SODA Pictures & Slate Films | Half Of A Yellow Sun
We worked with Rebecca to promote Half of a Yellow Sun, Biyi Bandele’s debut feature. Creating a profile for a first feature, where the director does not have an existing film profile to call on, takes strategic thinking, energy, imagination and commitment, and Rebecca has all of those in spades. Everyone involved in making a film like this has to put their heart and soul into it to make it possible, and it’s a great feeling when the publicist becomes part of that team, and puts her heart and soul into it too.
Ladbury was approached by Nigerian born playwright and novelist, Biyi Bandele to work on the release of his first feature film, the screen adaptation of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s celebrated novel, Half Of A Yellow Sun. Ladbury worked with the press team at Soda Pictures and Producer Andrea Calderwood of Slate Films to secure a range of high profile media interviews in the run up to its theatrical release in April 2014.
