"We recently hired Silverlining to source financing for a 13 part series we had just developed. Within a week of working with Bethan, she had brought a very interested broadcaster to the table. We are now in production, and couldn't be happier. Bethan has wonderful television instincts and great relationships with the international factual community. We wouldn't hesitate recommending the services of Silverlining."
Ann Marie Redmond and Marlo Miazga, Newroad Media
"Bethan Corney and Silverlining really "get" our programmes and have always offered strong commercial and editorial support for our shows. Their international contacts are outstanding."
Chris Shaw, Editorial Director, ITN Productions
“For over 20 years we did all the pitching and finance chasing for our international co-pros ourselves - well, finally that has changed and we won't go back! Working with Silverlining has made such a difference. Bethan Corney is not only a great joy to work with, she's an extremely well connected, diligent and sharp player, bringing amazing results even under super-tight deadlines. If you need to spend your time with the other 3 million things that need to be done on every project, we'd highly recommend you engage Silverlining.”
