, the Aventine was named for the flocks of birds that the mythological character Romulus observed while he watched over the building of the city. But perhaps the most notable aspect of the hill was that in 456BC as Rome grew in size, parts of this affluent suburb were given to the common people, thereby giving them equal access to the land as the royalty they served. In this same spirit and in the spirit of classic storytelling, Aventine Hill Films seeks, develops and produces projects that deal with accessible and identifiable heroic characters, their struggles and triumphs. Our projects are carefully engineered to reflect our world in every sense, so that our core audience can really see aspects of their own realities in our properties as well as find truly expansive expressions of them in several media forms. We we put years of study in film, storytelling and market science into our work to ensure that we touch people in the deepest ways possible. After all, storytelling is one of the world's oldest services...and all stories are in some sense, "our" story.
