The Lowry Agency Signs Smirk & Dagger Games

Smirk & Dagger Games

The Lowry Agency to represent Smirk & Dagger Games in the entertainment industryBy: The Lowry Agency

Smirk & Dagger Games

Smirk & Dagger Games NASHVILLE, Tenn.April 25, 2016PRLog — The Lowry Agency (http://www.thelowryagency.com) in association with Club Fantasci (http://www.clubfantasci.com), have announced their partnership with Smirk & Dagger Games (http://www.smirkanddagger.com) in bringing their catalog of games -along with all their expansions-to the entertainment industry for more mass marketing opportunities.

Smirk & Dagger Games has a unique take on game design, producing games with an uncanny ability to engage players emotionally, with successful titles like Cutthroat Caverns and Nevermore. The Lowry Agency saw an equally unique opportunity to introduce a whole new audience to these types of games and is excited to be working with owner/designer, Curt Covert.

“Smirk & Dagger Games is delighted to have the Lowry Agency as a partner. David is an avid fan of games and the gaming industry, who is striving hard to push the boundaries of conventional marketing and break into new territories that will introduce and elevate the board gaming hobby to a much wider audience. A rock-n-roll approach to help us all turn it up “to 11″.” says Curt Covert, President at Smirk & Dagger Games.

David Lowry, President at The Lowry Agency, spent hours talking with board game publishers at the GAMA Trade Show in Las Vegas in March. Through his discussions, it became increasingly clear the board game industry has little exposure to the general market-despite how much the industry has grown and continues to grow thanks to a passionate player base and amazing games. Part of this disconnect, Lowry theorizes, is an industry-wide lack of experience in tapping into these markets These amazing pools of talent can translate into big exposure, and that’s where the Lowry Agency comes in.

“The Lowry Agency is dedicated to bringing top-notch marketing tools, skills and opportunities to the board gaming industry. It is my desire to bring the new boom of board gaming and the incredible experiences they provide to the general public.” says Lowry. “Board games have moved way beyond Monopoly, and the public needs to know that.”

David Lowry is a former touring musician and has been in the music business for over 20 years, doing management, PR, marketing and promotions with former Billboard Top 10 artists such as Brother Cane, Damon Johnson and the Juno award-winning Sass Jordan. David has also done PR and marketing in the board game industry with various publishers for over 3 years now. Playing board games since he was a child, David understands both sides of the mediums inside and out.

The Lowry Agency Launches The Lowry Agency Mentorship Program

The Lowry Agency in partnership with Rocketown and McGavock High School launch a new mentorship program.

ANTIOCH, Tenn.Jan. 30, 2018PRLog — The Lowry Agency in association with Rocketown and McGavock High School and their Academies Program have announced the launch of The Lowry Agency Mentorship Program that mentors youth in video production, graphic design, audio engineering and voice over as well as other aspects of marketing.

The Lowry Agency Mentorship Program was put together to help teach disenfranchised youth a set of career skills that will get them a job or allow them to start their own business with a professional body of work when they finish high school. It is the goal of this program to give every kid a shot at a happy, fulfilling career at a good standard of living. Going through this program will help these youth to start their own business, be able to find a job easier and also take steps to achieve their dreams as soon as their feet hit the ground. The Lowry Agency will use projects from all of their other media properties to give these kids plenty of opportunities to improve their skills, be creative and shine for all the world to see, including FLGS-TV, Club Fantasci and Live From Music City Radio. The Lowry Agency will donate 50% of the fee charged for each project that these youth work on to Rocketown (http://www.rocketown.com.) The Lowry Agency believes we must reinvest in our youth for them to have a brighter future and it is our responsibility to leave a legacy for others to follow.

David Lowry approached Rocketown about this program after donating over 200 games to them in Dec of 2016 for the Club Fantasci Christmas Game Program. Rocketown brought their existing relationship with McGavock High into the fold and after a year of planning, this program is ready to launch. The youth that participate in this program will be able to participate in the making of commercials for Lowry’s other company FLGS-TV. An online streaming platform for the board game industry. They will also be shooting live interviews, live stream events, music videos, EPK’s and designing and marketing brand new videos series targeted for both the board game and music industries. The students will get school credit for their completed projects. The goal is to get as many different departments involved as possible allowing for them to use budding actors, graphic designers, marketing skills, producing and developing brand new content of their own they will be used to reach their demographic.

“The Lowry Agency has always worked by the ethic that we don’t do anything if it doesn’t benefit others in the process. We believe in doing, not talking and that is where The Lowry Agency Mentorship Program comes from. We are not only excited, but honored and privileged to be able to work with both of these wonderful entities, Rocketown and McGavock High School, to help teach and train the future of our industries. We have always sought to help those who aren’t starting on a level playing field. No matter where you are in life, it is always tough to be able to provide. We are trying to help give these kids get the skills to make that future easier.” – David Lowry, President at The Lowry Agency.

FLGS-TV Begins Production For a New Marketing Platform

FLGS TV

FLGS-TV launches into production for support of the brick & mortar retail game stores.

FLGS-TV

FLGS-TV ANTIOCH, Tenn.April 26, 2017PRLog — FLGS-TV™ (www.flgstv.com) today announced the beginning of video production for their upcoming board game retail TV network. The network, set for launch this August, breaks new ground in the booming board game industry by delivering game-related video content direct to retail stores, where it can entice shoppers with a stream of new board games available for purchase at the shop. The fledgling network has begun work with game publishers, large and small, in creating a series of 30-second features, showcasing the art, components and key selling points of their games.

“With over 4000 new game titles coming out each year, it has become increasingly difficult for retailers and game fans to stay informed,” said David Lowry, FLGS-TV’s Founder and President. “Our goal is to work with every single publisher in bringing their games to life in quick, beautiful videos that will educate and inform customers and sales staff alike about the titles being sold in the store.”

The videos are streamed direct to TV monitors in the store and intercut with custom retailer slides, animating their logo and announcing upcoming store events for the week. The customization for each store extends the video content itself, as retailers can toggle on and off the videos in their stream based on the specific games they sell and wish to feature, with the ability to change on the fly should a title sell out.

“The ability to curate the video feed was a mandatory for retailers,” said Curt Covert, Marketing Director and co-founder. “And it was our imperative that all publishers would be represented and provided an equal opportunity to shine. The videos are formatted in such a way that we can produce them very economically, meaning that even a new publisher can have a video of their game produced and made available on the network for about the same cost as placing a banner ad on other websites.”

Production has begun on games that are due to release in the summer of 2017 and will expand to include entire lines and legacy games in the fall.

“And that is just the beginning,” David said. “We have plans to work with publishers on additional video content, including “How to Play” videos, “Quick Sell” videos, monthly highlight reels, as well as fully produced TV shows that will broaden the reach and expand the audience of gaming into the mainstream market like never before.”

About FLGS TV

FLGS TV was created to help retailers sell more board games, by turning existing in-store TV monitors into dynamic Point of Sale merchandising.

Partnering with game publishers to create simple, 30 second TV ads, highlighting their most current titles, FLGS TV provides a cost-free, completely customizable stream of board game ‘eye candy’ to intrigue shoppers and drive inquiries at your counter. The ad stream is easily and quickly tailored to the specific needs of each retailer, showing only those games they currently have in stock or may wish to showcase as ‘Coming Soon.’

Created by two industry insiders, FLGS TV provides affordable marketing for the publisher who wishes to support their brick &, mortar retailers with effective, compelling, in-store content to help drive sales.
