Svengali is a film directed by John Hardwick based on a story by Jonny Owen.  Martin Freeman plays the part of Chris who is a frustrated TV producer.


Prior to launch of the film, they need a central point to provide information on the film.  A marketing strategy was under way to promote the film, but there was  a requirement to have a website which the press releases could be directed back to.


Designed by Root, Developed by Wirebox, the Svengali Movie website attracts thousands of film and music buffs to learn more about this remarkable story.

Wirebox were instructed to follow a precise design to build the site within a WordPress CMS, integrated within their growing social media presence. On Facebook alone Svengali has in excess of 8,000 fans, which was a medium to distribute the message and film launch across the UK and Europe.



Within the CMS each update and news item can be easily shared through links to social media, utilising the available APIs.

In addition the Twitter feed constantly updates the home page of the site whilst a single click allows additional followers on Facebook or instant Tweets.
