Christina Martin Wraps Up Fiscal Year 2007

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - October 12, 2007) - Rock music, film festivals, product placement, political fundraising -- that almost sums up 2007 for Christina Martin, President of the boutique consulting firm, Equity Strategic Relations. In this year, Martin has launched a powerful industry luncheon series, created and produced Pointfest's first artists' lounges backstage, raised funds and support for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, and engaged several significant deals for television and mobile content based upon her work with rock stars.

Wrapping up an incredibly successful year, Martin reflects upon some of the highlights. "All the big annual events for me -- Oscars, Emmys, Grammys, VMAs, Sundance, Toronto -- were especially memorable this year, full of poignant moments, the kind that belong in a book some day."

When thinking of 2007 and Christina Martin, one might remember her consulting Final Draft, the industry's leading script-writing software; her hosting the 30 Under 30 Awards honoring laudable stars like Chamillionaire and Andrew McMahon; her personally delivering gift bags to Hollywood Radio & Television Society's HRTS Kids Day; and her representing "Aqua Teen Hunger Force"'s voice of Master Shake, Dana Snyder.

Martin recollects lessons from the year, including on-set in Pittsburgh with Danny Masterson and Blair Underwood. "It was Blair's first time directing and I felt very lucky to see that firsthand. I learned so much from watching him." In addition to Masterson, the cast included Ben Crowley, Bijou Phillips, Thomas Ian Nicholas and Ving Rhames. Produced by Smithfield Street Productions, led by Mike Wittlin, the film is titled "The Bridge to Nowhere."

"2007 has been a pivotal year for Equity," comments Martin, "and what am I most looking forward to in 2008? To see many of the artists I am cheering for, to see them succeed." Martin's dedication to deserving talent remains the motivation behind her drive to influence media and public opinion. Artists at the top of her list: "King Thief, The Go, The Ruse, Mink, Operator, Rooney, Solarcade, Marty Casey Lovehammers, White Starr, Mickey Avalon -- on the music side. In film/TV -- Joshua LeBar, Rex Lee, Jojo Holland, Mirelly Taylor, A.J. Buckley, Lyriq Bent, Shaun Toub, DJ Rossstar, Paulie Litt, Holly Bonelli."

With the approach of 2008, it's clear the year holds a lot in store for Martin. As an election year, Martin is vying to see Hillary Clinton become the first female president of the United States. There is also talk that Martin may soon resume work in the investment industry, which she left in 2003, departing a $9 billion fixed income fund as Vice President at the age of 25.
