Experienced in digitalising the audiovisual sector, Backup Media is taking a stake in Moonday. The French group, which is already active in production and distribution, is thus supporting Moonday's growth through its network and financing capabilities, and is also benefiting from the synergies between Moonday and Moviechainer.




In the coming months, this partnership will allow us to offer users of both platforms new complementary services for increased efficiency and additional time savings in prospecting, management and monitoring of productions.


"There are many pre-existing links between our two tools. So the collaboration was obvious for us as well as for the managers of Backup," explains Olivier Bronckart, co-founder of Moonday.

"Although each product will remain independent, the aim is to enable synergies that will benefit the users of each of the services and to develop complementary tools that will make professionals' lives easier".


As the first European agency specialising in the search for international financing, Backup Films offers professionals expert support, building tailor-made solutions at every stage of a film's life. In addition to this bridge between finance and entertainment, Jean-Baptiste Babin, Backup Media co-founder, launches MovieChainer: a strategic and commercial management tool for audiovisual and cinema industries. It increases the efficiency of work and optimises the profitability of the company. 


As a reminder, Moonday is the first social network exclusively dedicated to audiovisual and film professionals. It offers an extensive database powered by artificial intelligence and user collaboration, all enhanced by communication tools that facilitate prospecting, information and teamwork. In addition, Moonday also offers tools specific to the needs of funds, commissions and unions. Launched by Olivier Bronckart after 25 years of experience in production, distribution and funding through his previous companies (Versus Production, O'Brother, Inverinvest), the platform has been available to professionals since February 2020. It is proving to be as successful as the digitisation of work would suggest.


Moonday and Moviechainer will meet in September to present their new tools/services and allow users of both platforms to collaborate.
