“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.”

“I've known Bethan for about 10 years and during that time she's really impressed me with her ability to pull together a diverse range of broadcasters, distributors and producers to find the best solutions for funding content. Her success isn't only based on her vast network of contacts, but also on her practical, transparent and forthright approach to brokering partnerships.”
