Anna has worked with many projects within Bankhouse in many different aspects. During the run up to the cinema release of our movie SOUTH Anna wore many different hats, securing cinema distribution, organising press screening, premiere screening, all PR and much more. Anna looks after any press release we need within the company and is a very valued voice at any strategy meeting.
Energetic, enthusiastic and dedicated, Anna is a highly professional pr and marketing consultant.
During my time as Operations Manager at LA College of Creative Arts, I worked with Anna on a number of pr and marketing campaigns and events across Dublin & London. Throughout the campaigns, Anna worked hard, shared her knowledge and experience in her specialised areas of event management, pr and marketing. It was a pleasure working with Anna & look forward to working with her again in the near future.
Anna worked with me on the run-up to the premiere of my feature film, THE HIT PRODUCER and beyond.
She is truly brilliant at what she does, managing to organize a junket for the event and organizing interviews for the press (printed, online and broadcast) to promote the event and the run of the film. Anna is an amazing person to work with who not only really knows what she does but will exceed expectations. I would not hesitate a beat to work with her again.
Anna is a dedicated, passionate publicist who really knows her market. She was one of the champions of the digital space, and was one of studio publicists to see the potential of digital PR and social media. Nobody I've worked with has their finger on the pulse of what works and what doesn't work in the Irish digital space. She is an asset to any team.
Anna Lavery worked for the Walt Disney Studios in Ireland from 1999 to 2003 as publicity and promotions assistant when I held the position of marketing director. Anna worked across all areas of publicity and promotions for our releases across all Disney branded movies and movies from our studios (including Touchstone, Hollywood Pictures, Pixar, Jerry Bruckheimer Films and Miramax) as well as Irish acquisitions. This would have totalled over 100 movies during that period.
As my #2, she assisted me on all aspects relating to the marketing and publicity campaigns including event management. As she particularly excelled in promotions, she very quickly made this area her own and became the key driver. Anna left us for a publicity and promotions managerial opportunity with another major studio and it has been good to see her growth and development as a manager in the entertainment industry and in recent years in the wider business arena.
Anna Lavery is a truly gifted individual of the highest integrity, her work is superlative and exceeded expectation. Having decided to rebrand and redevelop the Communicare Healthcare brand and website Anna has proved herself to be an expert in her field and delivers the project ahead of time. Another talented Holy Faith Clontarf alumni.....I hope to work alongside Anna in the future.
As Press & Marketing Officer for Cinemagic International Film & Television Festival for 8 years, I have worked with Anna on numerous occasions and she is efficient and well organised in everything she does. Anna is always willing to support the work we deliver and has helped Cinemagic secure fantastic films and film previews for our young audiences over the years. She has an excellent understanding of how our festival operates and a deep awareness and respect for other people’s deadlines which is vital when planning events and working with the media. It is always a pleasure working with Anna and she goes above and beyond to ensure things go to plan!
Anna and I have worked together for over 14 years on various collaborations and over that time Anna has always been totally professional, her focus is always on achieving mutual benefits and building long term relationships. Her passion and natural flair for the entertainment industry as well as her excellent marketing skills have ensured that she consistently delivers excellent results with charisma and humour.
It's always such a pleasure dealing with Anna Lavery. Having worked with numerous film distributors over the last 14 years in London, New York and Dublin, she is simply the best in the business. A consummate professional who carefully balances the needs of media, client and guests, Anna is always a gracious host who deftly handles a high-pressure environment with aplomb. In such a competitive industry she demonstrates creativity when promoting a film - no matter what its subject matter - whilst maintaining Paramount's definity.
I have worked with Anna on a number of projects over the years. She really is the consummate professional, and despite the long and late hours her role requires, she is always a pleasure to deal with. She manages to balance being supremely creative with being practical and capable, which is a rare and enviable mix. Whether in a meeting or managing a large social event, Anna is more than a match for any situation, and has earned her reputation as the best in her business.
Anna worked with me on the lead up to the simultaneous Cinema/DVD/VOD release of my feature film, Demon Hunter. She is incredible at what she does, managing to land interviews with myself and the star Niamh Hogan for the media (papers, social media and radio) to promote the release of Demon Hunter. Anna is very dedicated, committed and communicative. If it wasn't for Anna's hard work then Demon Hunter wouldn't of reached its target audience in Ireland. I will certainly jump on the opportunity to work with Anna again if it happens!
Having worked with Anna on an array of projects. Whether it be a small short film pre-festival to a large feature project with distribution; Anna will create links to the right people, so that the story can get heard by the best audience. She consistently gets behind all filmmakers whether they be established or emerging and she has an eye for trends. She has also been courteous in dealing with talent and ensuring people feel comfortable with the press and I can safely say that I will be working with Anna on projects going forward.
Anna is a natural and positive marketeer thats brings with her years of experience, confidence and contacts. Her work together with me in structuring and strategising the business marketings and development of Youth Nation was outstanding. I would without reservation, endorse and recommend her service and talent.
